The event was held at Kyalami go-kart track and there were an array of vehicles on from KE70 Corollas to Lexus is 200’s 20v chisel conquests a import RunX and fwd Levin and last but not least a supercharged chisel.
It was the usual hot summer’s day in Johannesburg and with all the beautiful Toyotas on display it was an awesome gathering of friends. Our chairman Thags Govender announced his retirement from the club but he will remain as an honourable club member to show the new guys the ropes. The new chairman Jamey Brinkhuys was introduced and we wish him all the best. We also heard that Toyota bought Subaru and we would like to welcome them as part of the family.
The car that won car of the year is owned by Megan Naidoo. It’s an imported Runx RSI with a superb looking kit and rims that sits perfect in the wheel wells, it really looks as if it was made to sit in there. There are plans to turbo the car but I don’t want to say too much now as there will be a full feature on the car done on the website later this year.
The other cars that really caught everyone’s eyes was the turbo 20v owned by Desigan Perumal and it’s a real sleeper of note the only thing that really gives it away is the front mount intercooler and the install was done really superbly. Then there was the silver avante of Pieter Mostert and all I can say is wow you can really see there is a lot of time and love that went into the car as it looks brand new and the kit really makes it uber hot. There are plans to drop it with another 20mm in the front to get it to sit super flush with the wheels. Thanks to all that came through to the event and remember to come to our club events then we can check out your ride and get it featured as car of the month.
Well that’s it from me I will let the pictures do the talking. Slide show below or view the full gallery here.
