North vs South

The North vs South Drag Racing Championships presented by Speed and Sound is back!

The first round will be at the Rhino Park Airfield on 27th October, 2019, and the event features No Prep heads-up Drag Racing. The day will also include round 3 of the Street Kings Car Audio competition, Show and Shine park-off presented by JHB Parties, and a live DJ!

The event has a rich heritage behind the name. It was first introduced by Speed and Sound, Yokohama SA and Castrol SA in 2005 and was hosted at every drag strip, track, airfield, and street across the country in all the major cities. As cars got quicker, North vs South fell away for the more popular Sport Compact Series which became the preferred playground for many competitors.

The first event will be at Rhino Park Airfield, located just 28-minutes east of Pretoria.  A limited number of entries will be enforced due to the capability of the venue’s airfield. 60 cars will only be allowed to compete and entries will open here on the September 1st. The event brings you side by side racing action from just about every type of genre in drag racing featuring the top cars from Gauteng. Safety rules for driver and car will be strictly enforced. Please visit the the link to review these safety rules.


The third round of the Street Kings Challenge will see the country’s loudest vehicles compete for honours. Attracting some of the biggest car audio brands in South Africa, the competition allows the up and coming newbies to compete on a more competitive level. Entries will be allowed on the day at R200 for two runs. On hand will be leading car audio installers that will offer advice, assistance and setup. For rules and classes, please visit Lanes open at 10am, entry cutoff is at 2pm, and the lanes close at 4pm sharp.
