The Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC) will begin their 2018 season with the Endurance Race Meet at the South Dakota Circuit today.
However, there are few changes for this meet following Friday’s meeting.
According to the GMR&SC’s official Facebook page, the event will see racers taking to the grid according to how they register.
Therefore, the first registered racer will begin the race in the first grid and so forth.
The GMR&SC has selected Cyril Angoy as the Clerk of Course for the event which will commence at 13:00h.
Motor racers are reminded that each car must be fitted with a working transponder as there will not be a system for recording laps without a transponder.
Each team will be allowed two drivers while the minimum time for driving is 30 minutes and the maximum 90 minutes.
Traditionally, drivers must be fully decked in their protective gear and a fire extinguisher must be mounted.
The GMR&SC reminded racers that if they are to be overtaken by a faster car, the competitor must keep their lane and allow the faster car the opportunity.
Points will be awarded to individual drivers and a championship points system will be implemented for the three endurance events to be held this year.
Points will be awarded for positions 1 to 10 being 25, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, and 1. A championship points system for mechanics will also be introduced at this event and the mechanic championship will cover circuit, drag and endurance racing. The mechanics points will mirror the drivers’ points.
