The business partner of drag racer Gert Vorster, who died on Sunday during a drag race in Durban when his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII hit a tree at more than 200 km/h, says there was nothing wrong with the vehicle, but the road surface was not very good.

Govender said Vorster had taken part in the Tarlton drag races the week before, and successfully completed six quarter miles in the same vehicle.
