Autosport Drag+Wind 2: 12.Apr.15

Article by Rawle Mahabir.

AutoSport’s Drag & Wind#2 was successfully executed on Sunday 12th April at ARC. This Event clearly showed that we are getting back into our groove of staging highly entertaining events, smoothly executed to finality, where winners are declared in every Class contested. And this time around final two competitors were able to enjoy racing for a best two in three to determine the winner.

As we always state, this unique event has succeeded in bringing out a host of new young drivers who have been able to move on and successfully compete in higher levels of Motor Sport competition. This we shall continue to focus and build on as we experiment with different concepts in the future.

We saw some first-timers also in winners row, and some “not so first-timers” winning for the first time – never say give up. After two events, when competitors were allowed to change classes and walk with their points, we now move on to the third event, carded for 24th May, when Classes must be confirmed for the rest of the year.

Starting off from launching at the Traffic Lights, we had two competitors recording identical “Best Reaction Times” of 0.004 seconds, first time we have had a tie at the same event, Sponsored by AdON Construction Limited.

And at the top we see a very close battle between some of the best with Nicholas Mooloo recording his second “Fastest Car Of The Day” in two straight Events. But being pushed to third place behind eventual Open Class winner Alistair Rahamut and second place Ajamal Mustapha, who makes that trip from Tobago for practically all D&W Events. And we again congratulate Alistair on his sportsmanship when Ajmal experienced mechanical problems, and waited for some time for Ajamal’s Subaru to be repaired. This did not happen and Ajmal eventually conceded the Open Class win to Alistair.

We shall also be seeing some competition off the track with different “teams” now designing their special jersies for Team members. This has triggered former very outstanding Circuit Driver (and yes he was also successful in competing at D&W Events) Clive Sugden through Consultants and Workover Services to sponsor a cash prize of $500.00 (already paid), for the “Best-dressed Team” at the next D&W Event.
