Fiji Car Club invites overseas drivers to rally

FIJI Car Club wants overseas drivers to compete in the Pacific Energy-sponsored Quarter Mile Drag Race on November 12 at the Nanuku Airstrip at Pacific Harbour.

Club executive Sandeep Prakash said they wanted to expand the competition to take car drag races to another level in the country.

"We had participants from New Zealand who competed in the race and the group runs a performance shop in New Zealand with a name of NS Spec," he said.

"They were impressed with the level and the organisation of the race. The people from overseas can take part, but they need to have valid driving licences and they need to be a member of the Fiji Car Club. They will pay race entry fees and follow all requirements.

"We are encouraging more overseas drivers to take part in our races. They can bring their vehicles or they can race with vehicles which are in the country."

Prakash said the future for the sport looked bright.

"We have noticed that the participation numbers have increased compared to previous years. It shows that Fiji Car Club is heading in the right direction in terms of the drivers who are competing with the spectators as well.

"It would be our fifth race of the year even though we started late with the race since it started in July.

"The executives are working hard to see that we have seven races for this year. There have been different winners in the races with Lawrence Ah'Sam and Ravi Nair winning the last race.

"He is back in racing and it shows the competition is very high and people are taken to the limit."
