Seaboard Marine Caribbean Motor Racing Championships 2016
Guyanese Group three driver Nazim Gafoor says that his aim will be to take the Group three title at the final leg of this year’s Seaboard Marine Caribbean Motor Racing Championships (CMRC) which will be held at the South Dakota Circuit on November 13.
Gafoor, who is currently in second place on 73 points, trails Trinidad and Tobago Driver Paul Vieira by 127 points but feels if he can win all his three races he can secure the title.
“The group 3 class is where everyone expects to see the rotary boys and I have to challenge Paul Vieira because if I win all three races I can be champion but there is Danny Persaud and Ravi Singh who can challenge me.”
Peraud is third on 66 points and is tied with Trinidadian Worthman for third place while Ravi Singh is further down the table but in the past has had good returns at South Dakota.
Gafoor, who has had some good outings in two of the previous three legs, says that preparation has been going according to plan.
“Preparation has being good so far, we ran two races in Barbados where I got a third place in one, in the battle with Vieira for the lead my gear box gave out and ended my participation,” the driver revealed.
The driver, who is sponsored by Grand Sports Automotive and Sales and Seaboard Marine says that his gold plated Mazda Miata works fine since he has made a few change to the car.
“I think the car the is ready and I can handle the pressure and finish in front of those guys but just need to drive properly, I was going good but I had some issue so hopeful if I don’t have any issues and I will be on top”.
The CMRC final leg is dubbed to be one of the biggest in recent years in Guyana and organisers have placed ticket prices at $2,000 for Adults and $1,000 for kids.
