2021 Endurance Championship Harper’s lust silverware
Kaieteur News – The 2021 car racing season is accelerating in just over a month with the first of two Endurance meetings set for the South Dakota Circuit, Timehri on January 24.
Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR & SC); the local authority on motor sport had published an indoor racing calendar in 2020 but only two of those events took place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first of those events was round one of the Endurance Championship which ended in tragedy after star Romeo Singh caught fire, and the second event was the National Race of Champions.
To this end, Dawulu ‘Afo’ Harper from Team Kinshasa has signaled her longing for the Endurance Championship with a more insatiable thirst for the Champion driver’s credit.
Harper competes in the 1600cc class and although he knows it will be difficult to overtake multi-time Champion Adrian Fernandes of Team Ramchand Wreckers, he has his heart set on picking up a 1600cc best driver trophy.
The experienced driver, who is yet to win the class, has come close to excitement with a couple of second- and third-place finishes.
However, Harper, sponsored by Smallville Apartments, One Stop Hardware, Dave Electrical, Chippy Body Work, Motor Trend Service Center and Golden Touch is hungry for success and committed to continuing to work towards his dream of being the best driver among his fellow competitors.
Although 2020 is a quiet year, ‘Afo’ has claimed that its Starlet is in good shape and will be turning high in time for round 1 of the Endurance Championship on January 24, 2020.
Harper, who also attends regular circuit racing in the ‘Starlet Cup’, expressed his brighter admiration of Endurance, stating, “Losing Endurance is not an option for me. I would rather sit out of the circuit race but my passion is for the Endurance. “
Following the meeting on January 24, round two of the Endurance Championship will be September 12.
On Feb. 14, drag racing will make a triumphant return to a South Dakota plot that has undergone tremendous work during the pandemic and records are expected to break on the smoother, more level surface.
The highly subscribed International Drag Race Meeting is set for August 15 and some keen competition is welcome with many drivers from Trinidad and Tobago already signing their interest to the GMR & SC of competing as soon as possible. (Calvin Chapman)
