On Sunday 27th July 2014, the Gauteng Motor Show proudly brings you the ‘Street 2 Strip Drag Off’ at The Rock Raceway circuit in Brakpan.

Car and bike clubs, this one is for you! Bring your own car and have some fun. All retro styles vs. ‘daily drives’ are welcome!

“Keen on taking your own car down a drag strip” says Rock Raceway’s Abie Sada. “Ready to test everything you love about your car? Think you can take on a ‘daily drive’ and win?” he continues. “Then come and join in the fun and ‘get dicing!’ With no timing equipment involved, competitors can look to enjoy good old-fashioned heads-up racing whilst DJ Rock keeps the music pumping and upbeat.”

All the action takes place in a safe environment, with officials and medical staff close at hand. However, if you’re not inclined to take part, then simply join the crowd and cheer on the competitiors as they race the 1/8 mile drag strip!

Plenty of food and refreshments will be on sale at this annual ‘moto-tainment’ show, so you won’t go hungry or thirsty. More importantly, you can also bring along the whole family and all enjoy a day of fun-filled, adrenaline-fuelled entertainment.
