MOHAMED’S Enterprise has come to the rescue of the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club’s (GMR&SC) Ignite race meet.

With less than 24 hours before the event, the company has swooped in to sponsor the remaining races that had previously gone un-sponsored.

According to the club, the company has been an avid supporter of motor-racing locally, having chipped in at crucial times in the past.

A comment from the club officials stated that they continually have seen unwavering support from Mohamed’s Enterprise regardless of the event, and their input this time around is unquantifiable.

A comment from the company’s representatives stated that they value motor-racing heavily and their support comes from their love of the sport.

The company is home to Team Mohamed’s Enterprise, featuring the National Drag Strip record holder Godzilla, the unbeaten Nissan GTR its brother, the NISMO version.
