Team Mohamed have added another GT-R to their racing fleet — in time for the drag race meet scheduled for March 24th at the South Dakota Circuit at Timehri, East Bank Demerara.
This new addition, an EKanoo Nissan GT-R, arrived in Guyana on Friday, and will without a doubt be taken for a test run in the new week. Team Mohamed now own three Nissan GT-R vehicles, including the ‘Goliath’, which holds the local speed record of 7.52 seconds, and is thus far undefeated on the strip.
Team Mohamed’s new motorcar is described as one of the fastest in the world, and the Team would definitely show off its power, come March 24.
Being record-keepers of the drag strip, Team Mohamed’s Enterprise would definitely endeavour to maintain their winning streak with the new addition. In a brief comment, an official from Team Mohamed explained that the new car is to more or less boost the competitiveness of the sport.
In addition to their impressive record in the drag racing category, Team Mohamed’s are the defending Caribbean Motor Racing Champions in the Super-Stock Category. Bryce Prince has won that title in 2017, and Matt Truelove took it over in 2018.
The team’s management personnel are presently financing the extension of the drag strip, which is expected to be completed for the March 24 meet. The extension is taking the length of the strip from 1000 feet to a full quarter mile.
President of the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC), Rameez Mohamed, has thanked Mohamed’s Enterprise for their continued support to the local motor racing fraternity.
According to sources, the investment is approximately $3 million. This is not the first time Mohamed’s Enterprise have donated to sport.
A lengthy list of sponsors has confirmed their interest in supporting the Championships. The list is headlined by Mohamed’s Enterprise, which have made a significant contribution to the event, according to a correspondence from the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC), the organisers of the drag meet.
The names of other sponsors released by the club late last Thursday evening included B.M. Soat Auto Sales, Motor Trend Service Center, Delco Ice Factory, Trans-Pacific Motor Spares & Auto Sales, Supreme Ventures, Air Services Ltd, Powerline Automotive Products, Cyril’s Taxi Service, Omega Brokers, E-networks, Prem’s Electrical, Miracle Optical, Choke Gas Station, Super Bet, and R. Kissoon Contracting Services.
Sponsorships would definitely be a welcome push for an event that was postponed by one week, and for a club which has placed the infrastructure of racing on the front burner for 2019.
Already, the GMR&SC has constructed new sections of the pit area to ensure that more competitors can be housed during its year-end international circuit racing event.
Construction of the launch pad and extension of the drag strip were objectives set out by the Rameez Mohamed-headed club to be completed this year, and the infrastructure is set to be in place for the March 24 event.
