CHARLESTOWN, Nevis -- King of Calle did its growing reputation no harm when it ran the fastest time at the recent Culturama drag race meet held at the St James’ Raceway in Nevis over last weekend.

King of Calle’s owner, Gavin ‘Moon’ Clarke was certainly over the moon, as he watched his car clock 5.5 seconds in the 1/8 mile distance.
