GMC TEST & TUNE EVENT HONOURS NIGEL CADOO

Written by on July 19, 2017

On Sunday 16th July 2017, the Grenada Motor Club (GMC) hosted the second of its four scheduled Test & Tune events for 2017, at the Pearls International Speedway. Fourteen local racers competed in their individual time bracket categories, using the opportunity to hone their skills and fine tune their vehicles whilst attempting to break their time bracket and personal best records, in preparation for the second annual International Drag Racing Event to be held Nov 17 – 19, 2017.

The Test & Tune events also allow competing racers the opportunity to amass more individual points towards their annual total, based upon which they will receive prizes and the recognition of their peers and the racing community, at the close of the year.

Fittingly the Grenada Motor Club (GMC) dedicated Sunday’s event to Mr. Nigel Cadoo, a motoring enthusiast, supporter of the club and a racing team member, who tragically lost his life on Sunday 9th.  July.

“The club’s decision to have this Test & Tune event named in Mr. Cadoo’s honour was fitting, as his support of the club and the sport was tremendous, he will be greatly missed.  The club is heartbroken and saddened by the news of his death, and we are committed to providing some level of assistance to the Cadoo family at this difficult time” said President of the GMC, Mr. Angus Dabreo.

All the participants at Sundays event agreed not to take any prize monies at this occasion so that these funds could be given in support of Mr. Cadoo’s mother.

Racers both on island and abroad are encouraged to register and participate as they keep in mind the GMC’s encouragement to “Drive on the Road, Race on the Track.”

Grenada Motor Club International Drags second annual event will be held on Nov 17 – 19, 2017.
