Reigning Group 2 champion Afraz Allie, speaking ahead of the Seaboard Marine Caribbean
Motor Racing Championship (CMRC) said he is hoping to grab the opportunity of competing against the best drivers in the Caribbean with both hands.
Allie, who is currently based in the USA, told this publication that judging from the report which has indicated that the Group will be fully subscribed he will have to be fully prepared in every department to have the edge over his rivals.
He revealed that the team has started work on his Toyota Starlet and they are hoping to get whatever little issues that the machine is having sorted out long before race day so as to get in valuable seat time.
“I am scheduled to arrive a few days before qualifying so right now it is up to my team of mechanics and electricians to ensure that the machine is in perfect shape for me to do well,” he stated.
He insisted that he has to be ready since word is that most of the guys have done significant upgrades so it has left him with no other choice but to follow suit.
He, however, was positive that they will be ready in time to allow him the opportunity to defend home turf against the anticipated invasion from Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago (T&T), Suriname and the USA.
Allie reckoned points’ leader in the Group Barbados’ Mark Thompson, Jamaica’s Kyle Gregg and locals Syed Hassan, Shairaz Mohamed, Chet Singh, Andre Dhanraj and John Joseph and T&T’s Yazid Ali as among the drivers who could pose a threat to his dominance, but according to him, they too will have to be on their game to impede his march to victory.
“The challenge is going to be great, but I welcome it because only by winning amongst strong competition could you feel truly rewarded.”
He extended thanks to the following sponsors for their support over the years and they include Banks DIH Ltd, Mohammed’s Enterprise, Ready Mix, Prem’s Electrical, Mike’s Copy Centre, Tulshi Machine Shop, Cellphonix, Clifton Auto Spares and Sales, Imran Electrical, Mohamed Haffiz – Mechanic and most of all his family.
