If you have been wondering why there have been so few events at Wesbank Raceway, the answer has arrived. As of January 2008, Wesbank Raceway will be no more. The track was taken for a mouth watering R130 million by Pangbourne Properties who will be the land developers of the light industrial park that will replace the super motorsport complex.
It will be a big chunk out of the growth of motorsport in South Africa. Wesbank has hosted many of the countries biggest events including the likes of Ultimate Street Car, the Finals of the National Drag Racing Championship and the countries largest Illegal 2 Legal drag racing on wednesday nights.
For those of you who have not visited Wesbank or even just being apart of the 5000 odd crowd who attend the wednesday night racing, I advise you to do so before you loose the opportunity to.
Over the next few months I will fill a topic on the z00pedup forum with pictures and memories we have had at Wesbank over the years.
