Interesting Drags Anticipated With Ravin Nath Expected To Make Comeback

Hello fellow racers. Sunday should be one of the biggest race the Fiji Car Club has ever seen.

As you are all aware, the champion driver of Fiji was beaten by his nephew, Vicky Nath, in the last race.

We should expect fireworks towards the end where we will determine who will be the champion of the Pacific Energy Shell Lubricants Drags Seasons.

We are not counting Lawrence Ah Sam out. We should expect a better timing from him. Mr Ah Sam took out the third overall in the last event.

Fiji Car Club has decided that it will include a new category which will be LPG cars.

We will only have this category if we have more than four LPG cars taking part.

FCC will now allow bikes to take part again provided we have more than four bikes taking part. For bikers who will be taking part, do note we will only allow bikers who have full race suits on.

Also we would like to remind all those taking part that categories like Open Diesel, Hybrid under 2000cc and over 2000cc and also the new LPG category, you will not only be competing in your own class, but you can also register in seconds class categories.

Also note it is imperative that you dial in upon registration your preferred seconds class to race in or after your first run, you will need to dial in your time.

If this is not done, you will not be entered in any class to race in.

 

Spectators

We would like to again remind all spectators who will be coming tomorrow to please listen to the instructions of Fiji Car Club executives or the security guards present.

There will be a number of changes as far as spectators entry is concerned.

We will now allow spectators to be standing on both sides of the tracks. If you are a member and if you are bringing your car inside the arena, please choose the side of the track you would like your car to be parked on.

This decision by Fiji Car Club to have spectators to be on both sides is for safety as we will not allow anyone to stand beyond 60 feet of the track.

We will have security guard at the event and they will not hesitate to remove spectators or members if they fail to follow instructions.

Like I had said in many of my interviews, safety is paramount and we will not compromise on this.

Race entries

Again please note we will not accept any entries after 11am. 11am will be the close off time for all race entries. We urge participants to come on time so we can start the race on time.

Again just as on the last event, we will try and finish off the rounds of the competition early as we will have to finish off the race by 4.30pm as we have a plane landing right after. Also we will not allow spectators to be standing where all the race cars are lined up. All spectators will need to be in the tent provided to watch the race.

Each race car will be allowed to have only support staff beside each car.

We have noticed in the last race, there was a lot of congestion in the rear where the race cars are parked. This prevented race car drivers to quickly line up and thus causing delays.

Also we wish to invite lady drivers to come and take part in tomorrow’s event. Racing if free for lady drivers but you need to be a member of the Fiji Car Club.

I would also like to remind those travelling down to Pacific Harbour tomorrow to drive slow and be within the speed limit.

I hope to see you and your family at the tracks tomorrow.

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