No potholes, cobblestones, or unfinished bridges could stop the Potjie Boytjies team from winning the Red Bull Box Cart race.
The colourful streets of the Bo-Kaap were brightened with cheer on Sunday November 6 when 22 000 spectators attended the global non-motorised Red Bull Box Cart Race in South Africa.
The event had over 50 interesting teams with the most peculiar concept carts attempting to go down the racetrack in the fastest time. Teams included “The Flintstones”, “Max Speed”, “Morning Glory”, “Filions”, “Phala Phala Bank”, and team “Dala What You Must” headed by South African comedian Jason Goliath, just to name a few. Ultimately, it was Cape Town’s Potjie Boytjies that reigned supreme.
