    Default Caravan demolition derbys

    Apparently a while back, at the Dunswart Oval in Brakpan, there used to be an event called, 'Caravan Demolition Derby'. It tweaked my interest, so I did a little write up on it: http://blog.getaway.co.za/events/spo...lition-derbys/

    Does anybody remember this? Are there still events in South Africa?

    Everyone loves a bit of carnage. I think itís in our nature to want to smash (think: naughty activists), or watch something be smashed (delusional pacifists) every once in a while.


    Sad excuse.

    ... ek dink party van hierdie "brekers" het ' paar ernstige skroewe los.

    Ek het nog nooit die begeerte gehad om iets te wil vernietig nie, VERAL NIE 'n woonwa nie - hy moet eerder herstel word as daar fout is.

    So all the Brakpan jokes are true!

    First of all, Dunswart is not in Brakpan, it is in Boksburg, as stated in the (your ) blog. Yes, Dunswart had demolition derbys, but AFAIK that was back in the '70s. They also had sidecar racing and stunts every Friday night. It wwas the highlight of my week when my dad took us to hotrods.

    A good story usually starts with : Once upon a time...
    But in the East it starts with : Check die Move Bra!
