Killarney Race Track, Cape Town.
If you’re wondering,
CPI in this case does not mean “consumer price index”.
Instead they are a national tuning company that’s becoming
rather well known amongst petrol heads due to their customer cars
getting awesome power gains and running very impressive time’s
on the strip with minimal inputs. They specialize in serial port
programming for most modern cars and are aimed at the guy who
wants more power without losing his mojo.
CPI recently hosted Street2Strip in conjunction
with Sarafina Consultants at Killarney Race Track in Cape Town.
With the Muslim month of Ramadaan coming to an end this event
was the first race meeting after a long break. The guys were more
than eager to rip up the quarter mile tar. Unfortunately the original
date which was the 25th of August got rained out. It was then
decided to move it to the 1st of September and what an awesome
day it turned out to be. With MSA drags happening from the morning,
CPI Street2Strip started after that around 6PM which ran till
just after 10PM. Four hours of racing with the queues going around
turn 5, Killarney was almost running at maximum capacity…
Myself and Raceweb newcomer Chevan got some
snaps of what went down. Once again I cannot guarantee we got
everyone, but I’m sure there’s a good chance we got
most of you who entered. Check out the gallery below for the rest
of the pics. Well done to CPI and Sarafina Consultants as well
as all their sponsors and partners for hosting a great event.
racer Zaheer Phillips smoking his VR6 on the warm up... Legendary
The CPI tuned GTR ran all by himself... nobody wanted to take
won the burnout competition in his 1J powered E30. A 5th gear
burnout is pretty damn impressive!
R33 got the golden boot to MSA drags as he broke out. He is doing
his "going home" run here.
S2000 was kicking ass for most of the event...
usual you always find some beauties parked in between all the
hustle and bustle...
Reynolds took part in his newly aqquired M-Coupe. Watch this space.
think VTEC must of kicked in here... Yo!
