‘Quarter Mile Return’ set for March 27; KFC Guyana onboard
Speed is on the mind of every drag racer and the sport is set to return on March 27 with the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC) confirming the event earlier this week, and already support continues to pour in.
Fast food franchise, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), has continued its support of motor racing locally by being one of the first sponsors of the event dubbed ‘Quarter Mile Return’.
Having already being a patron in not only drag racing but circuit racing and karting, the company has rejoined the quarter-mile shootout.
In an invited comment, GMR&SC president, Rameez Mohamed, said: “We are glad to welcome a stellar sponsor such as KFC to drag racing.”
“They have been on board with us since 2018, sponsoring all our major meets, and they have also sponsored the GT motorsports KFC Cup, so their investment in motorsport has been no small feat.”
Mohamed noted the committee is moving with pace with preparations for the highly anticipated event that has been approved by the National COVID-19 Task Force, and since there has not been any drag racing in over a year, efforts are being doubled to ensure an almost perfect meet.
“I think this will be a fantastic race meet and we are expected to a large turnout of cars, as was the case with last Sunday’s Endurance Championship first round. The pandemic has left competitors hungry and about 16 cars are expected to arrive from Suriname as well.”
Tickets for the event will be sold at the venue and they cost G$2,000 per adult and G$500 per child.
