Drag & Wind is ON for this Sunday 13th at ARC!!!

Postby AutoSport » April 10th, 2014, 8:17 pm

Tonight, Thursday April 10th, after much effort, I got a call from the Arima Police indicating that we HAVE a YES to finally run our Drag and Wind event at ARC Car Park, Arima.

As we set off to stage our first D&W event for 2104 on the date for Event #3 (and this shall make interesting reading when the history of Motor Sport is written), we need to make some changes to what was originally planned.

At this time we are now down to eight D&W Events. Our dates are determined after collaborating with other bodies that also use the ARC Car Park. We shall try to see if we can have additional dates later in the year.

We need to ensure that our sponsors are back with us as we move forward.

We do have our full list of competitors from the first Event in January, and shall be honouring the payments made back then, both for Entry and Tent. We would like to get feedback from those who booked tents to confirm that they shall be competing so that we can book their tents.

At this time we cannot have a briefing meeting so we shall have our lists at the gate and your respective passes.

Our prayers are finally being answered, but let us not be complacent!

Yes we shall be taking additional entries, But would really prefer competitors to send a PM or email beforehand so that we can have our competition documents preprinted.

Remember the course is the NEW one that some very lucky people got the opportunity to test out on that fateful day in January. And the classification will be by times. somewhat similar to Drag racing.

Again we are convinced that this shall continue to bring out the best in drivers who are serious about going to the limit and really improving their skills.

Hey Rawle, just wanted to know..........will there be the usual fee still at the gate for general admission (TT$30.00) or are they forcing stupid rules like Solodex and not charging at the gate because that would be "illegal"?

We have walked the plank and hopefully have set the pattern for all parties to now proceed under certain guidelines.

So we shall be charging our grand price of $30.00TT for patrons to enjoy a great day of racing with drivers showing their ability to merge man/woman and machine into a truly winning combination.

Racing was fun today, this is the 1st drag and wind event I've been too. Was really interesting looking at the different cars found in the different classes. The fastest classes had some really interesting cars, not vehicles I would have expected to see..

Really a fun day. My time would drop as I get some more track time with the car. Learning the suspension and the course. First time racer :)

I ran a 56 during qualifying them started adjusting tire pressure and messed up my momentum. Thanks to Devi and Neil for all the advice and assistance

What is short notice? Being advised of Police Permission on Thursday night at 7:10pm?
Having to send out Release 7 to our competitors at approx. 9;00pm on the night of Thursday 10th April, for an event on 13th April?
But note, in 2 days time we were able to attract some 48 competitors and have an incredible day of racing.
And what was the feedback from said competitors? Incredible effort!

We move on....
