There’s no denying the fact that the two drag teams of RCB Racing and Czank Racing have become household names South Africa. And with the influx of street car events and the limited “no-go” for big tyre drag cars, these behemoths are finding it hard to race in events that are predominantly street car-fed, and frankly, something’s gotta give!
But why has it become such an issue? We interviewed Craig Czank and Riaan Meyer who explained their dilemma. If these two are fed up, then surely the rest of the big-tyre SA drag industry is feeling it too. Both teams recently got together and hired a private test and tune day at Tarlton Raceway. We were privileged enough to tag along, and got some awesome behind-the-scenes interviews and action.
