27 races for two-day CMRC final leg
A total of 27 races will be contested on two days when the final leg of the Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC) is staged in Guyana in November.
The much-anticipated Suzuki Radical SR-3, which has been confirmed for the event at the South Dakota Circuit, will be on display on both days (November 11 and 12), in addition to drifting action.
At the first competitors meeting on Friday night (October 21), GMR&SC president Rameez Mohamed said the event will have to be done over two days to ensure that there is enough time to run off the local and Caribbean Championships, as well as several new dimensions that the club is planning.
“We have a jam packed programme for November. There are so many things that we want to show the Guyanese public that we needed to have two full days of racing,” Mohamed said. “Our committee has confirmed so far that there are going to be two professional drift cars from Trinidad to showcase their skillset for the locals.”
He continued, “In addition to those drifters, there will the much talked about SR-3 Radicals from Barbados. We have four coming for a couple of exhibitions. That is in addition to the foreign competitors for the Caribbean Championship.”
On November 11 there will be qualifying and four events, and according to Mohamed, the day would be treated as any other race day, with charges for spectators, safety precautions and rules applying.
Qualification will start at 10:00h and races at 13:00h, while the following day the action will speed off at 08:00h. Scrutineering will take place on Thursday and Friday. Meanwhile, the club is organising weekend and VIP passes for those patrons desirous of viewing both days.
