Green light for drag racing this weekend

Drag racing featuring cars from across the Caribbean will be on display this weekend at the North Sound International Raceway.

Lisa Abraham, former President of the Antigua & Barbuda Drag Racing Association, told OBSERVER media yesterday that everything is in place for a thrilling show.

“All of the cars are here. St Kitts & Nevis cars will be leaving the port momentarily,” she said.

“Automotive Arts is setting up, CPR Equipment is setting up, the drinks people are setting up because you know that gates open today [Friday] at 5 o’clock.”

Confident of the arrival of drivers and vehicles from St Croix, Abraham said, “St Thomas charters came in yesterday so some of the drivers are already here and the others will be flying in today.  St Kitts & Nevis’ first charter comes in at four this afternoon then the other will come right behind it.”

She added that bragging rights are on the line and the local drivers are hyped and ready for battle this weekend. She also explained the actual racing begins today with yesterday set aside for testing and tuning for the competitors.

Unfortunately, there will be no live streaming of the races over the weekend, Abraham explained.
