GT Motorsports hails Sun Burst contribution to karting
The contribution of Continental Group of Companies to the growth and development of go-kart racing in Guyana is immeasurable.
Through its fine line of Sun Burst fruit juices, the company has been a corporate partner of GT Motorsports by being the title sponsor of the exciting 60cc Kids Cup.
Its alignment with the Albert Street and Thomas Lands facility has provided impetus to the Kids Cup, which is the proverbial engine room of the sport.
A new generation of racers has emerged since the alliance started, the likes of the TenPow brothers Jeremy and Justin, Paige Mendonca, Nicholas Sawh, Ben Phang, Nathan Rahaman and Rayden Persaud.
Jeremy was the overall champion of the Kids Cup in 2017 and 2018, while Justin currently leads the pile for 2019.
The partnership has also allowed for exposure for those racers, not only in Guyana, but beyond these shores. Some of them attended the inaugural Caribbean Junior Karting Academy in Barbados, held over three weekends this year.
That experience has already paid dividends with an increased level of competitiveness among the age group drivers, most recent as last weekend when the second round of the Georgetown Grand Prix was held.
In recognition of the company’s input in helping to shape the future of karting in Guyana, GT Motorsports on Monday presented a plaque to officials of the company, Administrative Assistant Rajesh Ramgolam and Marketing Assistants Nyron Zaman and Oneka Alleyne.
On hand to make the presentation were the TenPow brothers. It was a simple expression of gratitude for a magnanimous contribution to the sport.
