    Drag Races in April

    I forget on which site I read this, but I guess there are 3-4 days of drag races the last week in April. Does anyone know if this actually brings in a crowd? Should we expect the island to be busier, including the restaurants?

    >>> "the last week in April."
    ---- Starts the slow season so a few races will not affect the tourist areas.

    The island does not get busier for it. No worries!

    Are these actual drag races like NHRA 1/4mile? or an "Island style" spin to a race?

    Fish On,

    I'm not sure, but this is some of the information that I've seen:

    www.istc.org/sisp/index.htm?fx=event.detail&event_id=159868.

    There's an e-mail address at this link, so you can ask for more information.

    Doing a quick google it looks like some actual drag racing. Thats when we will be there, hopefully the Rui is a more than a few miles away from the race track...

    About 12 miles as the crow flies...noise nor traffic from the track will not affect your trip whatsoever.

    Thanks
