GMR&SC Announce South Dakota Lap and Course Record Holders – News Room Guyana

The Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC) held its first-ever racing event earlier this month at the recently expanded South Dakota Circuit, which is now 1.6 miles long, enabling Guyana to host standard international racing.

“As with any brand new circuit or circuit of any kind, new lap records and course records would have been set over the course of this two-day event,” said the GMR&SC.

“These records are of the following two types: 1. Lap record – these are records set by each individual class and are only set during an official race. 2. Overall Course Record – this is a record of the fastest time ever recorded by a vehicle during an official session (practice, qualifying or race) on the track using only official timing equipment.”

Among the new record holders are father-son duo Mark and Matthew Vieira, Mark Williams, Kristian Boodoosingh and Danny Persaud.
