THE Fiji Car Club received a major sponsorship boost ahead of their quarter-mile drag race next week.

Yesterday, Digicel handed over a cheque of $4000 to the club and promised to support them in the future.

Digicel Fiji's head of corporate sales, Dharmend Sharma said the sport had the potential to make it big in the country.

"This is the first time for Digicel to sponsor a Fiji Car Club event and we are delighted to partner with the sport," he said.

Club president Raizal Haniff said the support would boost the Club's bid to increase participation in the sport.

"We welcome Digicel Fiji's kind gesture and thank them for the cash sponsorship of the quarter mile drag race," he said.

"We look forward to this partnership to grow in the future."

Haniff said they were expecting around 40 cars to participate in the event at the Nanuku Aerodome (Taunovo Airstrip) in Deuba on August 10.
