Killarney this weekend: Streetcar Track Day & WPMC Club Drag racing

27 July 2011 No Comment

This coming weekend Killarney will be hosting a Streetcar Open Track day on Saturday afternoon from 2pm till 6pm. This event allows members of the public the opportunity to drive their road going cars around the 3,2km long main circuit. Drivers are separated into one of three groups depending on their driving experience while the Porsche club will have two 15 minute sessions before joining the rest of the normal groups later in the day. Racing cars are allowed however if piloted by a race driver they will be pushed into group 3, for the very experienced drivers. Please see more info below on the Killarney Streetcar Track Days.

Sunday sees the quarter mile professionals bring out their machines to see who will be quickest over the 400 meter strip. If the recent official practice session is anything to go by spectators  should see several 10 second runs from the cars while many of the bikers achieved runs in the mid 9’s. The strip opens at 9am with runs scheduled to run till later in the afternoon. Some drifters have also made queries and could be ripping up the oval from late morning till about 2pm, we will see what happens here. Gates open at 8am and tickets are R30pp while under 12’s are free.

Race entries will be at the main gate caravan on Sunday morning from 8am till 10am. Racers are required to hold current MSA competition licences, the licence fee is R350 (excl club membership and medical cover if you go quicker than 13 seconds) and will be available at entries on the morning of the event.

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.
