Drag and Wind #2 2013

AutoSport Racing continued in its tradition of hosting another motor sport Event that many considered one of the best in the Drag and Wind(ing) series, at what must now be considered the prime home of Motor Sport in T&T today – the Car Park of the Arima Race Club. Unbelievable but true in this country, and one many consider the richest in the English-Speaking Caribbean!

As the AutoSport-promoted Drag and Wind(ing) Events continue to attract the best combination of Competitors, Spectators and Sponsors, the organizers are starting to see a very interesting trend in performance. Not daunted to stage Events at the compact Arima Race Course Car Park, which incidentally is also home to Karting and Solodex Events, it can be clearly seen that innovative thinking can always surpass any hurdle encountered.

D&W # 2…. The challenge… to run successfully…. without a PA system. The result, an unmitigated YES, successfully completing the full range of competition in all classes, and still having the bonus of competitors freeing up themselves in the fun runs, and the DWO Team celebrating their successes as outright winners in GT3 and GT4 by putting down their own specialty of a free-style display of what drifting is all about.

Finally after nearly 5 years AutoSport was able to stage an event in T&T. This brought many from varying disciplines to participate in one Event – certainly what was hoped to have achieved at the Arima Grand Prix, (and that matter is far from over) and finally getting some relief for many of those who entered that Event and now able to relieve a tiny bit of pent-up racing energy.

‘Bagodex or Tobago Solodex was last held in 2008. The event brought all of the dexterity/defensive driving competition to the laid back landscape of our sister isle Tobago, with great success and a tremendous first showing from the Trinidadian competition. Having skipped 2009, ‘Bagodex 2010 was set to let Tobago’s best answer the call.

With the rainy season in full swing, the heavens decided to smile on Sunday July 18, and bless the fourth Solodex event of the year with a good dose of sunshine. Twenty one competitors came out to take on the Reyos Seebaran designed course, which turned out to be one of the faster courses in recent memory. With everything ranging from a stock Honda Civic sedan to Jody Ali’s monstrous Time Attack Subaru Impreza STi, there was no shortage of action.
