Admission: R30pp 12 years and older

This coming Saturday Killarney will be hosting an official practice session for the drag racing competitors from 9.30am till 1pm (entries 9am till 11.30am) allowing these faster competitors an opportunity to test their vehicles, this session will be followed by another Killarney Street2Strip event from 1.30pm till 8pm (entries 1pm till 4pm).

The official practice competitors need to hold current MSA competition licences to be able to practice, licences will be available at entries from R350. Entry fee for this session is R50 per competitor, this includes a complimentary ticket to get yourself or a crew member in for the day. Drag cars doing quicker than 13 second runs are not permitted at Street2Strip events for safety reasons so come catch them before lunch break on the day.

After a short lunch break the Street2Strip side of the event will start on the main straight, drivers for this event do not require licences however will be required to complete the documentation at the main gate and pass the vehicle safety check in Turn 5 by the start line. The fee to compete here is also a total of only R50, R30 ticket to get into the facility and another R20 admin fee to compete.

Various foods and refreshments are available on the facility or spectators are welcome to bring their own, skottle braais are welcome or use one of the various braai stands available on site. Be sure to catch some of the Short Circuit Racing action on the oval side of the circuit followed by some drifting practice from about 6pm till 8pm.

This coming Saturday, Killarney Race Track will host another Street2Strip Streetcar event from 1.30pm-8pm. The event includes ¼ Mile Drags(on the main straight) & Drifting practice on the oval from about 6pm till 8pm

Entry fee to get in is only R30 per person and is only another R20 to participate provided you complete the necessary paperwork and your vehicle passes the safety check in turn 5 – scrutineering bay. SA Drivers license required. Gates open at 8am, entries from 1pm till 4pm at the main gate.

So if you or anyone you know has ever wanted to put their streetcar onto the Killarney main straight this is the perfect opportunity.

What to know to participate:

·         Entries (main gate caravan 1pm till 4pm) – show SA Drivers license and complete required paperwork / indemnity. R20 to participate / R30 admission

·         Vehicle check (go around Turn 5 and turn right into back of scrutineering building) – all wheel bolts required, battery must be fastened down properly and everything must be in general good working order. Required safety gear include long pants & top, closed shoes and SABS approved type crash helmet.

·         NOTE: Always drive slowly on the access roads and circuit while not participating.

·         Vehicles that have run quicker than a 13 second run are not permitted at Street2Strip events for safety reasons.


The idea of the Street 2 Strip events is to provide the facility at a nominal fee to streetracers who are racing in and around Cape Town. As there will be no formal competition and this is aimed purely at the Streetracers, no competition license will be required however indemnities will have to be completed. The timing lights will be in place however there will be no results posted nor prizes awarded at the end of the evening.

This event is aimed specifically at the streetcar streetracers with RSA drivers licence’s. So with that in mind there will be no motorcycles on the evening, no interruptions from the Club drag competitors, just a queue of streetcars wanting to take one another on down the strip. As we are planning to have many more of these types of events we are aware of noise pollution laws, we will not allow any vehicle even moderately too loud after 9pm. This includes some drifting practice at the oval side of the circuit when approved to run. So if you have an after market exhaust, don’t worry unless it is very noisy. Straight through exhaust will have a problem so please do be aware of the situation.

(Please note that rain could cause the Street2Strip event to be cancelled before the event or at any time during the event. No refunds, right of admission reserved. Times could also change as the organizers see fit to do so.)
