10 Feb RACE PREVIEW – RALLYCROSS #1 – 18 FEBRUARY 2023
Killarney’s part tar, part gravel WRX course will be the venue for some intense door-to-door, mirror smacking racing, as well as the thrilling E36 Cup sideways action at the opening round of the 2023 Cape Town Rallycross series from 2:00pm to 6:00pm on Saturday 18 February.
If you’re looking for a thrilling experience, this is the event for you. Don’t miss out on the chance to get your blood pumping and your adrenaline running, and be sure not to miss this one
The day’s exciting action includes Short Circuit Racing on the Half Main circuit from 9:00am to 1:30pm, and MSA Drag Racing on the drag strip all day. And the best part is that spectator tickets cost only R80 for adults, R20 for scholars under 16 and free for children under 12 – and for that you get access to all three events. Western Province Motor Club members also get in free on production of their membership book at the gate on entry.
Rallycross combines the best aspects of rallying, drifting and oval track in one exciting, high-octane spectacle, with short four or six-lap sessions on a purpose-built, part-tarmac, part dirt-track circuit in a stadium-type arena that includes a huge jump and a lot of sideways action – and the good news for spectators is that you can sit anywhere on the stands and see almost the whole circuit.
The cars used in Rallycross are typically modified versions of production cars, with powerful engines and advanced suspension systems. The drivers must navigate a series of obstacles, including jumps, turns, and other hazards, in order to complete the course in the fastest time possible.
Rallycross is an exciting and thrilling sport, and is popular among both professional and amateur drivers.
The program features classes for four-cylinder cars of up to two litres and 130kW, and six-cylinder cars of up to 168kW, while the BMWs of the E36 Cup have their own class. But the big dogs are the cars in the open category, where almost anything goes, including genuine rally cars. There’s even a possibility of an all-tar category for drivers who want to get in on the action but don’t want to risk their cars on the dirt sections of the WRX layout.
