Dragstrip Bonaire has officially opened.
A dragstrip has finally been designed, built, and opened last week. Fevering and racing have long been a passion of many locals. If you have visited Bonaire before, you may have noticed that weekly on Sunday afternoon until sunset, the road to Sorobon is used for fevering and racing. Not only is this area dangerous due to cars passing through or spectators on the side of the road, but the noise also carries all the way to the west coast of Bonaire.
There has been a need to move the racing to a safer area for years, and it has finally happened. Last Sunday, there was a huge unveiling of the new dragstrip at Onima, located on the main road to Rincon.
