Daniel Pienaar Technical School in Kariega in the Eastern Cape has a proud history as the oldest technical school in the country. And it’s no ordinary school. Set in a small town that’s home to South Africa’s biggest motor manufacturing plant, Daniel Pienaar’s pupils are living their dreams against a backdrop of roaring engines and customised cars. The school is the only one in the country - and one of only three in the world - offering motorsport as an extracurricular activity. It even even boasts its own 4km racetrack and a professional rally team. But it’s not just the boys trading their books for big engines: girls are getting in on the action, too. Carte Blanche takes a high-speed spin on the circuit.
