The Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR &SC) yesterday officially opened its Go-Kart track at Thomas Lands in an effort to attract racers outside of the South Dakota Circuit.
Present to set things in motion was Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, Dr Frank Anthony who expressed his satisfaction to the GMR&SC for setting the tone for other sports associations to follow.
President of the GMR&SC, Vishok Persaud said the initiative was primarily to introduce new blood to the sport and to generate more public awareness to motor racing.
The go-kart facility, which was built at a cost of approximately $24 M, will be open to the general public from 3pm on Mondays-Fridays.
On weekends the facility will be open from noon and the cost to rent a kart will be just $1000.
