Jason Moussa with his Nissan Pulsar took first place in the 12-second category to be the pick of the Vincentian drivers.

All seven drivers did their utmost best and impressed the crowd to keep the Vincentian flag flying high.

Marcus Wallace driving his Nissan 300ZX, and one of the crowd favourites, competed in the 12-second category.

He was, however, unable to continue due to a timing system malfunction.

The other Vincentian drivers did not compete on bracket racing but opted to tune and time their cars for the two days, clocking some impressive quarter mile times for their own personal records.

The contingent of seven local drivers and drag cars along with the Street Tuners Auto Club (STAC) left the country Thursday, March 24th, to take part in the 5th annual Grenada Drag Fest in Grenville, Grenada.

A total of three islands, Trinidad, Grenada and St.Vincent and the Grenadines, put on a spectacle of American muscle and Japanese imports, clashing throughout the event for supremacy.

Other drivers and cars were Lennox Jack driving his Toyota Corolla; John Riffin in his Subaru Impreza; Devon Daniels in his Nissan Sunny; Ezra Robertson in his Mazda 323, and Obed Williams in his Honda Integra.

The contingent returned on Monday night and immediately the calls for a drag facility here have been made by Moussa and STAC’s president.

“Drag racing is definitely the fastest growing motor sport in SVG and the need for a local facility is essential for this sport to shine,” he contended. (DD)
