– King, Vieira to lead Guyana’s challenge
Local drivers and riders gearing up to participate in the opening event of the 2010 Caribbean Motor Racing Series in Jamaica on May 24 will have to return next week to get their machines shipped.
This is according to a close source, who told Kaieteur Sport that the delay was due to the incompletion of documentation that will allow the cars and bikes to be placed in containers for destination Jamaica where they will compete at Dover Speedway in the first leg of three in the Series with the second scheduled for Barbados, while the final one is slated for Guyana.
Those making the trip to represent Guyana are reigning local Group 4 champion Andrew King, who will lead Guyana’s challenge in the Caribbean event and he will be supported by brothers Mark and Paul Vieira along with Kevin Jeffrey.
Caribbean Super bike champion Stephen Vieira will lead the challenge in this category with support from Maurice Menezes.
Jamaica’s David Summerbell, who picked up his fourth Caribbean Series title last year, will no doubt relish home advantage, especially with the anticipated arrival of the Guyanese who did not participate in the Meeting.
Summerbell should have the support of countrymen Doug ‘Hollywood’ Gore and Jaleel Handal, but with the feared Mark Vieira, who missed most of the action last year back in the seat, things could be very interesting as the best in the region battle for supremacy.
Meanwhile, Stephen Vieira, who has shown remarkable improvement since last year seems to be getting more and more confident after his demolition of the best in the Caribbean in Barbados which was followed by the dethroning of nemesis Kevin Graham of Canada.
All in all, the opening salvo in the ‘Land of Reggae’ should set the tone for the rest of the year in Caribbean motor racing.
