The Vincy Motorsports Club (VIMOC) has received confirmation to host the first full quarter mile drag race event at the recently de-commissioned E.T. Joshua Airport in Arnos Vale.

Working along with the SVG Professional Auto Racing Club, the event has been scheduled for this weekend with two days of drag racing activity beginning on Saturday and continuing Sunday from 10 a.m. on each day.

“Race enthusiasts and drivers from across the country have begun preparations to participate in this momentous occasion and some of the fastest cars in SVG will be on display,” the Vincy Motorsports Club said.

The event will be the first side by side full quarter mile race and will allow SVG to now put their stamp of Drag Racing in the Caribbean.

“The general public is invited to witness high-speed drag racing on what may be the most picturesque racing venue in the region. Entrance fee is $10 and kids under 12 enter free,” the club said.
