The return of DRIFTCity, the unique Driftkhana style motorsport event took place in Cape Town over weekend. Drivers were met by wet conditions, but skilful driving by Kyle Van Dyk saw him claim victory.
After four days of setting up, DRIFTCity was on, and a little dampness wasn’t going to slow anyone down. The drivers kicked off with determination, gunning for victory from the get-go. The roaring of engines and the screeching of tires ensued.

Spectators weren’t fazed by the drizzle either and wanted to be there when the champion was announced. This vibrant celebration is a fusion of motorsport, culture, and entertainment, making it a must-see spectacle for enthusiasts.
One of the most captivating aspects of the event is its unique location. The Grand Parade in Cape Town, a historic square surrounded by stunning architecture, provides a breath-taking backdrop for the races and festivities.
The drivers competed on a technical course, which needed them to combine speed, smoke, angle, and timing, as well as deal with the rain and wet conditions as they went head-to-head against each other until the emergence of a winner.
