THE Fiji Car Club will host a Drag War tomorrow at the Taunovo Airstrip in Deuba.

Following two successful quarter mile drags earlier this year, the Drag War is expected to spice up the season.

Club executive Sandeep Prakash said they expected more than 30 cars to compete in the event.

"We had Drag Wars previously and participants and spectators look forward to this event very vigorously," he said.

"Since we had announced for Drag Wars, we had a lot of response for participation and we expect more than 35 participants on Sunday."

The Drag War would have two cars racing side by side on the tracks in various categories.

"This time we will have eight categories — four more than the previous Drag War, including an open diesel category.

"We will be allowing street legal vehicle only with DOT approved tyres.

"The club executives appeal to car enthusiast not to practise street racing and to come and join the Fiji Car Club and show their driving skills on the track rather than on the street where they endanger lives.

Gates will open at 9.15am tomorrow.
