DMZ out of tomorrow’s Bushy Park Drag Warz II
DRAG RACING record-holder Mathew ‘DMZ’ Forde will sit out this weekend’s Barbados Association of Dragsters & Drifters (BADD) Courtesy Garage/GoodYear Summernight Drag Warz II at Bushy Park tomorrow.
It’s a day/night event scheduled to start at 3 o’clock, but Forde, who set the new record of 6.92 seconds for the 1/8th mile during Drag Warz I at the wheel of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo III, is still awaiting important parts for the gearbox that was damaged during the opening meet.
But in his absence, drivers such as Roger ‘His Hotness’ Mayers, in a Ford Focus, who had differential problems and was sidelined from the first race meet, Steve Bruce, whose Evo III is now fully sorted; and Graeme Finlayson in Westfield, are expected to be the drivers to watch. (TT)
