For one day in November, the CAR Magazine test team and a well-known local racing driver will be based at the legendary Aldo Scribante Race Circuit - just outside the friendly city of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape – putting 11 or so of the country’s most desirable performance cars through their paces for our January Performance issue. You could be there too.We’re offering 25 lucky readers the opportunity to join us at the track, where you’ll get to witness behind-the-scenes goings on, photo-shoots and on-track action for one of our biggest performance issue features ever!

Should you win, you’ll have to get to Aldo Scribante on your own steam. CAR Magazine will host the 25 winners and their partners, and of the 25, two will be selected via a lucky draw to be chauffeured around the track, in the car of their choice from the assembled machinery by our mystery racing driver. To stand a chance of winning, simply answer the following question and send the answers, your name and contact details to [email protected] before Wednesday, October 28. Remember to use Performance Issue in the subject line!
