Team Boyz Toyz and club owner Brady Layman recently held a Sound and Park Off at Blaze Lounge in Ottery. The club is just around the block from me and I’ve decided to make a turn. On arrival I was greeted by Paul of Boyz Toyz and wife Anita. Paul really knows his story when it comes to building deafening systems and is always open for advice. There was a good mix of both show and sound car, some cars that I’ve never seen at events. One car that looked …

Round 8 Wesbank Super Series

With Killarney due to stage the eighth and penultimate round of the hard fought national WesBank Super Series on Saturday, spectators can look forward to what could easily be the most action packed race meeting of the year.
Firstly, the battle for championship honours is undoubtedly going to add high octane to the fire. In the innovative Bridgestone Production Car series for instance, while Michael Stephan leads the title chase in his Engen Xtreme Audi S4 he is only 24 points ahead of Hennie Groenewald’s Subaru WRX, with Anthony Taylor’s Afrox …

Quiet Interceptor

From the streets of Pniel we bring you one of the finest and meanest looking Quest on planet AM owned by Jetro Cijster. Previously owned by his mom, he turned this little sleeper to what it is today, one mean looking fearsome beast. At first the car was fitted with the original Toyota body kit and 16 inch TSW rims. After visiting a few shows in 2008 he decided to do some changes to the car, not only cosmetic wise but also power wise.

The red and black one belongs to Donovan and is no stranger to AM as well as to the Cape Town car scene.
 His car was featured …
