STREET RACING & DRAG RACING AT KILLARNEY
Killarney often host’s Club Drags, Street2Strip and a Streetcar Track day each month with many competitors from all over the Western Cape and as far away as George and Knysna. Many of these events are given a name and identity with added promotion and attractions resulting in bigger crowds and more interest from spectators.
These events provide a great introduction into motorsport where the competitors get to use their own road legal cars, in most cases, on the circuit without too much hassle and the costs involved. Our Street2Strip events fees to get onto the circuit is only R20 excluding your entrance fee to get into the circuit making the normal Street2Strip events only R50 and you are burning rubber on the track. These events also allow the RWD cars to practice some drifting on the oval and if there is enough support we will set up a short obstacle course to keep the drivers entertained.
The WPMC Club Drag days offer the faster drivers the chance to strut their stuff, this as Street2Strip has a 13 second rule and if you go quicker you are not allowed back for safety reasons, under the banner of MSA with all the licences and medical cover in place. We often run bigger events with added promotion and other added attractions and this always results in more competitors and spectators. The queues are also often less on these MSA days allowing these competitors more runs and less standing time.
The Killarney Streetcar Track days keep attracting some special cars and its not unusual to see several Audi R8s and often some top end Sportscars including Ferrari and Porsche. There are three groups on the day accommodating everyone from the first timer to the pro racer in his streetcar. The fee to ride is R690 per driver and R200 for passengers, WPMC club members pay R550. We hold a safety brief at the beginning of each event and ask that all first times attend this briefing.
Long pants, long sleeve tops and a decent crash helmet are all required for all drivers and passengers at all our S2S and Trackday events. The vehicles are also required to pass a safety check.
