DRAGS 8 AUGUST 2015

With everyone all over social
media about ODI Road Trips and the ODI event itself, we were left
back in Cape Town sad that we couldn’t join in the fun.
We hadn’t been to the track in a while. In between covering
the Malaysian Grand Prix, Bangkok Motor Show, Winter and the month
of Fasting, life has just been keeping us away.
With a long weekend in effect and clear skies predicted I knew
we had to make a plan to attend the Drags and Drifting scheduled
for the 08th of August.
Expectations were low with a lot of Cape Town’s big guns
in attendance at ODI and many guys taking the long weekend off
for some much needed R & R. But we were pleasantly surprised
by the few out of Towner’s who made the trip for the Drags,
from Mossel Bay, PE with some Durban and Gauteng guys in the mix.
As a spectator we always want more cars, more fast cars in attendance,
but as a racer sometimes we prefer a quieter day at Killarney.
Most drivers will tell you, it’s when they get the most
track time and the shorter times between runs help in improving
on your Personal Best’s.
So while no records were broken, overall it was a great “quiet”
event at the drags, as usual Killarney Racers don’t disappoint.
