WITH the homestretch in sight for the upcoming Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club’s Endurance race meet this weekend, plans are on stream according to one executive member.GMR&SC executive member Paul JiwanramPaul Jiwanram, one of the committee members on the Executive of the GMR&SC, told Chronicle Sport that things are basically set for the event.“As it sits, we are almost complete in getting together all the necessary requirements for the hosting of this Sunday’s Endurance,” he said.“It’s basically some minor matters that need to be done like the transportation of the trophies, and tiny logistical stuff but all in all, nothing that should take more than a half-day to complete.”There is no cutoff date for entrants to be registered for the event but Jiwanram urged early sign-ups as there are benefits to that.“We are encouraging early sign-ups because we are gridding persons based on when they sign up; basically a first come, first served basis so the earlier you sign up, the better your chances of being placed on the front row or first few rows.”He noted that up to press time yesterday, 15 teams had already signed up in various classes and in both cars and bikes.In the first class, cars up to 1500cc will be considered eligible, with the second class being from 1501 to 1600cc. The third class will see cars in the 1601-2000cc class with the unlimited class featuring cars over 2000cc.Bikes will run in one class and teams will be charged $5 000 to register.
Jasmina Tinjić, who plays for a prize fund of 50.000 dollars, opened the tournament in Quanzhou, in China with the results 2:1, per sets (6:7, 6:3, 6:4).The best B&H female tennis player won against the local tennis player Ran Tian, who is 818 in the WTA list. According to Jasmina, the process of adaption with the time difference was difficult.“Now that I am adapting with the zone changes, I believe that I will be more confident in the upcoming matches. Weather conditions for the game were not ideal. It was very windy, but I managed to win the game despite losing in the first set. I believe that I will play much better in the second round, but the goal remains the same, at least semi-finals”, said Tinjić, who will play the next match on Wednesday morning.(Source: Klix.ba)
