GMR&SC, sponsors pumped for titanic ‘Clash of Champions’
Plans are moving afoot for the staging of the ‘Clash of Champions’ race meet organised by the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC). At the launch on Tuesday evening at GT Motorsports, the sponsors pledged their overwhelming support for the November 16-17 event.
Corporate Commutations Officer of ANSA McAL Trading, Treiston Joseph, stated STAG Beer will continue be a supporter of motor-racing in Guyana. He called on persons to come out and enjoy the races, but do so responsibly.
Operations Manager of KFC Guyana, Greg De Gannes, expressed that the progression of the sport and talents, which present a bright future, have motivated them to continue the partnership.
Meanwhile, Director General at the Ministry of Tourism, Donald Sinclair, outlined the influx of persons that enters the country is a great indicator of the impact Sport Tourism has on the country.
Carey Griffith, an executive of the GMR&SC, called for persons to abide by the rules of the day and respect the Marshals’ decisions. He further encouraged persons to attend the event early and most importantly have a designated driver if they plan to consume alcohol.
