By Stephan SookramWITH the second instalment of the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC) Drag Racing championship, billed for later this month, Mohamed’s Enterprise has expressed its commitment to the sport.The company, which also owns and operates the Team Mohamed’s Enterprise racing camp, has been a platinum sponsor of motorsport here.Team owner Azruddin Mohamed, in an invited comment said, “We are committed to seeing motorsport grow in Guyana. I, personally have a love for the sport here.”The team, home to the local quarter-mile record holder, the Nissan GTR nicknamed Goliath, have made major contributions to the sport locally.Before round one earlier this year, the team had extended the drag strip from 1000ft to1320ft, an unheard-of feat prior to its announcement.“Yes, we have made several contributions but it’s in the interest of developing motorsport here. I hope that other entities, private persons and even companies can follow suit in this regard because our team alone cannot develop the sport to where it needs to be. I think it’s no secret that drag racing here is growing,” he added.Apart from the extension of the strip, the team has refurbished the entire strip fencing, to ensure spectator safety and crowd control.Add their unwavering support to the actual logistics of the event and their input in the newly constructed Launchpad and other accessories then one would realise the company’s commitment is no secret.Apart from Goliath, the team have acquired the former world record-holding Ekanoo racing/Mangus GTR which had mechanical issues at round one.The team is working to have it ready for round two.Meanwhile GMR&SC president Rameez Mohamed said, “We are really blessed to have guyslike Team Mohamed’s guys on board with us.”“Words cannot explain how fantastic these guys have been for motorsport locally. What they have done would have taken us a while to do.”But it is now for others to take note. Companies, sponsors and others need to stand up. What Team Mohamed’s have done is set the ball rolling and we need to keep it.”The second round of the GMR&SC Drag Racing championship is set for June 23.
