Team St. Lucia Dominates in SVG Independence Alternative Sports

WHILE most Saint Lucians were celebrating the culmination of Creole Heritage Month at home, a large team of Nationals hopped over to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) via two separate marine vessels to participate in SVG’s  44th Independence celebrations.


The activities, which took place from October 27 to 29, featured several alternative sports including drag racing, off- roading, island bike riding and a car audio sound clash competition.

According to a team official, it was the first time in many years that Saint Lucia brought over a record of 12 sound vehicles to the shores of Saint Vincent to participate in the culmination of the celebrations.

Reports say that unfortunately, the Infinity Sound Clash Competition was canceled about an hour into the show as a result of a technical issue with the promoters. The event was rescheduled by another promoter the following day however, three competitors including major contender Freshnuts, were unable to participate as they were scheduled to return to Saint Lucia that same day.

The event started in the evening at the Heritage Square in Kingstown where the remaining Saint Lucians went head-to-head against the best of Saint Vincent in various categories.

In the first category: Advance, Saint Lucian Andre Joseph operating Vicious Sounds took 1st Place with 130.3 pts.; followed by two Vincentians in 2nd and 3rd positions, respectively.

In the loudest category identified as Ultimate, Nyaim James with the famous “Blue Pill” came 1st scoring 132.4 on the meter. At a close 2nd was Daron Gerald with “The Orange Car” scoring 131.6 and Gerald Felicien operating Thanos, came in third with 130.2.

Owner of The Dark Knight, Valentine Dantes also placed 1st   in the Tune for Tune Grudge Match, followed by a Vincentian in 2nd place and Andre Joseph finished 3rd.

In total, Team Saint Lucia captured six out of the nine trophies contested.

A team representative noted that, “The Saint Lucia Auto Sound Club (SLASC) is extremely proud of its team members for representing their home country so well and for maintaining the club’s high standard of sound quality across the Caribbean Sea.”
