– Jeffrey moves ahead of Rae for second place
Both Jamaica and Barbados managed to reduce Guyana’s lead in the Caribbean Motor Racing Championship, but the latter still held on to its advantage after the second leg of the Series ended last Sunday, at Bushy Park in Barbados.
At the conclusion of the day’s event, Guyana with 124 points led Jamaica on 118 and Barbados still in the cellar on 83 as the countries now head into the final leg scheduled for November, at the South Dakota Circuit in Guyana.
It means that with the race for the title so close, the Guyanese will have to ensure that there are no slip-ups and all their main contenders for points are well prepared to do battle with the rejuvenated Bajans, who performed outstandingly at home on Sunday.
Guyana, who had started the day on 64 points, added a further 60 points, while Jamaica who tallied 56 after the first leg gained a further 62 and Barbados on 16 at the beginning of the day after a poor first round showing in Jamaica was the biggest mover after securing 67 points.
In the individual performance, Jamaican David Summerbell Jr. remains atop the category on 56 points after registering a first and two second place finishes.
He is followed by Guyana’s Kevin Jeffrey, who has 44 points after a first, third and fifth place finishes nosed ahead of Jamaican Peter Rae on 42 and another Guyanese Paul Vieira on 34.
The best performance of the day, however, came from Barbadian Barry Mayers, who smoked the opposition to record two firsts and a second, while Guyana’s Andrew King had a first, DNF and a third to move to 16 points after beginning the day on nought.
Mark Vieira failed to start in any of the races and he stays on 22 points.
Barbadian Mark Maloney is four points adrift of Paul Vieira on 30 points making the race for champion driver a close one which could be decided here in Guyana.
Canada-based Kevin Graham was unbeaten in the Superbikes division, while Guyana’s Stephen ‘Valentino Rossi’ Vieira shattered the 600cc lap record for the Circuit.
