I say credit to the coordinators for endeavoring to acquaint real motorsport with Nigeria, despite the fact that there is still awesome opportunity to get better. This was not kidding dashing!

Similarly as with all races, there is the probability of accidents. In the current year's occasion, there were around seven accidents. A large portion of the accidents happening at a renowned rapid right turn bend. Thankfully, there were no genuine wounds and the racers are back home and well and as of now making arrangements for one years from now occasion which comes up again on the 26th of November, 2016.
