1320 Heat successful – GMR&SC

first_imgTHE Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC) has deemed its International Drag Race meet a success just twenty-four hours after completion.According to Committee member, Motilall Deodass, they were able to achieve a successful International event even though the lack of a ferry service kept Suriname away.“We held a fanatastic day of racing on Sunday and despite two rain breaks, we were able to complete all the races,” Deodass told Chronicle Sport.“We want to thank Team Trinidad for coming here. The rail car especially brought a lot of fans out for the weekend and we want to say congratulations to them on taking the unlimited class.”Meanwhile, in spite of setting an unseen 7.9 second time on the strip on Saturday, Andy Bissessar’s Rail Car was not the fastest car on the race day.In fact, the fastest time of the day came out of the Team Mohamed’s Black GTR (Goliath) with 8.561 though Bissessar did manage to squeeze an 8.584 during one of the runs.There were also 8.916 and 9.006-second runs by the Mad Dog Supra of Deryck Jaisingh while the fastest bike time of the day came from Micheal Mathurine/Joel Bruce of Trinidad with 9.746.There is still doubt as to who has the fastest quarter mile machine as the run between the Godzilla GTR of team Mohamed’s Enterprise and the Rail car ended with an inconclusive result; the rail car jumping the light and the GTR breaking before the finish line.Representing the Trinidad team, Jadgeo ‘Mad Cow’ Seecharran commented, “We definitely love Guyana and we will be back here next year to compete again once we are invited.”Sponsors for the event included ISG, Tropical Shipping, DELCO ICE, Dereck Jaisingh Trucking Services and Machinery Rental, Associate Construction Co. Limited, Trans pacific Auto Spares and Auto Sales, BM Soat Auto Spares and Auto Sales, Mohamed’s Enterprise, A and R Jiwanram Printery, Hand in Hand, I Bet Supreme, Motul, E-Networks, Imran Auto Works, GT Tuners, Marcia’s Flight Service, Miracle Optical, Ready Mix Concrete, Innovations America, Fullworks and Blue Spring Water, Homeline Furnishing, Prem’s Electrical, Air Services Limited, Windjammer Hotel, Tropical View Hotel, KGM, First Class Auto Sales and Spares, Secure Innovations and Concepts Limited, Ramchand’s Crash Truck Service, Cyril’s Taxi Service and Choke Service Station.last_img read more

Sterling reflects on ‘wake-up call’ as he targets end to goal drought against Man Utd

That’s why we’ve got to be prepared and ready as there’s some tricky games ahead for them. We’ve just got to keep focused and win our games to be with a shout if they do slip up.”Sterling has 15 goals in 21 appearances for City this season, including eight in 14 Premier League outings. Third-placed City face an immense challenge in retaining their Premier League title, having fallen 11 points behind Liverpool, but Sterling is not ready to give up on another crown yet – even if Pep Guardiola has gone public to say his side are no longer thinking of that target.“It’s one that none of us at the club are happy with but it’s happening now,” he said. However, the former Liverpool man has not scored against the Red Devils in 16 previous attempts, making them the only side that he has played more than seven times without scoring.Nevertheless, he is confident that run can come to an end in Saturday’s derby as he aims to quieten his critics once again.“It was a subject I kept hearing after games; that I don’t score enough and I’m not good enough in front of goal,” he told Sky Sports.“When I first came onto the scene I wanted to show I had ability and that I was a good player. But I was never trying to be greedy in trying to win matches by myself. “It was a wake-up call hearing all the critics saying he can’t score goals, so I thought I’d show them that I can. It’s something I started to work on and have belief.“It’s a shift in mentality: in the dressing room I’d always think: ‘What am I going to do to the right back today – shall I nutmeg him? Maybe a step over?’“But now it’s a straight mentality of trying to score and where a goal can come from.”last_img read more

I would make a bet, that the DNA would belong to a big fat lab. Report Reply 1 reply · active 280 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Sunflower · 280 weeks ago You might loose your money.

Report Reply +3 Vote up Vote down resident2014 85p · 280 weeks ago Nothing more non-appetizing than walking into the donut shop first thing in the morning and seeing a big pile of dog poo on the sidewalk. I hope they start ticketing those people who don’t clean up after their dogs. Disgusting! Report Reply 0 replies · active 280 weeks ago +3 Vote up Vote down Sunflower · 280 weeks ago I have a Fat dog that looks like a Lab,and not once have we not cleaned up after him. Some of us do care about the down town area. We are the ones carrying the doggy bag to the trash, while 4 more piles are still there. Because a dog is Fat does not mean the owner does not clean. Don’t point a finger, just grab a bag. Report Reply 0 replies · active 280 weeks ago -2 Vote up Vote down Meme · 280 weeks ago Started walking on the grass at the local park to avoid the race car drivers on the paved road that runs through it only to find I had to dodge copious amounts of dog poo in the grassy areas. Goose grease isn’t a big deal…if you step in it it’s small and doesn’t reek, unlike dog poo. I have seen numerous dog owners letting their dogs run freely there, not only in the park but also on the golf course. I have yet to see a single one of them carrying a bag to pick up their dog’s leavings. We even saw one guy let his dog dump right on a tee. Also, you gotta love the neighborhood dog owners who take their dogs for a walk so they can poop and pee in someone else’s yard. If you can’t pick up after your dog (including in your backyard which also reeks) then please don’t get one. This is getting really old.
