Itโ€™s the great South African love story: the nation and their sport. At school, making the first team in any sport is a rite of passage and parents and teachers sacrifice everything for a win and prestige. But now, a new movement is taking root: From the boys of the Eastern Capeโ€™s high-performance Selborne and Graeme Colleges, to the elite Hilton College and girls of St Anneโ€™s in KwaZulu-Natal โ€“ pupils are going from athletes to activists. Harnessing the passion and commitment of sport for causes higher than their own advancement, Carte Blanche meets the exceptional young players who found a way to make the personal glory mean more and, ultimately, create a positive change in the world.

Ours is a country with a deep love of motorsports โ€“ from the first Grand Prix in East London in the 1930s to the iconic Kyalami Circuit in 1993. Icons like Andretti, Lauda, Mansell, Schumacher, and Jody Scheckter raced the Kyalami track with its 60 000 seats and unique atmosphere. Now, the race-obsessed country has been holding its breath as talks resumed to have Formula 1 return after 30 years. Sir Lewis Hamilton, F1โ€™s sweetheart and seven-time World Driversโ€™ Championship title holder, has repeatedly voiced his support to have the race return to our shores. Then there are the fans, like Hammanskraal sculptor Hendrik Chebanga, who has crafted intricate vehicles to celebrate his life-long passion for racing (and for Hamilton). If Formula 1 does return to the continent, it would call Kyalami home. So, what does it take to host this global event, and why did it not work out for 2023? And might there be good news for fans about 2024 with negotiations already underway in London? Carte Blanche explores the reasons it should make a local comeback.
