Work and Play, foremost promoter of Motorsports, has revealed new plans for the future as they hosted their team and guests to mark the second anniversary of the group’s inaugural event.
Olumide Omolade, the coordinator of the group, said at the event in Lagos on Monday that Work and Play was the biggest movement in Nigeria’s motorsports industry while describing the anniversary as commendable.
Work and Play is a team of volunteers who share a common passion for driving growth in the Motorsports industry. It has so far hosted four different events across the country within three years.
“All the members of the team deserve to be celebrated as this is purely driven on passion to grow the sport and the economies around it in the quest to make Nigeria a better place. I am deeply honoured to be part of this,” he said.
The team hosted its maiden rally on May 27, 2017 in Shagamu, Ogun State where over 25 cars participated in the controlled rally where indigenes also participated in the bike race.
It hosted three other events thereafter, including the Ondo Rally of 2018 which was praised by the state government with Rotimi Akeredolu, governor of the state, and Michael Adeojo, founder of the Elizade Motors, squaring up in an exhibition race to crown the event.
Kebbi state also hosted the race last year.
Omolade also said the Monday’s event in Lagos afforded the group opportunity to assess their 2019 calendar where races have been scheduled to hold in Gombe and Lagos states.
“We will continue to push motorsports into new horizons this season. Some new cities will host the rally. Our plans are at the final stages and they will be unveiled soon,” he said.
