New plan for Dragsters and Drifters
THE UPGRADING of timing equipment is included in an eight-point plan of action for the Barbados Association of Dragsters and Drifters.
The plan comes amidst concerns about malfunctioning timing equipment at the recently held Nostalgia – Past Meets Present acceleration test at Paragon, Christ Church, on November 1.
After a general meeting on Tuesday at the Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex, the club, in a statement, said that it was unfortunate that this issue had escalated the way it did, but the committee of management of the club acknowledged that if the timing anomaly had been picked up during the event, the competitor would have been asked to rerun.
According to the statement, the competitor in question only made one run, so there was nothing to compare the time with. (TT)
