The Guyana Motor Racing & Sports Club (GMR&SC) Club Day Race Meet is definitely
on today with scintillating rivalries expected among the Rookies, ‘B’ Class Superbikes, Groups 2A&B, go-karters and 125cc bikers at the South Dakota Circuit.
Most of the prominent racers in the respective groups have confirmed participation and a release from the club earlier this week indicated that the meet will go on from 10am whether or not it rains today.
The ‘B’ Class Superbikes division is crowded with ambitious riders and that is one of the features that should provide the impetus for some competitive skirmishes. Among those anticipated to take starting orders are reigning champion, Carey Griffith and Kwame Ridley.
The go-karts for seniors and juniors should also generate some scorching finishes. In the Rookies division, the Ali brothers Roshan and Asad will once again attempt to dominate the opposition, but they are expected to receive stiff challenges from the rest of the field.
In the Group 2A category, Roshan will have to be at his level best to repel the opposition that includes Chet Singh, whose machine is as reliable as they come, while, Shairaz Roshandin, Jad Rahaman and Syed Hassan have all shown the ability to win championships in the past.
Then there is Aaron Bethune and the father and son combination of Harold and Denzel Hopkinson, who, though they are still to stamp their authority in the division, have the machines to create havoc on a given day.
The Group 2B should provide similar excitement and exhilarating action with Danny Persaud, Shairaz Roshandin, Afraz Allie, Gavin Gouveia and Vishal Sawh, all capable of producing nerve tingling battles.
In the senior category, Stanley Ming, Kevin Jeffrey, Mark Vieira, Marcus Fiedtkou, Ravi Singh and Shane Ally are the top contenders and with Jeffrey and Vieira moving into unchartered waters competitively in this segment, it is obvious that they would want to make an instant impact.
However, Singh is the current karting champion in Trinidad and Tobago, while Fiedtkou, Ally and Ming can be considered the professionals locally. The juniors are all eager to go, especially in light of the disappointment of last weekend’s event, which had to be cancelled due to the waterlogged club’s Headquarters. The motor racing season starts in earnest today and a packed house is expected.
