Only the fastest in KZN set for drag showdown at Dezzi Raceway

The fastest cars in KwaZulu-Natal will descend on Dezzi South Coast Raceway for Saturday’s Gas Magazine Drag Invitational.

The weekend’s event will be the first of its kind as it’ll only feature dedicated drivers on #thelist.

Gas Magazine and KZN Drag Racing have compiled a list of the fastest cars in several classes based on official results.

#thelist is essentially a ranking system aimed at both boosting competitive and revving up the standard of drag racing in the province.

These drivers will duke it out in invitational events for bragging rights in their respective classes, with the top competitors then going on to fly the KwaZulu-Natal flag against renowned racers from other provinces.

“We’re very excited about #thelist – it’s interesting, it’s different and there’s a lot of hype around it. By going this route, we’re motivating drivers to start building cars that are competitive nationally,” Yash Ori from Gas Magazine told eHowzit.

“Let’s shake things up a bit and let everyone know who are the fastest. It’s about time we give them the overdue credit.”

She added: “Drivers who haven’t had the opportunity of getting onto the list because they have other commitments or their cars are broken or they haven’t had a car in years, whatever the case may be, will have a chance of getting on the list when they return.

“To do so, they have to be based in KZN, have cars built for one of the classes and have proof of previously recorded times.”

Racing is set to get underway at 9am. Entrance is R60 for adults and free for kids under the age of 12.

Clinton Myburgh from B & C Motorsport ran a 10.06 at the last drag and will be back in action on Saturday.
