eNews Channel Africa (ENCA) spoke to some residents who say they have a a hard time dealing with noise from the Killarney Motor Racing Complex in Cape Town during race days and nights.

The row continued as a preferred-to-remain-anonymous motorsport driver and former Killarney chairman ADRIAN PHEIFFER wrote of their perspectives on the problem.

'DID IT BY CHOICE'

Wheels24 reader TINUS POTGIETER had this to say:

Nobody held a gun against any resident's head and forced them to buy a house next to Killarney. They did it by choice.

Watch the eNCA video!

What did they think takes place at Killarney, church services? Why did the City of Cape Town allow residential development to take place in the surrounding area if it knew what occurs at a race track.

City officials are just as much to blame and now they are the ones that are putting up a "red light". Officials should explain this to residents.

As a resident of Richwood, we fought the council with regards to the Du Noon development. We highlighted the risks, sadly to no avail. 

'HOW MANY BRIBES?'

20 years later and the the low-cost housing scheme has turned into a squatter camp. It's obvious the council has no control but they want to stop me if i put up a Wendy house.

Once again, first allow it then complain about it!

It looks like the council should conduct environmental impact studies before doing any approvals, as it seems this was never done. I wonder how many bribes were accepted during the past 50 years to get these developments approved."
