SXM Drag Race 2023: two-wheel enthusiasts made the trip in force


Organized this Sunday, April 23 by the AMAN association, the event was awaited by the greatest number. A thousand people came to attend this supervised run race in the Hope Estate sector.

Miguel Mingau, president of the Association Moto Action du Nord (AMAN), can be delighted with the smooth running of this event dedicated to two-wheeler races with a standing start, which brought together a thousand enthusiasts who came with family or friends. Supported by the services of the State and the Community as well as the CLSPD and various associations, AMAN welcomed for this SXM drag race 2023 about thirty pilots from both sides of the territory or from other Caribbean islands such as the Guadeloupe or Curacao. The experienced pilots competed in compliance with safety rules on the national road 7 closed for the occasion between Grand-Case and Hope Estate, on a secure 250-meter track. After having passed, the day before, the usual technical control with their competition vehicle, the pilots carried out three test climbs in their respective category (motorcycle, scooter, Tmax, quad) before embarking on the classification climbs. . Around 10 a.m., a simulation of an accident between a motorcycle and a car was carried out by the firefighters so that the public became fully aware that responsible driving avoids many tragedies on the roads of Saint-Martin. The wearing of protective equipment for two-wheeler drivers and driver behavior are two major factors in road safety. In the road safety village set up specially alongside the race, several stands were held to raise awareness among the population, of all generations, of the risks of the road and this problem that destroys lives. Not to mention the various workshops such as the one on the effects of alcohol and cannabis on driving. The transport ticket service guided the public on obtaining a gray card or any other vehicle-related document. At the end of this SXM drag Race 2023, the organization of which was unanimously hailed, the message is common: continue prevention with young people  on wearing a helmet and respecting the highway code so that they can enjoy a spectacular show like last Sunday for many years to come. _VX
