THE Fiji Car Club is aiming to host three more events by the end of this year.

Last year, the club hosted only five events but this year they have hosted six already.

Club president Raizal Haniff said the interest had increased in not only car races but car shows as well.

"Since the interest is there, we should increase competitions to increase participation," he said.

"That is why we have decided to host maybe three more events by the end of this year."

Haniff said they had not set a date but expected the next event to be held by the end of next month.

Meanwhile, it was Ravin Nath that once again triumphed in the Digicel Fiji-sponsored quarter-mile drag race last Sunday.

The event was initially scheduled for August 9 but had to be postponed to August 15 because of bad weather.

Nath's car, CMEGO, finished with an overall time of 10.10s to push Lawrence Ah Sam's (Thunderbolt), time of 10.773s to second place.

Tauz Khan with his car MOOVIT finished third in a time of 11.10s.

Overall in the under 4500cc category, Nick Ragg with DT982 finished first in a time of 11.247s, Vicky Nath, with 1BAD7S was second in a time of 12.610s and Sashi Autar with GOTAGO was third in a time of 13.869s.

Also, Saten Prasad set a new national record in the all-wheel drive category with 11.208s.

He beat previous record holder Khalid Samad's time of 11.98s which was set five years ago.

Four lady drivers also competed in the event and Haniff said they would like to see more lady drivers compete.

"We would like to thank all the car owners, drivers and also Digicel for making the event a huge success."
