The Lincoln Refrigeration sponsored Drag Race recorded the highest number of women drivers at Nanuku Aerodrome in Pacific Harbour yesterday.

Seven female drivers participated in the biggest race organised by the Fiji Car Club involving 42 cars.

Club president Raizal Haniff said they are delighted to have a good turnout by women in a sport mostly dominated by men.

“We had seven females which is the biggest we have ever had so far,” Haniff said.

“Seven might seem like a small number to others but in our sport, that is big.

“We are hoping to attract more because we don’t want the sport to be strictly for men.

“By the end of the year we hope to attract 10 female drivers and while that might seem like a lot, we are certain that we can get those numbers judging by the female fans attending.

“It was a very successful and busy day for us and we are glad with the turnout and hoping the interest from the public, both men and women, will grow.”

Veteran racer Ravin Nath took out the title yet again clocking 10:29seconds.

The next event will be the Car Show which is scheduled for August 13 with judges coming from Australia.

Meanwhile, Lincoln Refrigeration Limited managing director Praveen Singh will sponsor the Drag Race for another year.
