According to Wikipedia, spinning originated in the Gauteng area of Soweto in the 1980s as black people weren't allowed to take part in racing due to apartheid laws at the time.

Spinning involves driving cars at speed in circles and performing stunts in and out of the car. According to SpeedHunters, the most popular choice of machinery for spinners is the BMW E30 model. They remain a cultural icon but also parts are relatively cheap and accessible and the model features a rear-wheel-drive layout. Spinning is now a recognised form of motorsport.
