Behind The Scenes: Drag Race

Behind The Scenes: Drag Race
August 20, 2015 @ 6:20 pm by Ciro De Siena

 

Every now and then when it stops raining in Cape Town, the Cars.co.za team takes over the Killarney Race Track and… well, it’s a lot of fun.

The circuit has a drag strip and as you may have seen, we have staged some rather epic races which have been a hit with our Youtube audience.

We’ve also started making use of the full circuit for races, now that we have our very own actual racing driver, Ashley Oldfield. He’s really ridiculously good at going fast, he’s won the Knysna Hill Climb twice and also won the 1000 km of Silverstone, as well as a podium finish at the Dubai 24 Hour. There can’t be many South Africans who have been sprayed with champagne on the top podium at Silverstone.

And so we thought we’d give you an idea of what it takes to capture these races, in a behind the scenes video from our last drag day. As you’ll see, coffee and doughnuts are as essential as petrol.
