Killarney Race Track
a feast for senses of the speed freaks
Watch the speed freaks tear up the tar at Cape Town’s Killarney Race Track.
The Killarney Race Track is in Tableview, about 30km (18 mi) from the Cape Town city centre. It was first used for racing in 1947 and the track was rebuilt in 1959-1960 to conform to the standard required for the 1500cc Formula One cars of the time.
The track is the home of Fantastic Racing, a company which offers the opportunity to learn how to handle a super-charged Reynard single-seater race car around the circuit.
The Fantastic Racing outing is ideal for individuals, corporate events, entertaining, networking and team building or for anyone wanting a day to remember. The experience is designed for maximum enjoyment and the events team is on duty to ensure that all participants have a memorable half or full day out. Event packages start from R2 900 (excluding VAT) per person. For more information visit www.fantasticracing.com.
The track is open from Monday to Friday from 08h30 to 17h00. Opening times change when racing events are being held over the weekend. Call Killarney to check on track opening times at +27 (0)21 557 1639. Karting and short-circuit races are also held at the track. Fantastic Racing also offers corporate karting events in 275cc go-karts.
The club house includes a restaurant that remains open on days when there is no racing. The track is also available for hire for functions and film shoots, so you might just find yourself becoming an extra in a movie!

WaveJet’s are battery powered boards with jet propulsion allowing you to cruise around in the water at a touch of a button. Surfing on a WaveJet is easier because of the stability and forward motion of the board. It also allows you to catch so many more waves by not having to paddle out. Just push a button on your bluetooth wrist controller and let the WaveJet do the work for you. All you need to do is just enjoy riding waves.
Had the chance to drive a Reynard at Killarney in April '09 and lived every minute of the day. Everything from the tuition to the track was excellent. Fantastic Racing even took the names of each driver and produced a sticker with name and nations flag (I'm from the UK) and applied it to your allocated car. I've been involved in karting for many years, but to have the chance to step up and drive one if these powerful single seat Reyanards (think US Indy car!) was awesome. This is definitely high on my "To Do" list next time I'm back in the Mother City!!
