Big de­mand for State of Stance

The Witness - Wheels - - FRONT PAGE -

WHEN it comes to car shows in KZN, petrol­heads have a firm favourite, the an­nual State of Stance hosted at the Pavil­ion Shop­ping Cen­tre Westville this week­end.

Mar­itzburg’s Des­mond “Dizzy” Goven­den will be the mas­ter of cer­e­monies and told

Wheels the name refers to the low­ered sus­pen­sion most per­for­mance cars have.

Goven­den says young driv­ers of­ten take a grinder to their coil springs to drop the sus­pen­sion — or the car’s “stance” — but warned this de­stroys a car’s han­dling.

He said the ad­justable coilover sus­pen­sions that will be on dis­play at the show, al­lows cars to hun­ker down for tracks and can then eas­ily be ad­justed to pro­vide ride height over speed humps for safe driv­ing.

“State of Stance cel­e­brates the car cul­ture with dis­plays of pre­ci­sion driv­ing, per­for­mance equip­ment and all the mu­sic and life­style ac­tiv­i­ties that goes with the free­dom of driv­ing,” Goven­den said.

Now in its fourth year the State of Stance 2018 of­fers fes­ti­val go­ers drift­ing, spin­ning, an SA Strong­man Chal­lenge, bike stunts.

Static dis­plays in­clude a sound off, hot rods, cus­tom bikes and dyno tests.

The event will also fea­ture some of South Africa’s most tal­ented lo­cal artists, with thou­sands of pa­trons tra­di­tion­ally turn­ing the day’s Drift Arena into a dance floor at night.

Satur­day’s ticket costs R180, which in­cludes ac­cess to the evening’s af­ter party, and Sun­day’s day pass costs R100, with no af­ter party. VIP tick­ets are also avail­able for the two days.
