– junior karters set to become star attractions
The inclement weather had its say, but the competitors at last Sunday’s Guyana Motor Racing & Sports Club season opener never allowed the overcast conditions and several interruptions to affect their performances as they thrilled the fair-sized attendance to some nerve tingling excitement that clearly set the tone for a year of top class entertainment in the sport.
Rookie driver Mohamed Ali, of Team Fullworks, young Stanley Ming Jnr, Alexander Fiedtkou, Mohamed Roshandin, Carey Griffith,
Suriname’s Oliver Tjin-Liep-Shie and even Caribbean Superbike champion Stephen Vieira, who gave the crowd a free exhibition of his skills, all helped to make the day an exhilarating one for the fans.
Ali, who along with his brother Roshan has been the most dominant team over the past year, produced another overwhelming performance to stay unbeaten throughout the day and cart off the championship trophy, while Ming Jnr was also in irresistible form as he outlasted the opposition in some tenacious battles to end with the best record in the Shifter karts category.
The young brigade as they are frequently referred to displayed the daredevilry and skills that could very well see them become the star attractions during the year.
Their fierce rivalry was a sight to behold as Ming Jnr, Fiedtkou, Nikhil Seereram and Denzel Hopkinson stood toe to toe with their more illustrious counterparts in Stanley Ming Snr, Marcus Fiedtkou, Jerry Max Gouveia and Kevin Jeffrey and even upstaged them to some extent which has certainly set the tone for some interesting battles for the remainder of the season.
Meanwhile, Ali maintained his terrific form from last year and the manner in which he registered his victories in both the wet and dry conditions is a patent signal that beating him this year could prove just as difficult as last year.
This is a team that has also dominated the Endurance races, winning six consecutive titles, while it has been just as efficient in the Drag Meets.
Look out for more exciting performances from the members of Team Fullworks.
