Street2Strip Reloaded: Old School vs New School

A battle based on your car’s year model.


This coming Friday 21 January Killarney Race Track will host another Street2Strip Streetcar event from 7pm till 11pm. The event includes ¼ Mile Drags (on the main straight), Drifting practice on the oval (7 till 9pm) and a night Gymkhana practice at the oval (9 till 11pm), all for Streetcars. Entries from 6pm till 9pm at the main gate.

Entrance fee: R30
Driver/Racing fee: R20

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 6pm till 9pm) – show SA Drivers license and complete required paperwork / indemnity.
  • 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. Crash helmets are available for hire from Dominic.
  • 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 street racers who are racing in and around Cape Town. As there will be no formal competition and this is aimed purely at the street racers, 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 street racers with RSA drivers licenses. 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 canceled 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.)
