WHEN it comes to car racing in Fiji, Ravin Nath's name is on almost every racer's lips.
Rightfully though, Nath has been dominating the tracks locally for almost 10 years and looks good to do so in years to come.
The veteran racer and owner of Wishbone and Pizza King, on Sunday, won the Fiji Car Club quarter mile race at the Taunovo Airstrip to add another silverware to his trophy-laden cabinet.
He lost to upcoming racer Ravi Nair in the previous race after some mechanical problem in his car.
"For the past nine years, nine months, I have been holding the Fiji record which is about 22 races and then the race before (Sunday) I lost because of some problems in my car," Nath said.
"My record stands at 9.75 seconds. I clocked 9.92s on Sunday and I'm happy to be the only one in Fiji to drive under 10s."
For Nath, racing started as a hobby and over the years it has grown to become a part of his life.
"It started in 1991 when I was introduced to the sport by my good friend Tauz Khan," Nath said.
"I used to take my daughters to the pony club and he also used to bring his daughters and there he invited me to take part in a race that same weekend in Lautoka.
"At first I was like 'no, no I can't' but he insisted so I accompanied him. I had a Toyota Celica 1.6 that time which I used in the (racing) competition."
Now a proud owner of super fast car Holden Torana, registration C MEGO, Nath is looking for more wins in the future.
"As far as my health is good, I will keep racing," Nath who is in his 60s added with a smile.
