As you may have known TTPS Northen Division has stopped the following events.
12th Jan (ARC) - ARA Drag & Winding #1. - citing the following reasons ( permission from the North Eastern Division to break the speed limit, EMA approval, Insurance (which the event has) but still allowing timed fun runs.
26th Jan (Lennox Yearwood Expressway) - Arima Grand Prix - Reason given: crime risk hotspot. Still allowed runs but inside the Larry Gomes stadium carpark.
9th Feb (ARC) - TTKA #1 - Reason given: crime risk hotspot. Armed police said nothing will take place.
Since 12th January we have been trying to find out what is needed to continue having events. CARS has necessary permissions and insurances, and Arima not being in a curfew (even though CARS has had events during the last S.O.E. which were ended at a time allowing all to not break the then curfew), and other tenants are allowed the enjoyment of their properties during the hotspot period (Soca Monarch in Arima Velodrome on the 9th Feb at 7pm, and ARC horse racing on Sat 8th Feb at ARC). Including the bars and other businesses which also remained open.
CARS also successfully held it's BYCC and driving school on the 2nd February.
In light of all this, and not as an act of defiance, but rather doing something lawful................
CARS is holding it's first competition event for 2014 on Sunday 9th March at ARC Santa Rosa.
