After winning the Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC) title in his debut season, young motor racer Kristian Jeffrey made himself a strong candidate for Sportsman of the Year by virtue of his outstanding performances.
Jeffrey, who drives a Mitsubishi Evolution VIII, returned from Canada where he currently resides to represent Guyana in the regional championship and proved beyond the shadow of a doubt his undeniable class as he raced to the prestigious title, beating his more established counterparts from the rest of the Caribbean in an impressive display of daredevilry.
The former Squash standout was in a class of his own in the opening leg of the Series in Barbados, racing to three wins from as many starts to head to the second stanza in Trinidad and Tobago with a handy lead.
Despite suffering mechanical issue during the races, he still battled to crucial championship points and returned on home soil eager to give the local fans a real treat and a glimpse of his class and emerging ability amongst the best drivers in the Caribbean.
Jeffrey did not disappoint, carting off two of three races to be declared the overall winner in the individual category, while also gaining valuable points for Guyana which enabled the ‘Land of Many waters’ to retain the Country title.
The soft spoken athlete is a natural talent, an endowment conceivably gained from his father and mother Denise, who was a former Squash champion as well.
Jeffrey’s remarkable achievements on the regional circuit facilitated his selection to race against some of the best drivers in the world last December when Barbados hosted the ‘Race of Champions’ Meet, at the refurbished Bushy Park facility.
It is a testimony to his skill and ability and other contenders will be hard pressed to match or even surpass his accomplishments for 2014 so he is clearly in pole position when compared to other candidates.
