Over 90 registered for Drag Meet; GMR&SC President expects records to tumble
The Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC) will stage its first Drag Racing Meet for 2022, themed ‘quarter-mile return’ and it has seen high interest by competitors.
President Rameez Mohamed is predicting records to tumble on a high-octane day of speed at the South Dakota Circuit.
March 2021, Guyanese got a taste of intense Drag racing action and saw the rise of new teams to challenge the number camp, Team Mohamed’s.
This meet on Sunday has also seen a rise in competitors, as Mohamed told News Room Sport on Friday that they have already registered over 90 competitors for the event.
That number is inclusive of cars and bikes.
“Since that last meet which was cut short, everyone was itching to get back in the track. There is really high interest and you can see even Suriname has a strong contingent on its way as we speak. I really foresee it to be a very competitive race meet and for sure, records will tumble once the weather continues to hold”, Mohamed related.
From a logistic standpoint, the GMR&SC President said they have put the necessary safety arraignments in place and they want all to abide by the rules.
“In the interest of safety and running a smooth event, we want people to listen to the announcements and be efficient in getting to the line. This meet has a lot of cars and we got to work fast. More so, the staging area is not to be swamped with spectators, we have these rules in the interest of everyone’s safety”, the President underscored.
Adult tickets cost G$2000 each, while admission for children is G$500.
