Ramps Logistics in Persaud’s corner for Georgetown Grand Prix
Reigning 125cc Junior champion Mikhail Persaud has been given a massive boost to his 2018 season with Ramps Logistics endorsing the talented young go-kart driver.
The Oil and Gas Logistics company recently presented a sponsorship cheque to Persaud in the presence of chief mechanic Brian Tenpow, signalling its backing of driver for the remainder of the season.
Persaud, a top competitor in the 125cc Junior and Senior categories at GT Motorsports, will compete at the Georgetown Grand Prix this Sunday (May 6).
His father, Sunil Persaud, said the camp is quite enthused by the support given by Ramps Logistics, noting that it will no doubt help to enhance their operations.
Director of Ramps Logistics, Richard DeNobrega, said his company is pleased to hop onboard with Persaud for the remainder of the season.
DeNobrega said they have taken note of Persaud’s obvious talent, and the fact that as a young man he is gainfully occupied. “And we want to push his development,” DeNobrega said.
In 2017, Persaud, with eight wins in the season, was the champion driver of the highly competitive 125cc Junior category, chalking up 272 points. Rayden Persaud, with four victories, was second overall with 239 points, followed by John Phang with 205.
Persaud is the leading competitor in the 125cc Senior category in 2018, totalling 50 points from the first Georgetown Grand Prix in March. Closely behind are the Trinidad and Tobago Zachary Boodram and Kristian Boodoosingh on 45 and 43 points respectively.
