An Automotive Eid at Barakah Grounds

An Automotive Eid at Barakah Grounds

When one thinks of Eid, thoughts of prayer, fasting and sharing delectable East Indian delicacies with friends and family comes to mind. I have never had the privilege of seeing a drift and motorbike stunt show promoted at Eid celebrations before.

This year, 2019 was my first experience of this sort. The Barakah Grounds in Chaguanas, became alive. After a morning of prayer and reflection hundreds of our Muslim brothers and Sisters had the honour of seeing one of their own sons, Yaseen Sidat aka Yaseen Stuntboss and his stunting friend, Mad Max perform things on their bikes that one can only dream of.

They were joined by drift cars from Marztech Racing who added more excitement for the spectating crowd. The crowds grew as the Master of Ceremony, Mr. Inshan Ishmael got on the microphone and invited persons who were working nearby and passing by to join in the festivities. The smell of the burning rubber, the roar of the
engines thrilled the kids and adults that were engrossed with the action taking place in front of them.

Needless to say, it was all about family, entertainment and community spirit. Can’t wait to see what 2020 has to offer!
