Surinamese expected for this weekend’s Drag race

first_imgWITH the days counting rapidly down to the much-anticipated first Drag racing event of the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC), international competitors are beginning to signal their interest.According to the GMR&SC, Suriname is interested in supporting the event with a contingent of cars wanting to come in on Friday morning.GMR&SC is in the process of getting the list from that body’s motorsport division, but has confirmed at least five cars are expected.The interest shown by international competition in Drag racing locally is now renewed with the installation of the launchpad for drag racing.That, coupled with the fact that the strip is being extended from 1000ft to 1320ft or a quarter-mile, the Surinamese will be eager to finally unleash the full power of their machines.The icing on the cake was the fact that last week, one of the fastest Nissan GTR’s in the world was recently cleared at a port in Georgetown.The EKanoo/Magnus GTR, which will compete on Sunday under the Team Mohamed’s Enterprise banner is something that fans and other racers are most interested in seeing.In addition to that, the 1000ft strip record-holder, Goliath, the team’s other Nissan GTR, will also be in action.The event is sponsored by Mohamed’s Enterprise, BM Soat Auto Sales, Motor Trend Service Centre, Delco Ice Factory, Trans-Pacific Motor Spares, Supreme Ventures, Air Services Limited, PowerLine Auto, Cyril’s Taxi, Omega Brokers, E-Networks, Prem’s Electrical, Miracle Optical, Choke Gas Station, Top Brandz and Super Bet.last_img read more
