Day 4: Sunday 28 April

The final day began with the drivers’ briefing while electricians were abuzz restoring power to the control tower. After this, local government officials endorsed the motorsport tourism initiative, commended the management team, greeted all the drivers and officially opened the competition. The action came fast and furiously as each country’s team battled for dominance in their brackets but then later that evening, the rains made a return.

When at the end of Sunday’s racing, the prevalent question being asked is ‘When is the next event?’ you know that this one was a real success. St. Lucia just cannot continue to have one international event a year. The competitors love this track and the nodal location. With its close proximity to seaport, airport, hotels and guesthouses, it is just great. We shall not forget the comments made by the two ministers present at the closing prize-giving function, both committing the government to become more involved…
