Spectators At Nevis Island’s Drag Strip
September 23, 2008
Over 5000 motor sport enthusiasts from several countries of the Caribbean attended the Inaugural Car and Motorcycle Race at the new St. James Drag Raceway on Nevis, Friday afternoon.
The drag race was the largest ever sporting event to be staged on the island.
The quarter mile race track, believed to be one of the regions finest, had participating cars and motorcycles from Nevis, St.Kitts, the British Virgin Islands and other countries of the region.
The track was built at a cost of $3 Million and official sources say that already there has been a significant return on that investment, as several local vendors, guest house owners, car rental agents , bus drivers, taxi drivers and restaurant owners all enjoyed good business as a result of the well-patronised event.
