Killarney often host’s Club Drag racing, Robot Racing 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 Robot Racing events fees to get onto the circuit is only R70 that includes you entrance ticket and you are burning rubber on the track.
The WPMC Club Drag days offer the faster drivers the chance to strut their stuff, 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.
Entries open up (+-) 30min before the start of the event.
Drivers are separated into three groups on the day ranging from beginners, intermediated and pro. Each group runs (+-) 15min sessions up until roughly the last hour of the day whereby all groups are combined.
A drivers brief is held at the bottom of the control tower which explains the running procedures of the day as well as various safety items, meanings of the flags and what to look out for when driving your vehicle at high speeds around the track.
Safety requirements include long sleeve tops, long pants, closed shoes, a crash helmet and a valid drivers licence. Vehicles will also be required to pass a safety check before going onto the circuit, everything must be in good working order.
