– Ogle anticipates showdown for series title
By Edison Jefford
Grass Track Racing will return to its Mecca, the Ogle Community Centre Ground Sunday when the best riders in Guyana shift gears for a shot of the title in the final Championship Series Race meet under ‘De Ambassadors’ promotion.
With Andy Rajkarran leading the professionals and junior sensation, Junior Da Silva with the lead in the novices category, the other riders will certainly look to overhaul the duo in an attempt to stop what would be a clean sweep.
The two dirt bike riders cemented their respective leads in the two categories of the initial two meetings of the ‘Grass Track’ Championship Series and will look to ‘put the icing on the cake’ Sunday at the renowned Ogle race track.
Rajkarran and Da Silva had dominated the first meet at Hampton Court, Essequibo and in a similar fashion, the duo returned to hijack most of the attention at the second meeting of the three-race series at Port Mourant late last year.
Promoter, Sheik Yaseen told Kaieteur Sport yesterday that the Ogle Community Centre is in excellent condition to host Sunday’s meeting and he anticipates a keen battle because a championship trophy is at stake for the series champ.
Apart from the championship trophy, each race carries with it cash prizes for the top three finishers in each category. Yaseen revealed that everything is in place to host the 12 races scheduled for the event that begins at 12 noon.
“So far the riders are confirming their participation; the ground is in excellent shape and a lot is at stakes. Everything is in place,” Yaseen informed, adding that the Grande Finale is a collaborative effort with Banks DIH Limited.
The Rajkarran duo, Andy and Raj, Vassie Barry, Andrew Wong, Terrence Clarke, Alvin Balgobin, Dave Gangadin and the Da Silva brothers have all been confirmed for the meet on Sunday with others still to book their final place.
In addition to the race meeting, this newspaper understands that the ‘Grass Track Hall of Fame’ will also be launched at the facility as part of the event. There will be four riders at the ground to be the initial inductees for honour.
Regal Stationery and Computer Centre, Ray Auto Spares, Guyadin Construction, Andrew Arts, BM Soat Auto Sales, Full Works Motor Spares, RRT Enterprise, Crazy Auto Work, Builders Lumber Yard, Keith Ramnarine, Swiss House Cambio and Five Star Appliances are among the major sponsors of Sunday’s race meeting.
