Petrolheads out in force at Scribante

Michael Kimberley

THOUSANDS of petrolheads raced to the Aldo Scribante circuit in Port Elizabeth for a day of burning rubber on Saturday.

Spectators surrounded the track with camping chairs and braais to revel in the sights and sounds on offer.

As the day progressed, races started in steady succession with the crowd cheering and jeering. More than 1000 cars drove through the entrance gate at a price of R50 a vehicle. Saturday’s drag racing and drifting formed part of a weekend of action with a dyno run on Friday night and spinning yesterday. Winning drivers were more than happy to show off their modified machinery to avid enthusiasts.

Exceptional control was shown by drivers as they hurtled down the track amid clouds of rubber smoke. Some drivers even came from as far as Mossel Bay.
