ORGANISERS of the Fiji Car Club quarter-mile drag race are praying for good weather this Sunday.
Unfavourable weather conditions last Sunday forced the organisers to cancel the Digicel Fiji-sponsored event.
Club president Raizal Haniff said racing in bad weather was dangerous and good weather would bring out a lot of competitors and spectators.
"We had to postpone the race in early Sunday morning as the track was damp to race on. We always maintain safety is paramount to Fiji Car Club and so we are now all set to burn the tracks this Sunday.
"The weather outlook for Sunday looks good and will be a perfect day for racing."
With 40 cars already confirmed to compete, Haniff said they were encouraging lady drivers to compete as well.
"We encourage spectators to bring along family members as well.
"Car racing is not only for males and there will be free entry for lady drivers who are willing to race their cars.
"All racers must be members of Fiji Car Club and we are doing this to create more interest among lady drivers.
"Ladies will have two categories: under-2000cc engine and over 2000cc- engine. Also, for the first time we have introduced two categories for diesel: under 2500cc-engine and over 2500cc-engine."
