Thrills Under the Stars: LCB Summer Shootout Drag Racing Event

Malta’s Only Night Race Returns with Drag Racing Action and Live Drifting Shows

The highly anticipated LCB Summer Shootout kicks off this Thursday evening, promising an experience for motorsport enthusiasts. As the only night event in Malta, the third round of the national drag racing championship will feature 62 competitors, a notable increase from the previous years’ averaging from 40 of 50 participants, signaling growing enthusiasm and positivity in the sport.

The event, begins on Thursday at 19:00 with practice runs. The competition heats up at 22:00, offering spectators head-to-head races under the stars. Friday’s schedule includes five rounds, with drivers required to complete four additional runs, preparing for the final showdown on Saturday.

Saturday’s finale starts at 19:00 with shakedown passes, essentially test runs, until 21:00, followed by eliminations, semi-finals, and the much-anticipated finals.

Adding to the excitement, there will be live drifting sessions by the Malta Drifting Club and Team Maximum Lock on Friday and Saturday in front of the grandstand between class runs. These sessions will provide their drifting skills and definitely adding a great show, enhancing the overall spectator experience.

Jean Paul Cauchi expressed gratitude for the overwhelming support at last week’s Hal Far Thursday Specials, where the gates had to be closed early due to a full house. He hinted at more surprise events in the future, underscoring the growing excitement surrounding local drag racing.

For those unable to attend in person, the event will be streamed live on Facebook. Highlights include fierce competition in the D4 and D5 classes, with standout racers like Justin Muscat aiming to achieve a six-second pass. The weather forecast looks promising, with cooler temperatures expected to enhance the night-time racing experience.
