Bula fellow car enthusiasts. We are happy to confirm our next quarter mile drags will be on July 24 which is only three weeks away.

We have managed to secure major sponsorship from Lincoln Refrigeration for this particular event.

This is the sixth straight year that Praveen Singh, managing director of Lincoln Refrigeration, has come on board and supported not only the Fiji Car Club but the development of motor sports in Fiji.

It’s a big victory for all car lovers in Fiji to have such an extreme company as Lincoln Refrigeration as sponsors.

I would also like to thank Ravindra Nath, managing director of Pizza King Limited, for helping Fiji Car Club secure this sponsorship.

His not only a champion race driver but also very generous with the time he dedicates to the car club for helping secure such sponsorships.

At the same time, I would like to encourage ALL Fiji Car Club members to follow Mr Nath’s footsteps and assist us in securing more sponsors for future events.

Remember, Mr Nath is not an executive of the Fiji Car Club, yet he dedicates a lot of time and energy in assisting us.

So gentlemen, ladies, get your cars ready.

Our lady drivers, we are again appealing to members and public to allow your wives, girlfriends or partners to race on the track.

When we say race, we do not mean crazy driving but we promote safer driving and testing your driving skills in a contained and secure environment.

Ladies can come and drive any cars. While there are different categories for the men to participate in, for the women, there are no categories and it is just open.

 

Car show

We are still on par to organising our early August car show. We have secured a sponsor for this as well –Global Warehouse Limited will sponsor the event and it will be called Penrite Oils Car Show.

If you become a member on the day of the car show, you will only pay $25 entry fees and for existing members, it will be $40 per vehicle.

You still have more than a month to prepare and we hope this will become one of our biggest events for the year.

I am also encouraging the West car owners to come out in numbers and show the types of cars the Westerners have.
