Jamaica’s Peter ‘Zoom Zoom’ Rae, who will be piloting a turbocharged Mazda RX 7 at the season ending Seaboard Marine Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC) set for November 15, at the South Dakota
Circuit will be one to watch.
Rae is expected to lead a Jamaican team that has traditionally done well in regional racing on what is considered a favourite hunting ground for drivers from ‘Reggae Land’.
The Jamaicans currently lies fourth in the CMRC with 369 points and while the possibility of an overall title win seems a distant possibility, Rae and the other members of Team Jamaica will no doubt be aiming to end the year on a high.
While the full composition of the Jamaica team is yet to be known, Rae and female daredevil Natasha ‘Chiney Dolly’ Chang have already confirmed participation in the final leg of the championship.
Host Guyana with 511 points trails Barbados 533, while Trinidad and Tobago leads the Series on 658 points. The Cayman Islands remains in the cellar on 138 points.
Rae, who campaigns in Group 4, will have to be at his level best to upstage Guyanese Kristian Jeffrey, whose dominance in all three previous legs in Jamaica, Trinidad and Barbados has already made him back to back champion following his outstanding display on debut last year.
Jeffrey has so far amassed 183 points and he is followed by Trinidad’s Kristian Boodoosingh, who lies second with 101 points.
Third in the championship is Gerard Carrington of Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) with 58 points; 4th Jamaican (JAM) George Bayley 51 points; 5th is Barbadian (BAR) Stuart Williams 48 points and 6th Franklyn Boodram (T&T) 45points.
In the Seaboard Marine Group 3, Gary Barrett of the Cayman Islands has the lead with 138 points while Trinidad representative Paul Vieira sits second with 108 points.
Guyana’s Danny Persaud is down in third with 70 points, while fourth place is held jointly by Natasha Chang (JAM) & Kurt Thompson BAR) 62points.
In the CMRC Group 2, Marc Gill of T&T leads with 150 points and Barbadian Mark Thompson with 90 points is currently in second.
Jamaica’s Jordan Powell (75 points) is third ahead of Guyana’s Shiaraz Roshandin who has 61 points; 5th is Mark Williams (T&T) 55 points while 6th place belongs to Damien Nesbitt (T&T) with 52 points.
The Super-stock group has Guyana’s Stephen Vieira leading with 133 points, his cousin Elliot second with 119 points and Jamaica’s Robert McDonald third on 45 points.
Guyana’s Joel Neblett and Jamaica’s David Bell are tied fourth with 36 points while Guyana’s Matthew Vieira is 6th with 28 points.
