West cars to take part in second event in Deuba

THE Fiji Car Club is expecting more than 40 cars to participate in their second event of the year.

The quarter-mile drag race will be held today at the Taunovo airstrip in Deuba and 35 car owners have already confirmed their participation.

Club executive Sandeep Prakash said some cars from the Western Division were also expected to feature in the race.

"The club had a very successful event earlier in the year with 30 cars participating and around 1000 spectators," he said.

"We currently have confirmation around 35 cars to participate on Sunday (today) from which six to seven are from the Western Division."

Prakash urged car enthusiasts to bring their family to the event to enjoy the day in a different manner from their normal Sunday routine.

"We would like to encourage people to come down and have a family day out as they can bring their own barbecue sets and tents for shelter as there will be a lot of rooms available for this.

"We at the same time would urge drivers to show their driving skills whilst at the track rather than on open roads where pedestrian safety is of concern."

Prakash is hoping good weather would prevail today after the first event of the year had to be postponed to a later date rather than their normal schedule because of heavy and persistent rain.
