So, after the very long and eager wait, Toyota SA has released local prices for the much anticipated 86 sports coupe that will be launched here from July 9, 2012. With something with this calibre and this much heritage you’d expect quite a hefty price tag right? Think again…
Petrol heads like myself will be rather spoilt for choice this coming weekend as we prepare for one jam packed weekend of Motorsport and Events. Whether you’re a South African citizen or a gear-head from abroad, you best get your diary out and plan accordingly, because this one is going to be crazy!
So, 7 races completed…7 different winners; It’s difficult to describe and sum up the 2012 F1 season thus far. We’ve seen victors, we’ve seen losers…we’ve seen technical wizardry as well as freak fires…and more importantly, we’ve seen past champions defend their honour, and new ones begin to emerge. What else could possibly lie in store for us over the coming months?

Many of you may already know this, but for those that don’t, tomorrow is yet another round of Regional Full Circuit racing at Killarney Raceway…the home of Motorsport in the Mother City. I’ll be there as usual…talking to the guys, snapping some pics but also sussing out the future competition!
The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento was first seen at the Paris Motor show in 2010, and is a no-nonsense, ultra-exclusive rendition of one of Lamborghini’s all time greats, the Gallardo. With striking looks and jaw-dropping performance, it’s one of the Italian Supercar makers finest achievements yet, and definitely one of my all-time favourites!
This coming friday, 1 June 2012, Killarney Raceway Cape Town will be hosting yet another episode of their highly successful open drags event…Street 2 Strip. This edition promises to be one for the history books, as both The Gear Shift’s and Raceweb.co.za’s Mascots take to the Drag strip for some 400m action.
