DRAGS: ‘Rameez is no threat to me’- Deodass


By Avenash Ramzan

Reigning Starlet Cup champion Kevin Deodass is least bothered by his competitors, especially Rameez Mohamed, for this weekend’s ‘Fastest Starlet’ category at the ‘King of the Strip’ Drag Meet.

In fact, Deodass is confident he will be the last man standing on Sunday when the dust is settled at the South Dakota Circuit. Mohamed, in an interview this week, professed that his Starlet, dubbed ‘Release the Beast’ has proven to be among the fastest in the country.

Mohamed said, “So we’re encouraging the other racers to come out and race against my Starlet, which is already rated one of the fastest Starlets in Guyana; it has proven itself by circuit racing. I’m giving the other Starlet owners a chance to come out and feel the power side by side with my Starlet.”

However, that proclamation doesn’t sit well with the Deodass camp, which is backed by Motor Trend Auto Spares and Repairs and SK Autoline.

“I see Rameez saying he got one of the fastest Starlets, but I don’t think he is any threat to me because I think he think he’s fast,” Deodass reckoned.

At the November race meet, Mohamed’s Starlet had dominated that category, while Deodass had mechanical issues, which hampered his performance. He had done enough though to cop the title of Starlet Cup champion.

“For two years I’m the Starlet Cup champion for the circuit race and I’m going for the Starlet Cup champion, also for drag racing,” Deodass boasted.

With the likes of Mohamed and Anand Ramchand set to compete with Deodass and others in the winner-takes-all Starlet category, a highly competitive day of racing is anticipated. However, Deodass is viewing things differently.

“I’m not worried about any of them. I know I’m fast so I have nothing to fear with none of them,” Deodass boldly stated.

Sunday’s event is being organised by the GMR&SC in partnership with Tropical Shipping. It will get underway at 09:00h and admission to the venue is $1,000 for adults and $500 for children.

It is being sponsored by Stag, Mohamed’s Enterprise, E-Networks, BM Soat, Prem’s Electrical, Rent A Tent, White Boy Auto Spares, Windjammer, Samaroo’s Investments, Trans Pacific, Special Auto, Ramchand’s Auto Body, Nexus, Palm Court and JR Burgers. 

The organisers are urging patrons to keep the racing for the track and don’t drink and drive.
