Sammy CrashSammy crash 2Sammy Cummerbatch gets intimate with a wall at the hairpin

The Bajans seem to like the circuit @ Wallerfield and were practicing hard on Friday 29th. for the circuit racing event on Sunday.

Unfortunately the BMW M3-powered Escort of Sammy Cummerbatch lost brakes and sent him hurtling into the wall at the hairpin after taking the chicane under full power. The other competitors were diligently tuning their Group 2 cars and seem optimistic about their chances in competition .

Drag Racers MUST use South Track

Airstrip TrackAirstrip leading to circuit track will become new dragstrip.

 With instructions from E-Teck and the Ministry of Sport for drag racing events to take place on the south track at Wallerfield, heavy overhauling of the runway surface needs to take place.

On Thursday February 24th there was a meeting at the south track of some sub 10sec racers and a few officials from AutoSport, Speed Promotions and TTASA to discuss the arrangements for upcoming drag racing events. The faster car's drivers should be most concerned here since the south track is in far worst condition than the usual north track where extensive work was done last year to improve ET's and safety. Now all that work needs to be redone to the south facility..

Next Drag Meet: March 20th

Peace in Motor Racing?

CalendarAll clubs come to an agreement over event dates, finally.

TTASA invited all of the major players to a meeting this evening and we all attended. Present were reps from AutoSport, CARS, Speed Promotions, TTASA, TTDRA, TTKA, TTMF, and TTRC - this is listed in alpha sequence!

However we also received a notice from e-TecK (over the last two days) indicating “All Auto racing bodies are to meet with TTASA with a goal at arriving at a common schedule, which reflects the inputs of all sporting bodies.”

The discussions were amiable at times, compromising and of course a bit heated on certain issues. But in the spirit of wanting to move forward, we all agreed that we will work on the main issues at hand and thrash out the bothersome ones as we go along. And there are not a few of these i.e. Constitution, affiliation, licences, track conditions etc.
