In providing a suggestion on the track, Jackson said, “Don’t build seating accommodation for thousands of people when you can’t attract them, use temporary seating in the meanwhile.”

She said that the progress of the track has displayed the Guyana government’s commitment to the development of the sport in the country.

“You have a facility that offers the opportunity for others to come in and support what you are trying to do,” Jackson said.
