Motilall ‘Kevin’ Deodass, Andrew King and Team Mohamed’s were among the multiple winners at the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club’s (GMR&SC) annual awards ceremony held Monday evening at Parc Rayne.
Deodass regained his Starlet Cup title and also managed to win the Group Three title.
While the official points standings for the various categories were announced by chief timekeeper Azaad Hassan, it was expected that Deodass would cop the Starlet Cup title given his excellent run throughout the year. He also won $500,000, compliments of Choke Gas Station.
King, who swept the Group Four races on Sunday, retained his title as Group Four champion and his crew won the award for best team since he also toured Barbados earlier in the year and had success.

The Special Auto-powered Shan Seejatan won the Group Two championship, despite not having the best of November race meets.
On the two-wheel end, Matthew Vieria still stands as the local Super Stock champion, despite getting just one third place finish on Sunday.
