Karenza @ ODI Raceway

9 February 2011 No Comment

Having matriculated at Garsfontein High School, Karenza, being brought up a petrolhead, started in this industry we all love on the karting track at the age of 9 years. As the (very few) years went by she graduated to stock street class in the national drag racing series whilst doing part time modeling. She has also contributed as a mascot for the SA vs UK tours for oval track for two consecutive years and has all through this time officiated at ODI Raceway, where she is now owner, promoter and organizer of all the events.

In this year, New Street Racing Series called “Street Wars” will be hosted by ODI Drag Racing Club at ODI. This series will consist of 3 legs and a final that will be happening on the 16th of December 2011. For this series there are various sponsors that are prepared to come on board and we are looking at R30 000.00 prize money for the final event.

General upgrades to the facilities are in the pipeline for the year as well as the possibility of incorporating some drifting and spinning with our drag racing events. They will also be hosting a regional and national this year!

The following dates have been identified for racing at ODI Raceway:

27 February 2011 – ¼ Mile and 1KM Top End

27 March 2011 – Street Wars Leg 1

22 April 2011 – Street Wars Leg 2

8 May 2011 – ¼ Mile and 1KM Top End

25/26 June 2011 – Battle of the Clubs / Regional

7 August 2011 – Street Wars Leg 3

28 August 2011 – National

2 October 2011 – ¼ Mile and 1KM Top End

6 November 2011 – Street Wars Leg 4

16 December 2011 – Summerslam & Street Wars Final

This is indeed an extremely well organized and attended venue which will be frequenting in the future and perhaps, after an upcoming dyno, send my ride flying down a few times.
