Seejatan, Seebarran shine amidst the gloom at South Dakota
Shan Seejatan and Raymond Seeberran proved to be the biggest sparks on a truncated day of racing at South Dakota when Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club staged round two of the National Race of Champions Sunday.
In his Special Auto-sponsored Toyota Levin, Seejatan won two races in Group Two and in the Sports Tuner, with his Honda Civic, he got two first-place finishes and a second.
Seejatan, who is powered by Brian TenPow and his Top Power Racing crew, stated he was only at 90% capacity for the day, but was still pleased with the performances. He added the other cars are getting faster and is conscious more has to be done ahead of the final showdown in November. He is the defending Group Two champion.
The MOTUL powered Seebarran was a consistent podium finisher, notching a first, a second and a third in the Street Tuner class and a first in his lone Sports Tuner outing.
“The car worked a lot better; I tried the MOTUL oil because I am the Brand Ambassador and it is proving to be the best oil because I shaved off 0.8 second already,” Seeberran stated.
Defending Superstock champion Matthew Vieira was also picture perfect, winning both Superstock races and one in the Street class.
“The MOTUL oil had the bike firing, the brakes especially; it worked really well and it was not overheating and it had a lot of stopping power,” Vieira related to News Room.
Some other impressive performances came from Roopnarine Dasarat in the Street Tuner, while the lone Starlet Cup race saw Motilall ‘Kevin’ Deodass finish ahead of Anand Ramchand and Vishal Sawh.
Andrew King picked up two wins from as many races in Group Four, while Danny Persaud picked up two wins in the group three. Attention will now turn to the international drag racing in August and then Endurance in September.
