In October of 1978 three local circuit racers, James Fifi, Gregory Solis and Gordon Gonsalves, attended the US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, New York state, then drove down to Florida to finish their vacation. While in Miami they ended up at a karting event one night and an idea sparked in their minds. At the time, circuit racing was very popular in Trinidad with dozens of competitors taking part in race meets at the Wallerfield circuit. The problem was that, because of the large number of drivers, the quickest were often separated by the classes in which they competed so some of the best drivers never actually drove against one another in evenly-matched cars.
