April next year will become a petrolhead’s dream when 60 exotic cars leave the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit on a 1 300 km tour of the country – including a track day at Dezzi Raceway on the KZN South Coast.
OzowDR23 will kick off at Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit on April 27, where entrants road will take to the tarmac for day one’s fast-paced track day. From there the supercar convoy will head east for an Afrika Burn inspired launch party and overnight in the Drakensburg, ahead of day two’s convoy to Umhlanga where some of the world’s most prestigious automotive rivalries will be settled at a high-profile gymkhana like no other.
Day three sees another grip-seeking, aero-testing, limit-pushing track day, this time at Port Shepstone’s Dezzi Raceway, before some respite for both man and machine on the fourth travel day – by private charter to Hoedspruit, of course.
Air Force Base Hoedspruit and its 3,9 km asphalt runway, together with the beautiful backdrop of Kapama Private Game Reserve, provide an ideal venue for high-speed test runs on day five, with OzowDR23 wrapping up with a Sabie hillclimb and ‘Go Hard or Go Home’ prizegiving party in Nelspruit on May 2.
While the OzowDR23 supercar entry list is yet to be confirmed, an ultra-valuable assortment of exotic machinery including rare Lamborghinis, Ferraris, McLarens, Aston Martins, Porsches and Paganis – some with values approaching R100-million – is expected based on past event participation.
Aside from the competitive elements behind the wheel, entrants will identify charities of their choice and challenge each other to raise the most money by the end of the rally.
Automated EFT specialist and title sponsor Ozow will develop and facilitate an easy payment system with unique smartphone scannable QR codes applied as decals to each team’s supercar. Teams are encouraged to support their charities through donations from associates and members of the public along the six-day journey.
