Kevin Hepburn’s Legend Racing hosted the drivers from different disciplines just outside Benoni on a short circuit track. Although their backgrounds in racing are quite varied the resulting facial expressions after driving the Legends cars were virtually identical, a resounding “yes” after the experience.

The Legend car is probably most easily described as the step between karts and cars if you were looking to pigeon-box them. The three quarter sized cars are deceptively fast despite having just a 1300cc engine. The secret lies in the fantastic power to weight ratio with the cars weighing in at a mere 501 kg.
