I feel ready for the meet and I know I am going to do well,” Khan told Chronicle sport, adding “I know there are a lot of people who are going to be coming for my crown, but I’m here to defend it,” he said.Khan continued, “ Preparation wise, I hadn’t to do much to the car; just basically service her up and ensure that all the lines are good and all the brakes and clutch and everything is ready and just drive.”He noted that while there are specific competitors he will be keeping his eyes on, he does not intend to take any battle lightly, adding that the competition in the class will be stiff this time around.Asked about the challenge between himself and Marlon Wilson in a West Demerara vs Berbice battle, he replied, “may the best man win,” adding, “I’ve seen him, the car is fast and If he gets in my class then it’s obviously going to be a battle, we are going to have to see who wins [next] Sunday.”Khan was tight-lipped about specifics on how he plans to dominate the competition come next Sunday but called on fans to come out and support his car # 20, while also heaping praise on his sponsors.They include A1 Auto Value, S/R Auto Spares, GFX Racing, Centre Spot Speed Shop, Shawn Auto Repairs, DANNY AUTO BODY WORKS, and his team Ajay and Sanjay.last_img
