“We have seen the situation of people affected by severe Tropical Cyclone Winston and hence we decided to help them to ease their pain,” he said.
“The money received through the entry fees will be doubled by the club and handed to the Prime Minister’s relief fund.
“We’ll have a drag wars and quarter mile drag race on the day.”
The entry fees for the race is $50 per participant.
Prakash said people who were not members of the club were also eligible to take part in the race.
“One does not need to be a member of the club. All they need to do is to come with the any sort of vehicle for the race,” he added.
“All the safety precautions will be taken with the ambulances on standby because the safety of the drivers has always been a paramount concern for us.”
