#AllStarWeekend to thrill at Dezzi’s

2015-11-12 06:00

KZN Drag Racing’s #AllStarWeekend takes place on 14 and 15 November at the Dezzi South Coast Raceway.

The event boasts 110 drag racers including a 7.8 second rail dragster driven by SA’s fastest woman, Vanessa Fourie who clocked 298 km/h at Tarlton, a 1 350 bhp Escourt “Door Slammer”, driven by Stephan Fouche, and a 8.0 second Corvette “Funny Car” driven by Quintin Fourie.

“We’ve also got the country’s oldest drag racer attending,” said event organiser, Michelle Lewis.

“Reg Murray is 82 and holds three national records in three different categories.”

Murray last competed in KZN 20 years ago.

The drag racing antics will be joined by SA’s top drifters. A full day of stunning sideways action by more than 15 professional drivers will cloud up the original Dezzi drift track. The line-up includes Shane Gutzeit and Paulo Gouveia in their Nissan S15 Sylvia and Nissan S13 respectively.

The biggest park-off the South Coast has yet to see will be hosted by Gas Magazine and Amazing Glaze. Fans can expect to see more than 150 of KZN’s most beautiful rides line the raceway.

A professional dyno, run by one of SA’s top tuners, Steve Clark, will welcome over 80 of the most powerful cars to test their workmanship on the Gutzeit Clark Racing’s dyno.

Joining the action will be SoundLab’s sound-off competition and international trial bike champions, the Le Riche Brothers, will performing two daily shows.

“An accessories exhibition, to rival the best in the country, will run across the weekend and fans attending on Saturday can expect static starts from the rail dragster and the door slammer on Saturday – it’s going to be thrilling,” said Lewis.
