Drag Wars: Redemption – Date 13th – 15th April 2012
Location – St. Lucia
Event – International Drag Racing
Landmark Events Limited has joined forces with Absolute Promotions and T&T’s AutoSport Promotions Limited, to stage what is turning out to be the biggest International Drag Racing Event in the English-speaking Caribbean. And with over 75 foreign competitors already signed up to do battle, only time will tell who are the best to claim bragging rights over the quarter mile. With two previous events staged in 2009 and 2010, under the Absolute Promotions banner, the Drag Strip being used has already been acclaimed as one of the best locations for Drag Racing, and possibly the top quarter-mile strip that is not a dedicated racing location in the West Indies.
Standards will be held to the extreme as Landmark Events are renowned for promoting some of the best events in this part of the Caribbean. This is their first venture into the Sport of Drag Racing but those in the know would have already experienced their annual and very prestigious St. Lucia Jazz Festival.
The St. Lucia Government will be taking a serious look at this Event, (and yes they are very much involved) and immediately thereafter determine whether there is the potential for this location to be permanently converted into an International Racing facility. Being in a nodal position with the Sea Port, Airport and Hotels being the major factors for attracting overseas /International spectators, this can be an easy sell for focusing on a new niche market for Sport Tourism.
Contingents from Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Kitts and Nevis are already booked. And of course there are the local St. Lucian racers who are intent on showing that they can hold their own against the best in the Caribbean.
As much as 40 competitors may be heading over from T&T. The cars will be shipped on Thursday 12th April 2012.
With spectator participation in the region of 6,000 persons, a diverse schedule of sporting and social activities has been designed to involve a broad cross-section of the national community including patrons, vendors, drivers, sponsors and entertainers. In addition, the presence of renowed engine buider David Vizard seeks to propel Drag Wars: The Redemption into the upper echelon of regional racing.
Landmark Events – St. Lucia’s Premiere Design and Production Company – invites you to the most anticipated Regional Motorsport Event of 2012, Drag Wars: The Redemption.
