Earlier this month, Popular Mechanics went on a  journey into the desolate Kalahari Desert. But once there we found more than tumble weeds and sand, we found the Kalahari Desert SpeedWeek. A stew of sports cars, American muscle cars, hotrods and pick-ups graced the event with their 4-wheeled presence. Any vehicle is given the opportunity to take a turn down the 7 km clay track that’s specially prepared for this purpose, whether it’s a 1000 cc superbike or your mom’s station wagon. We took a few photo’s of the one’s that caught our eye.

See some of the aircraft and motocycles that were present at the event, too.
