Juan Stemmet makes it seem easy. It becomes clear that he knows “quite a bit” about handling when he drifts around a bend, almost weightless and with ease. He was crowned, once again, as the King of Drift Bragging Rights.
To win this title, he faced 15 other drivers and was judged, among other things, on angle, smoke and style.
Drift King Juan Stemmet says it was his first time going out with his new car.
“My car is a Nissan 200 SX, it’s size 13 and 15 up front and yeah! In 2019 we competed in Japan with the car and it was like a huge learning experience and we came back we rebuilt the whole car. And today was actually the first time with the new car and so far I feel great.
Police will deploy more resources to tackle crime in the Northwest:
Despite a big scare when the hood clips on his Nissan 200 SX S13 failed and the hood broke the windshield, Juan Stemmet had two nearly flawless races when it came to winning the Regional Drift King title at Bragging Rights Cape Town.

Drifting is one of the three disciplines of the prestigious Bragging Rights Event. Competitors also show their mettle in spinning and drag racing. There is no stopwatch with frenzied racing cars – two competitors line up, wait for the fire to pass and go.
The fastest competitor wins and speeds of up to 230 km / h are recorded.
Drifting & Spinning bragging rights organizer Raziek Rajah says the sport can be expensive at times.
“You know, some people choose to play with a golf club, some people choose to do crazy things, go sideways at 140, some people choose to go 100 kilometers with their car spinning around. . I guess, you know, we all find some vice in life. It is sometimes a costly vice, but I think it is a vice that does not stop.

Cape Town Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis said safety was the top priority.
“It is important that we provide a safe area, a facility for the sport to take place and for these various events to take place so that we can take it off public streets… We set it up here in a specially designed track and facility. for them. so that fans, spectators can come and enjoy it in a safe environment and that we can really support the growth and popularity of the sport in Cape Town.
There are trophies and cash prizes, yes. But prestige comes with a white cap, which rests only on the heads of racing masters or Drift Kings. And it is worn like a crown as a signal to others of skill and mastery of their craft.
