Is the caption correct? Was it extinguishers only?
I remeber an organization insisting other organizations have fire tenders present.

Why de beatups Banzai - is racing, crashing goes with the territory - glad de driver OK, same goes for Stoute. Quite frankly want to see how dis incident (x2) report gonna go - Promoter (TTASA), TTASA (ASN), TTASA (FIA). It is himself to himself to himself; but wait, we in Trinidad love to pretend conflict of interest doesn't exist. I am amused when you have one body pretending to be impartial, doing 3 things at the same time when each aspect is supposed to be independent of each other to provide proper oversight and direction. Daiz jes common sense.

But what do I know, just another ninja blowing smoke in de wind.

^ the promoter for this event is T&T Petro Gas Ltd. and the competition is run by AutoSport. The marshals were from TTASA, ARA, TTRC and TTKA. Not sure if any marshals were from CARS or TTDA.

Spoke to a Marshall, a fire tender was present but suffered mechanical issues when they attempted to rush down to the vehicle.

Now as a first responder for an event like this, should your vehicle be left running so that in the event of an emergency you can response quickly.


Await response from TTFS since they are paid for a service and have total control in the event of an incident and the promoter HAS to step aside once the emergency response is activated/ initiated....

Wait; heng orn, dunno if I am mistaken but wasn't Petro Gas originally touted as a main sponsor for the event? Guess I heard wrong; my bad. Lewwe put aside that tho, so Petro Gas is another separate independent promoter in addition to Trinidad & Tobago Performance Motorsport Company Limited, but how come on the flyer the names...........unno what, forget that.

From the way you make it sound those are a lot of marshals bai. So if 1 marshal takes part in marshaling within 5 organizations; because it's a shared resource, then that checks as 5 marshals?

Duane I love your attention to dissect into technical fluff and swing it. MWAH! It's PERFECT.

Same here, but it would be interesting to note what time did the incident happen, what time they were paid for and what time they actually arrived. Putting aside them tho, it hadda have some alternate contingencies to pick up the slack.

Either way I glad everybody safe yes and had a time

not swinging anything. The contact names on the flyer are of the same people who run the operations at the track; at the end of the day TTASA are the stewards of the Wallerfield track facility.

Congrats to Marino on the fastest run for the night!

Ahhh apart from all the bachanal in this thread, last night had a lot of potential to be a great event however imho it was pretty much a failure and discouraging. To many issues that had myself and most of the people around me turned off.

^^^^amm no fella, the event was not well put together imo.
from a spectator's perspective firstly there was too much of a lul between runs, no between runs entertainment (music etc), the never ending issue of limited seating/stands, and the parking....
the grandmother of a notorious eastside car thief lives opposite the main spectator entrance so he and his team feed in that dark parking area with limited security.
Allowing cars to park on the left side of the track is always a good idea (dual concrete barriers for safety) since we can drop tray and take in the racing from the back of a van but of course that is only allowed when the general parking area is full...
all in all it made me feel like one of the earlier drag racing events with a lot of teething issues.

Basically that's how it always goes, you would swear it is the first rodeo for the organizers.
