Cape Town - An unlikely drag race saw a modified Nissan Champ bakkie take on a Honda Civic Type R at the Killarney raceway in Cape Town on Saturday (October 29).
After pulling away, things went horribly wrong for the Champ driver, according to a professional driver Ernest Page who was the race organised by Motorsport South Africa.
The Nissan Champ suffered a broken driveshaft that sent the bakkie careering side-ways.
The bakkie veered into the path of the Civic causing the driver to slam on the brakes to avoid a nasty crash.
The clip below shows how close the two vehicle came to colliding on track.
We're glad there was no damage and both drivers walked away unscathed.
