The Fiji Car Club’s Western Car Show held on Saturday proved to be a big hit with over 30 cars participating and showcasing a range of vehicles.

Not only was the participation strong from the Western Division. But also a number of car enthusiasts drove all the way from Suva to be showcase their vehicles.

Fiji Car Club president Raizal Haniff said they were happy with the turn out at the Namaka Public School in Nadi.

The paying spectators reached to over 250 which was indeed a great turnout, Mr Haniff said.

Also a surprise visit was paid by the Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Faiyaz Siddiq Koya, who takes personal interest in bikes and cars.

Mr Koya was in Nadi for other official purposes but upon seeing the Car Show was on, decided to pay a visit himself.

He said it was good to see the enthusiasm people had in their vehicles and to see the Fiji Car Club organising such events in the country.

 

FCC commitment

This was the time for the Car Show to be held in the West in two decades. Mr Haniff reiterated that the club was not only for the people of the Central Division but all off Fiji.

“We have decided to bring it to the West so that those in the Western Division get a good opportunity to become aware on what we do,” he said.

“Car shows are for those who don’t necessarily spend a lot of money on the engines but do nice paint work and put nice wheels to shine their car.”

Mr Haniff said they will try to bring a race event to the West next year if they are able to secure a road for the race.

 

Participant

Young businessman Mohammed Suhayb came all the way from Sigatoka with his brother to be part of the event.

“This is a good idea to have such events in the Western Division to meet with other brothers who are more into cars,” he said.

He owns an Orangesh Pink colour Toyota Sera which was his birthday gift he received in 2005.

“I did the interior set up last year with the paint done this year,” Mr Suhayb said.
