Group distances itself from N2 car spinners caught on film

It could be the end of the road for the traffic officers who allowed a few petrol heads to spin their cars on the N2 just outside the Peregrine Farmstall recently.

On Wednesday Western Cape Traffic chief Kenny Africa told Kieno Kammies the officers involved would be dealt with in the scrictest way possible.

Now it turns out that the petrol heads were part of the SA Torque Cape Town Breakfast Run.

The organisers wrote a response in which they explain how events unfolded.

"...we as an organisation do not encourage such driving. In past breakfast runs we have seen the odd "hooligan" do some showboating which we confront the individuals about as it gives our brand a bad name and is 100% not what we are about.

An application was not made as the breakfast run is not about closing down roads to allow the odd person the opportunity to "spin". The actions of the drivers who did doughnuts and the traffic officials involved were 100% actions taken and made by themselves without any prior discussions nor consent with myself or anyone else from SA Torque.

The "spinning" was most certainly not done for filming purposes. Unfortunately, due to the fact that so many people had their camera phones out and some amateur film enthusiasts pitched up who captured footage to create content for themselves, this tends to draw out the show-boaters."
