International Drag Racing Event St. Lucia – Preview

International Drag Racing Event St. Lucia – 26th – 28th April 2013

St. Lucia’s Annual Drag Racing Event “Drag Wars: Retribution” comes off this weekend and will be staged at the dis-used portion of the Hewanorra airstrip, locally referred to as The Base. For those who have been to Drag Racing Events throughout the Caribbean, we confirm that this is currently the best existing quarter mile drag strip, and this without any special development.

For this event the organizers have started from scratch to thoroughly clean the strip, which is openly accessed by all and sundry, including the horses and cows throughout the year. But by Thursday we are assured that Track bite will be laid down and again ensure by the end of this Event, most cars will possibly register their fastest time.

Shipping has been the biggest bug-bear in the logistics that the organizers must address for this type of Event, and finally a T&T Team was able to set sail on Tuesday evening with 21 Cars and three Bikes. Will be interesting to see, out of this mixed team of experience and youth, who will come out with the major bragging rights.

Our very experienced AutoSport Team has once again been invited to coordinate the competition aspect of this Event and we shall also be advising in other areas to ensure a truly successful Event.
