RAVIN Nath once again reigned supreme as he claimed first place during the Fiji Car Club quarter mile race at the Taunovo Airstrip yesterday.
He drove in a time of 9.9s to win the V8 category in windy conditions at Pacific Harbour.
Second was Ravi Nair who finished with a time of 10.75s. He was disqualified in his first attempt for dangerous driving after he failed to control his car after the race.
Tauz Khan finished third with a time of 10.9s. He improved his timing in all three attempts.
Khan said only 23 cars took part in the race because of late announcement.
"We were waiting for the weather to clear and during the week, it was unclear if the race would even take place," he said.
"So we made the announcement on Friday and that is the factor that contributed to a low turnout.
"Usually, we have more than 40 cars participating and over 200 spectators but today (yesterday) we have a very poor turnout."
He said some new cars took part in the race.
"Some new powerful second-hand cars from Japan came to participate.
"Some new racers came with fast cars and recorded fast times but it still was not enough and they have a lot to learn."
Club president Raizal Haniff said their next event would be a Diwali special on November 4.
