THE Dezzi South Coast Raceway in Oslo Beach is a favourite on the SupaDrift series championship circuit.

It has been formally announced that 27 and 28 May mark the first of two event this world-class track will host this year.

The SupaDrift Series, under the auspices of Motorsport South Africa (MSA), is South Africa’s official national championship. Drifting is the fastest growing motorsports code globally and South Africa is following similar trends. Drifting involves the intentional over-steering of cars, which causes a loss of traction in the rear wheels.

Drivers must maintain control from entry to exit of a corner with the intention of gaining style points from judges and spectators. Points are determined by style, drift angle, tyre smoke and noise maintained around a fixed course.

The up-down Dezzi South Coast Raceway roller-coaster circuit layout involves challenging corners and drift techniques and skills will be pushed to the limit.

As the third race of the season rolls closer, drivers will be looking to fine-tune their smoke-churning sideways drifting and get their supped-up cars race-ready in order to cement their positions in the series. Current series and championship leader, Shane Gutzeit, will be attuning his sideways antics to a homeground advantage, but threat is eminent on the drift horizon and local drivers, Paolo Gouveia, and out-of-town hopefuls are making their way to Port Shepstone to dethrone and unsettle the standings.

“We are extremely privileged to partner with the Dezzi Raceway and look forward to being part of the successes and increased popularity of this track,” said Ugu South Coast Tourism’s CEO, Justin Mackrory.

Tickets are available at the door for R80 for adults and R50 for children. For more information visit or follow the series on Facebook SupaDrift Series and Twitter: @SupaDriftseries. - Supplied.
