Hello fellow car enthusiasts.  The race the past week was a big success.

In fact it was so successful, that we had the highest number of spectators that ever turned up to watch any of our race events.

I am very happy to announce a total of 800 spectators came to watch the event.

Also we had 35 cars which took part in both classes – ¼ mile drag race and the drag wars. The executives have decided that we will as of from now onwards, have both drag wars and quarter mile drag race together.

Our champion race driver, Ravin Nath, again took out the overall fastest of the day with a time of 10.48 seconds.

The second fastest for the day was Sandeep Kumar with a very impressive time of 12.28 seconds. In third position was Imran Haniff with another very impressive time of 13.47 seconds.

The open ladies category was won by Rachna Lal. We encourage more female participation in our future events.

 

Next event

We have scheduled the next event for July 24. This will be again a combination of quarter mile drag race and drag wars together.

We are still looking for sponsors for this event. I request all corporates to come forward and assist the Fiji Car Club to promote safer driving in Fiji.

 

Car Show

I am very happy to announce we have secured a major sponsorship from Global Warehouse – distributors of Penrite Oils – for our next Car Show.

This will be known as Penrite Oils Car Show. We are expecting the general manager, Penrite Oils Australia, to be the chief guest for the event which will be held on August 14.

It will be an honour and privilege for us to have such a high-ranking personnel from Penrite Oils to be present at our Fiji Car Club-organised car show.

As you all know, Penrite Oil is Australia’s leading premium engine oil which concentrates more on motor sports and passenger cars as well.

We will have a lot of giveaways on the day and as expected, a lot of high performance racing oil as gift hampers.

We are still negotiating with the directors of Global Warehouse on the possibility of giving a major prize for the best sports car in Fiji.

This is something to look forward to – so get your cars ready for the event.

A big announcement will be done shortly.

Till we meet again next week, have a safe driving week.
