Speed Promotions Drag Racing: 02.Aug.15

“You win some, you lose some.”

The words of Mr. Frankie Boodram at the Frankie Boodram Wallerfield International Raceway as he applied verbal bandaids to the competitors that didn’t place in the top three of their class at the Speed Promotions Drags event.


Originally carded for 25th and 26th of July 2015, the first drags at Wallerfield in quite a long time suffered blows from low turn out of competitors and spectators- perhaps due to the local banter over the prison break (and the clash with cricket and Autosport’s Drag and Wind), however the event was then extended to August 1st and 2nd- a good move on Speed Promotions part as the extended week brought about almost 3x the initial competitors and spectators and also better weather.


Even though the timing system failed just as the event was getting warmed up grudge matches and bracketed competition runs were executed based on times from Saturday’s qualifying- brackets included 12s-15s and bikes. At the end of the day trophies were presented to the top three drivers of each class along with special trophies and hampers courtesy Total Lubricants.


Speed Promotions would like to thank the Trinidad and Tobago Police and Fire Services, Avatar Ambulance Services, Vigilance Security Services, Total Lubricants, Blue Mountain Waters and Scales and Weighing Equipment Services.
