Hello fellow car enthusiasts. What a car show it was. It was a proud moment for us to host Fiji’s biggest car show event the Saturday. We had 750 spectators attending.

Not only this, but a record number of 42 cars took part. All the executives of the Fiji Car Club were hyped up on Saturday as we hosted this biggest car show.

Fiji Car Club has come a long long way in terms of holding events and the car show has proved to be the biggest crowd puller out of all our events.

But in saying so, we had 680 spectators in the past race. So I am hoping in the next event which will be on August 28, we will beat the spectator number that we had at the car show.

I take this opportunity to thank the Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism, Faiyaz Siddiq Koya, for taking his time out and gracing our car show.

Also acknowledge the attendance by Investment Fiji chairman, Truman Bradley.

Also I would like to thank Tony Lawton, Penrite Manager Asia and Pacific, for coming from Australia to officiate the event.

Also thanks to Hazeem Hussein, the managing director of Global Warehouse, who are distributors of Penrite Oil in Fiji, for coming all the way from Labasa to be a part of the event.

And finally, I would like to thank all the participants who came and become part of the event. A special mention to all the people who came from the Western Division and participated.

Remember, we organised this event on a Saturday in order to allow members from the West to participate. We hope to get even more participation in future events from our Western members.

 

More plans

Our next event will be held on August 28. This will be once again under our new-adopted racing format which includes both quarter mile drag race and drag wars together.

As I always mention – I would like to encourage female drivers to participate in our events as well. Remember racing for females is free as long as you are a member of Fiji Car Club.

We will be having another five events this year. We will have another car show towards the end of the year.

Another exciting news is we are working hard to get approval from the relevant authorities to secure a public road in the West for us to race on.

Currently there is no race track in the Western Division and thus limiting our racing capability to only Pacific Harbour.

We should be able to give more details by next month once we have received all the correspondence from the relevant authorities.
