T&T’s Golden Jubilee book features Motorsport, names icons

Marking Trinidad & Tobago’s 50th Anniversary of our Independence, the Golden Jubilee Edition of “Trinidad & Tobago – Terrific and Tranquil” publication includes features of T&T as diverse as our many cultures. The one feature that stood out for us here at TriniTuner.com is of course Motorsport. This two page feature included photos of recent rally, karting and drag racing events as well as circuit racing in its heyday at Wallerfield in the 80’s. The major accomplishment for local motorsport in this publication however, is the recognition of Sheldon Bissessar in the list of “50 Exemplars and Icons of T&T”, a list populated by great icons such as Pat Bishop, Rudranath Capildeo and Brian Lara.
