CLOSE to 50 cars are expected to participate in the Fiji Car Club Car Show on Sunday in Suva.

It will be the first car show of the year and organisers are confident of a good turnout judging by the response at the last event.

Club president Raizal Haniff said car enthusiasts had been asking for a show for a very long time.

"After a successful event last year, we decided to host two car shows this year," he said.

"And car enthusiasts have been calling and asking for a long time for one and so we have organised one.

"Last year 37 cars participated and this year, we expect a bigger number, somewhere around 50."

The event received a boost when two corporate bodies stepped up to sponsor the event that would be held on level two of the Suva Handicraft Centre.

"We thank Cheaper Rentals and LB Masters for sponsoring the event and their support is much appreciated.

"There would be prizes up for grabs in 16 categories and one of the main categories is the Golden Oldies in which cars from the '80s would be on display."

Meanwhile, the Digicel-sponsored quarter-mile drag race has been scheduled for August 10.
