Between the 17th and 19th of May, Cassar will be competing at Doorslammers – an event that was extremely popular in the seventies and eighties at the raceway, Santa Pod. A few years ago this event resumed with a much bigger, new format and is quickly becoming popular, attracting huge crowds and many drivers.

Apart from Cassar, there will also be another Maltese drag racing driver Paul Fenech who will be racing another Escort MK1 belonging to Andy Harris.

Both Cassar and Fenech are members of the Malta Drag Racing Association, as well as regular and successful drivers at the Ħal Far Raceway.
