International drag-racing will return in eight days for the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMRSC) third King of the Strip (KOTS) drag race meet for the year which will speed off at the South Dakota circuit’s recently refurbished drag strip at Timehri.
When the motor racing authority held their second drag meet of the year last April, Raj Panday and his Alteeza were unmatched in the nine-second class and the racer has sent a stern warning to eight-second champion Shawn Persaud during a recent interview with Kaieteur Sport, stating that he will be coming for Persaud and his Toyota Caldina’s title.
Panday is abuzz due to the fact that the strip has now been equipped with a launch pad and he explained that, “It’s going to help us put down a lot more power while giving us more control. Overall it will improve drag time and I expect the strip record to be crushed come next week Sunday.”
He further explained that the only vehicles that he is wary of include Team Mohamed’s GTR that currently holds the strip record and Jeremy Rooks of Trinidad and Tobago (T&T), Nissan Laurel ‘Tweety Too’.
The KOTS 3 will see competitors from Suriname, T&T and Barbados going head to head with the local boys in a one day of scorching action that gets underway from 09:00hrs. Admission to the venue will cost $1,000 for adults and $500 for children.
The sponsors for KOTS 3 include Mohamed’s Enterprise, Ansa Mcal, B.M. Soat, ExxonMobil, Tropical Shipping, Del Ice Company, Japarts, Palm Court and Trans Pacific Auto Spares
