Race Report from RCMOTT - Joseph Ramoutar:
On Sunday 12th March 2017 we hosted our annual off road national event a 5 part series.
Sunday was our first off road nationals for 2017 and as we can all say it was HIGH OUT from start to finish.
The maintenance to the jumps had you guys HIGH OUT some even out the track but in all we had a great time. It was good to see everyone helping one another and even the young ones had the older guys laughing by making jokes and even marshaling when they could.
At the end of the first round of nationals Akeel Ali the defending champ of 2016 had some problems which were unforeseen,and seeing this opportunity 10 years old Zameer Ramoutar capitalized on this to finish in 1st place and also getting TQ for the event. But it didn't stop their Steven Hosein who is taking some time off from circuit racing this year to focus more on RC after his experience at the 2016 IFMAR World Championship at Las Vega,finished in 2nd place and said that it wasn't easy keeping up with the young star. Finishing in 3rd place is Yosef Baboolal who had a really rough year in 2016. But said that he is determine to do a lot better this year.
We must not forget the 3 new young stars who have started this year with us Jarod Johnson, Nafees Mohammed and Amir Fonrose. These young star had the season drivers watching their back because any mistake and they were right their for the pass. Keep up the good work and get more practice you all are the future of the sport.
RCMOTT will like thank everyone for coming out on Sunday and hope to see you at the next off road event on 2nd April 2017.
