A car burnout on two wheels? Fast & Furious stunt man Didi Bizzarro set to stun Durban this June

Reading Time: 2 minutes

You’ve probably seen a burnout before. But have you ever witnessed a
burnout while the car in question is up on two wheels? Well, that’s the
many mind-blowing stunt that will take place at A State of Stance 2022,
Pavilion Shopping Centre in Westville, Durban on 18 and 19 June.

The driver is international stunt man, Didi Bizzarro. The 38-year-old comes
from a long line of stuntmen (three generations, in fact) and says his
grandfather performed in South Africa as long ago as 1972.

Born in Limassol while his family was on tour in Cyprus, Bizzarro counts
Roma in Italy as his home. He made his first appearance on stage at the
tender age of four before turning professional when he was just 14 years
old. You’ll struggle to find a more experienced stuntman (with a longer
list of broken bones sustained during practice!) than Bizzarro.

So, what else can we expect to see from Bizzarro – who recently lent his
stunt-driving talents to the Fast & Furious 10 as well as 2021
blockbusters House
of Gucci and Red Notice – at the fourth installment of A State of Stance?
Well, he’ll also be drifting, displaying his precision driving skills and
even executing a few tricks on a motorcycle.

Though it’s the latter he finds most exciting, Bizzarro holds a particular
fondness for rear-wheel-drive BMW motor vehicles and counts a modified
M135i among his collection of cars. He also happens to own a race-prepped
E46 M3 (which we suspect goes through tyres like nobody’s business).

When asked about the most rewarding part of his profession, Bizzarro’s
answer is a refreshingly simple one: “The reaction of the crowd”. This
high-octane yet family-friendly event, which is brought to you by VP Racing
Fuels SA, will also include displays of custom-built stance cars, hot rods
and other exciting vehicles, as well as an appearance by the Red Bull Car
Park Drift champions, a thrilling display by SA’s Queen of Smoke Stacey-Lee
May, a sound-off competition targeting 10 world records, an afterparty
featuring artists such as superstar rapper and singer AKA, and plenty more.

Tickets cost R250 per person for Saturday 18 June 2022 and R200 per person
for Sunday 19 June 2022. VIP tickets are R500 for Saturday and R400 for
Sunday. Kids under 10 enjoy free entry while pensioners pay just R150.
