In a release to the media, GMR&SC acknowledged their gratitude for the support given and explained that running off a motor racing event is very costly so every dollar earned is appreciated.
The correspondence further noted that “These companies have long been supporters of Motor Sport in Guyana, with Choke Gas Station, well known for the Choke Starlet Cup, being the only Starlet championship in the entire region
Meanwhile, B.M. Soat Auto Sales, one of the leading auto suppliers in Guyana, and Motor Trend Service Centre, located in Area L Foulis East Coast Demerara, are no strangers to the sport.”
Additional documentation explained that “The GMR&SC are constantly looking to upgrade the South Dakota Circuit. This year, the club made a target of completing the Launch Pad and extending the strip to a full quarter-mile. Both objectives were reached due to the generous contributions of sponsors, support by the fans and very importantly the competitors.”
President of the GMR&SC, Rameez Mohamed, confirmed via correspondence to the media earlier in the month that Team Mohamed’s newly acquired white Nissan GT-R is set to finally make its competitive debut at the event after missing out in March due to transmission issues
