Rearden Racing’s foray into the 14th edition of the NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill (2016) started with Vesko Kozarov at the wheel, taking the green flag after qualifying the car at fourth position in the E0 class, and 20th overall from a massive field of 65 pro-level starters.Vesko opened with a triple stint spanning the first three hours of the race. His stint, however, did no go untroubled, as he had contact in the opening hour, forcing car #33 to make an unscheduled pit stop. Team owner and driver Lara Tallman took the wheel next, but the initial bad luck didn’t stop there as Lara also made a few unscheduled stops, dropping team Rearden even further down the running order. Afterwards, Lara was able to claw back some time with her consistent driving.
With tickets and hotel booked to a seminar in Fort Lauderdale, I also took the opportunity to contact Porsche Centre Trinidad and Porsche Latin America to see if I could review a few of their cars while out on this trip. I drafted my itinerary for the seven-day trip and was absolutely over the moon when they said that I could have both the Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and the Porsche Boxster GTS (feature here) for a few days each to drive and evaluate!
Recently there have been messages being shared stating that come Monday 20th February 2017, Police and Licensing Officers will be out in force checking vehicle inspection stickers and certificates. The messages go on to state that the fine for not having this sticker up-to-date is TT$5000 while others quote TT$1000 and TT$7500. I contacted Mr. Phillip Greaves, Interim President of the Association of Vehicle Inspection Stations in Trinidad & Tobago to shed some light on this.According to Mr. Greaves, “first and foremost it is the law of Trinidad & Tobago to have your vehicle inspection valid regardless if Police are enforcing it or not”. So you cannot claim you did not know they were checking or not.
Porsche continues to push the envelope with its latest iteration of what was once envisioned as a four-door 911 that has now evolved into one of the world’s best luxury sport saloons. An invitation-only event was held at Lifestyle Motors on the 25th of January 2017 as part of a 3-day showing, signaling the beginning of the Panamera’s second chapter in Trinidad & Tobago.
Although for many of us it seems like just yesterday, fifteen years ago, during the July–August vacation months of 2001, one of the most anticipated movies of that year made its debut. The Fast and the Furious brought sellout crowds to Globe, Presidente, and Palladium and just about every other cinema in the country, as fans rushed to see it over and over again.
