Full Throttle

Imagine a day where the city is turned into a playground for petrolheads to spin their tyres and showoff their most prized possessions…

A stones throw away from the famous Bo Kaap where the best koeksisters (better known as donuts) are made the Grand Parade was transformed into a scene of smoke and mirrors…

This is DriftCity brought to us by Monster Energy Drink in association with Motorsport South Africa and the City Of Cape Town. The rules are simple two cars line up on a mirror image drift course and spin their tyres around in a screeching, smoke filled scene of Full Throttle pedal to the metal spectator friendly drift competition.

Toyota, Honda, Bmw Ford and more took part in the competition for top honours, the drivers all top class, it takes real skill to turn these cars sideways with such precision. It was great to see a woman represent in the Top 16 with multi-talented Firdous  Asmodien wowing the crowd with her skill behind the wheel…

This was a great event for the whole family to enjoy, the Drift Squad featuring our very own DJ Reddy D behind the wheel giving spectators a spin around a skid pad with no hands…

If you into drifting but do not have the money to fork out on tuning your ride a cheaper alternative would be a drift trike the cheapest form of drifting…

FULL THROTTLE IS THE ONLY WAY I KNOW…this is the motto of these riders and what an entertaining adrenaline fuelled sport this is. Congratulations to Shane Green for winning the competition and thank you to everyone involved in bringing the event to Cape Town hopefully we’ll see more in the years to come.
