BMW Owners Association (BOA) convoyed to a car spinning event that took place in Atlantis outside of Cape Town.

The main purpose of the event was to lift the stigma and raise awareness about the E30 model; in townships across the country, the 'Gusheshe' as  it is knows, is associated with crime and hooliganism.

Claimed to be one of the fastest cars in its time, it became used as a getaway car in most robberies, but the since then faster cars were created. Yet, the stigma still exists and people driving this model, especially in the townships, are still associated with it.

The aim of BOA is for the young to change their perception about this model and see it as any other car driven by an ordinary citizen.

The battle began and the spinners entertained the crowd, fighting to win the hearts of the people. The hot contest was between the Paarl spinners and local boy Shandre Green, better known as Flakka from Atlantis.

By the end of the event, most people were impressed by Flakka’s spinning skills saying he is their best spinner, well… others had different views but the majority will always rule.
