The Safety Clinic presentation, hosted by NAGICO Insurances at the request of the organizers, included safety regulations for both cars and drivers and covered various guidelines pertaining to the construction of the chassis, different types of acceptable safety belts and harnesses, removable steering wheels, window nets, and general rules of conduct on the racing track. On hand for the presentation were Curacao Auto Sport Foundation President, Mr. Frank Brandao and Car Inspector, Mr. Clifton Hoyer.


NAGICO’s Managing Director, Mr. Eric Ellis: "While this sport is not new to St. Maarten drivers, information on international rules and regulations on the sport may have not always been readily available or properly introduced. As an insurance company that understands the need for safety and good conduct on the road or track for all drivers, we did not hesitate when contacted by the organizers, to allow them to make use of the NAGICO board room and equipments to carryout this vital presentation."


The schedule for the various race categories begin on the night of 28th of April with "A Night on the Track Party". Race days are from the 29th of April to May 1st. Drivers who will be representing St. Maarten in Curacao are being assisted by long time drag race activist Mr. Charles Benders, who is coordinating logistics to and from Curacao.
