All the thrilling highlights from the 2019 Red Bull Shay’ iMoto spinning competition will air on SABC 1 on 22 August 2020 at 13:30.
The 24-minute doccie, titled Controlled Chaos will give viewers highlights from last year’s action packed event and offer a glimpse into the worlds of some of South Africa’s finest car spinners. The spinning culture in South Africa goes back to the early 1980’s, it was an underground sport at the time, but the industry has in recent years gone mainstream.
The exhilarating art of spinning has grown to be one of the most celebrated motorsport cultures in the country with spinners across all age and gender groups embracing the sport. The first ever Red Bull Shay’ iMoto saw 16 of Mzansi’s high-profile spinners from various parts of South Africa go head-to-head in an intense battle to be crowned the first-ever champion.
In the upcoming Controlled Chaos doccie, South Africa will learn more about the lives of the country’s top spinners such as last year’s runner up and Northern Cape based teenager, Kayla Olifant, soldier by day and spinner by night Tina Cal-lee Rossouw, the entertaining Bad Company trio and the Nigel spinning king – who’s the current Red Bull Shay’ iMoto champion Vernon “Veejaro” Hendricks.
The 24-minute special also features legendary spinners, Magesh Ndaba and Jeff James and last year’s MC Vic Pardal, who not only takes us through the history of spinning in the townships of Mzansi but some of the highlights from the event.
“Spinning is simply the art of trying to control chaos, which is usually uncontrollable,” said Vic when asked to explain what spinning is.
“If you show spinning to your average Joe, they would be mind blown,” he added.
Last year the Red Bull Shay’ iMoto audience was treated to the best spinning stunts in the world such as Kayla’s renowned Suicide Slide and Bad Company’s triple threat action. The doccie will touch on the intricacies of the spinning sport, history of South Africa’s spinning landscape and how it has evolved over the years. The event which local spinners have called “the Hollywood of Spinning” is now the most anticipated spinning competition in South Africa and will be back to crown a new champion at an event which is set to go live later this year.
Catch all the Controlled Chaos this weekend on SABC 1 at 13:30.
