the 'real' event should be the grenada drag event on the 16 & 17th of march,
most of the 'faster cars' would be going to grenada to compete against the fastest the caribbean has to offer (antigua & st kitts) ....so most of the 10 & 11 second cars would be going to st lucia to clock in their 'best times'

currently, hollister edwards aka flambo is in grenada prepping the track for a local event at the end of jan, hoping that the cars can put down enough rubber from now till the event in march... 4 barrels of trackbite are at their disposal to properly prep the track (funded by the gov't) ...wraith can possibly confirm.... but seeing that pearls airstrip has now been confirmed as leased for motorsports for the next 20 years.... this event should be one of three great events for the year....

i can vouch for boost factory's S14 that we will be present at BOTH st lucia and grenada's event.

Looking forward to St. Lucia , its sad when smaller countries and lesser economies have better facilities that right here at home . It says a lot . As for Grenada with no option in Trinidad it was a great location , close enough and well Grenada is a cool and beautiful country . Similar to a rural and long ago Trinidad with nicer beaches :D

Before I say this , please note that you can race at the track you wish to use


However ,there is a serious cross wind at that track . It was not by accident two very stable and very fast machines had incidents there . After speaking with one driver who was involved, for light and fast vehicles in the second 1/8 of the track its very windy and sometimes with a cross wind ,easily destabilizing these machines.

I'm there. What amazed me about St. Lucia last yr was how civilised they drive as opposed to us trinis. Over there you could spot a trini a mile away on the rd.
We rented a terios so slow was our modus. Looking fwd to it again this year. Not a sheit of that boat thing again though. Load up bikes and take a plane oui.. That was d worstttttttttttttttttttttt

From what I understand that are trying to get the fastest cars from most of the islands and they are using 1 boat which will be picking up all the cars at the various islands thats why it is such a small number from Trini. cause we all know you guys could fill the boat with only a day notice lol.

It should be a really good event.

If someone were interested in making more money a second ship should be acquired for the services of bringing those , who for whatever reasons don't make what is the arbitrary "cut" to enter the St. Lucia event .

With local racing in shambles one should see this as obvious .

Now here are some reasons WHY T&T have received limited invites ?

The organiser in reflection to T&T's invitational past has chosen to protect himself by imposing measures to control our participation.

It seems that finally Trinidad's reputation for indiscipline, violent behaviour, and recklessness has presided us. In this case the door has been shut to the previously open invitational s that were granted in the [past by this country.

Let me remind all of you of what prompted this present action, 1 driver was slapped, 1 cuss up the control tent personal, 1 started cuss up everybody on the port with this same event organiser standing there, and last, the karate flying kick to the chest in front police by a prominent racer the has now found God, running around the pits telling all the Trinies not to race because of a misunderstanding, again the event organiser was right there watching him.

Remember our local broker hired by Lucia who did not pay the boat captain, all of you who went almost did not return home, and drivers falsely identified themselves to use hotel rooms to those who did not make the event and even over stayed, hummm who pay for that.

Charity certainly did not start at home and when you leave these shores you want to act like Camden ! It is ashamed that the action of some will make the rest suffer, Grenada organisers are considering tailoring a cut too.

I am not sorry, all these clubs are formed with no disciplinary structure, it seems that others have taken notice and are doing something about it, so until you start behaving yourself, STAY HOME.

One special case driver with who history is questionable was invited because he holds the track record and behaved himself in the last event but will be monitored, a just reward. "I was told." Also....

Mr. Sinister before you start, you and your disrespectful attitude at the start line was even called into question and noted, so this time please do the same and join the bad boy list of non performers.

In all fairness it did hv some bacchanal @ the last event that I personally witnessed.
Who was right/wrong i wont speculate because i dont have all the information. What is sad however is that these fallouts affect those who werent involved.
