THE quarter mile drag race scheduled to be held today at the Taunovo Airstrip has been postponed to next Sunday.

This was confirmed to Times Sport by Fiji Car Club president Raizal Haniff yesterday.

He said they planned to start their 2014 season with the race but would have to wait another week.

"The Civil Aviation Authority of the Fiji Islands wanted to inspect the airstrip on Monday and they requested us to call off the event this Sunday," Haniff said.

"So, we have adhered to their request and would like to encourage more car enthusiasts, who might have thought this Sunday was a late notice event, to come next Sunday."

Meanwhile, the club is looking for sponsors to assist them with the six events they have planned for the year.

"In the past years we sponsored our own events, and now we would like to get some sponsors on board.

"It would be good mileage for the sponsors, especially if they are car companies or stakeholders of the car/transport industry.

"They can come and market their products at the race."
