“Of course we can take down the GTR”- Suriname driver
Surinamese driver Prakash Lachman is sending a strong message to his Guyanese competitors ahead of this Sunday’s ‘Reaction’ Dragz meet at the South Dakota Circuit.
Lachman, whose fleet of cars includes a Nissan Skyline GTR R33, is boasting that his machine can “take down” the GTR Nismo of the Mohamed’s Enterprise camp. “Of course we can take down the GTR. We now have two very fast drag cars; chances are they could run even,” Lachman told News Room Sport during an exclusive interview.
Lachman’s Nissan Skyline GTR R33 is an old model, which was made famous by the late Paul Walker of the ‘Fast and Furious’ movie series.
Mohamed’s Enterprise’s GTR Nismo and GTR Goliath, which is tuned by Switzer Performance, were undefeated at the last drag meet, something that camp will look to maintain come Sunday. Switzer Performance is based in Miami and is known for producing some of the fastest GTRs in the world.
Lachman meanwhile, is looking to better his performance from the last time when he was easily outrun by the Mohamed’s GTR Nismo.
Meanwhile, the international drag strip and launch pad will be completed in time for the event, which will encourage even more faster times on race day, the organisers have said. With regards to comfort and safety of spectators, it was explained that the club is in the process of erecting stands in the in-field to allow a more relaxed view of the racing.
Apart from the cars, up to $50,000 will be a stake for the fastest bus, with free runs beginning at 09:00h, followed by qualifying at 10:00h and the knockout rounds from 11:00h.
