The second leg of the Guyana Motor Racing & Sports Club (GMR&SC) Drag Championship 2019 shifts off tomorrow at the South Dakota Circuit, Timehri. This year’s championship is expected to see larger participation with a number of new drivers throwing their hat into the ring.
One of those new competitors is Kester Bowen, a novice, who will be revving in the Bikes’ category tomorrow.
Bowen, who is a Lance Corporal in the Guyana Defence Force (GDF), will be eager not only to come out on top of his competitors but to register the fastest lap time since Mohamed’s Enterprise has put forward $100,000 cash for the fastest biker around the South Dakota.
“I expect to go out and give the fans a race worth their money. Hopefully good performances will take me up the pecking order since I’m just a novice and hopefully consistency can earn me a sponsor,” the 24-year-old noted.
Bowen further posited that, “I have been riding non-competitively for three years now and what I really want to do is make my father proud since he has been supporting and fueling my growth in the motor sport environment from the get go.”
Bowen will be in the Superstock category with his Yamaha R6 which he stressed, had undergone a lot of work from his mechanic; Steven Rambarran.
Also confirming his participation in tomorrow’s meet is Matthew Vieira, who will be sure to provide stiff competition to Bowen and the lot.
The championship winners of the Choke Starlet Cup, Miracle Optical Street Tuner and Prem’s Electrical Sports Tuner are set to pocket $500,000 each.
The event has seen tremendous support from the business community including E-Networks, Tropical shipping, BM Soat Auto Sales, Mohamed’s Enterprise, Miracle Optical, Choke Gas Station, Special Auto, Prem’s Electrical, Nexus Machine Shop, Blue Spring Water, Motor Trend, Ramchand Auto Spares, Power Line Automotive, Motul oil and KGM security.
