AutoSport Drag and Wind 1 - 2015

AutoSport Racing launched its 2015 Drag and Wind(ing) series of Events on 1st March at the ARC Car Park. With a mixture of rain, high breeze and then the best Caribbean weather, competitors welcomed the return to the original concept of Drag… and then the winding segments. This again proved quite attractive to both driver and patrons alike, since the “race” aspect from the start always kept everyone glued to see who would arrive at the first turn the fastest.

St Lucia DragWars Sat

St.Lucia DragWars 2013 - Retribution

The island of St. Lucia is home to roughly 163,000 people, although some 300,000-400,000 visitors pass through the English- and French Creole-speaking island every year. It’s easy to see why, as St. Lucia is the quintessential vacation destination for honeymooners and families alike and famous for its twin volcanic peaks known as the Pitons. Their industries include clothing, electronics assembly, beverages, foods, packaging and agriculture, with exports like bananas, cocoa and vegetables. This means that infrastructure, transportation and energy costs are high and for the average Sent Lisyen (St. Lucian), life can sometimes be challenging. It is more so for the enthusiast, who may find it difficult to own and modify a car for racing, unless he or she runs a few profitable businesses. Why does any of this matter? It’s because this picturesque little island has secured one of the best drag strips in the English-speaking Caribbean. It’s successfully opened its doors to motorsport tourism, bringing high-octane excitement alongside its warm, friendly people and surrounded by natural beauty.
