Radical Super Cars and Superbike on display at Science Fair finals this weekend
Students and patrons will have a chance this weekend to get up close and personal with the Radical Super Cars and Superbike, which will be on display at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport’s National Science Fair finals and Expo at the Arthur Chung Conference Centre.
The two-day event will take place between 15:00h and 20:00h on each day.
It provides an opportunity for the young creative minds participating in the Fair and Expo, and those visiting, to learn about the engineering that went into the construct of the machines.
These super-fast machines- the Radicals powered by Kristian Jeffrey and Mark Vieira, and Matthew Vieira’s Superbike- will be on show this weekend and at the highly anticipated November race meet staged by the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club at the South Dakota Circuit.
In July, Guyana participated in the first round of the Radical Caribbean Cup at Bushy Park Circuit, Barbados, with champion driver Jeffrey winning two of the three races.

A total of 32 projects from these Regions, as well as from Regions One, Seven and Nine will be on display this weekend, under five main categories: Energy, Environment, Agriculture, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Housing and Water.
