Watch the last leg of the drag race as the battle will be between Ravin Nath and Roy Singh, says Fiji Car Club president Raizal Haniff.

More than 60 cars participated in the fifth series of the Pacific Energy Drag Race at the Nanuku Airstrip in Pacific Harbour, Deuba yesterday.

Speaking to SUNsports Haniff said both drivers are aiming for a good finish.

“We’re heading into the end of the season with one more race to go on December 5, so we’re hoping that more cars will join us,” he said. 

“Ravin Nath won the last race with a time of 10.2 seconds and leads the table heading to the end of the season.

“Rookie Roy Singh is giving the old man a good run for his money and is closing in on him. 

“All that depends on the last series in December.”
