G+A Promotions was started in 1992 by Gunter
and Abie Drotschie. This dynamic father and
son team saw a potential gap in the South African
Motor Sport supply market after they found
it extremely difficult to source correct-fitting
race wear for their own use. Once all the special
fabrics and machinery were sourced - their
humble beginnings started in a small garage
G+A Promotions big boost came a few months
later when they signed a long term agreement
with FIRST RACE, which is part of the AUTOQUIP
G+A Promotions have been manufacturing and solely
supplying FIRST RACE with all there locally manufactured
race gear for
the past 12 years and the "marriage" between these two companies is
expected to continue for a very long time.
Other than its new modern race
shop , G+A Promotions has been actively involved
for the past 10 years in buying, selling, importing
and exporting new and used race cars and parts.
Another big milestone in G+A Promotions history
is the long term contract signed between them
and NA CARRERA in 2004. NA CARRERA race slicks
are manufactured in Cordoba, Argentina and is
the leading brand used in South America. With
this agreement in place and currently 1000 racing
tyres in stock, G+A Promotions and its country
wide dealers offer a very affordable, excellent
quality race tyre.
G+A Promotions has grown
from a 'only race suit
manufacturer' into one
motor sport supply companies in South Africa. Currently the company employees
staff at its 750 square metre business premises and has 25 imported racing related
for motor sport application.
have purchased a variety of ex-works Touring
cars/team packages that competed in the South
African Touring car championship. A few
of these cars have succssessfully been exported
to countries like Trinidad and Costa Rico.
Because of G+A Promotions' worldwide contacts,
they also offer a service to source any
that is motor sport or non-motor sport related.
Both Gunter and Abie have a huge motor sport passion and still run there company
with a very active involvement in motor sport, they currently race a V8 race
car competing in regional motor sport and also run a V8 Gymkhana/Drift car. Both
these high performance cars are used as test equipment for the variety of racing
related products G+A offer to there clients.
