The Fiji Car Club Winston Appeal Drag Race was a chance for Suva businessman Tauz Khan to not only to also test out his car but help to also those affected by Tropical Cyclone Winston.

Khan, who drives a NESCA RK7 with a Ford351 V8 engine, was happy to pitch in and help raise funds during the race at Taunovo Bay Airstrip in Pacific Harbour yesterday.

Khan said he had also been to affected areas in Tailevu to distribute food rations such as milk, water, breakfast crackers, noodles, sugar and other supplies to more than 300 families with the help of Deep Water and Suva Lions Club, a volunteer club.

“When I heard about what the Fiji Car Club was doing I obviously jumped at the opportunity to try and help,” Khan said.

“Not only did I get to be part of a charity event but I also have the opportunity to test run my car with the rest of the racers that are here.

“I have seen the damage that the cyclone has done.

“I went out to Tailevu with a group of volunteers to give out food rations to families who need it and it is heartbreaking to see them struggle.

“One thing I have told friends is that you do not have to feed everyone, if we all pitched in to feed one person or family each, thousands around the country would have food and that is something.

“So I am happy that the Fiji Car Club is doing this and even happier that people came out to support the event.”

Meanwhile, Kamal Deo who drives a Datsun 1200, said he wanted to do everything he can to help because he had family in Ba who were affected by the cyclone.

“I really feel for those who have suffered and I want to do my part to help because my family in Ba lost their belongings,” Deo said.

“So I am hoping that whatever is raised will go to the Prime Minister Relief Fund which will go towards helping my family and families around the country.”
