T&T’s Boodoosingh coming for showdown with Jeffrey
Despite trailing Guyana and defending regional champion Kristian Jeffrey in the
points standing, Trinidad and Tobago’s Kristian Boodoosingh should be a formidable opponent at next Sunday’s final leg of the Seaboard Marine Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC).
Set to be staged at Guyana’s South Dakota Circuit, the Trinidadian speedster has been amongst the outstanding drivers in this year’s championship and lies second in the overall standings on 101 points, 82 points adrift of Jeffrey, who is in pole on 183.
Another Trinidadian Gerald Carrington occupies third on 58 points thereby setting the stage for a riveting conclusion to this year’s Series.
Boodoosingh, who like Jeffrey drives a Mitsubishi Evo, has proven that he is a class act and is not intimidated by the other guys on the grid and will no doubt be aiming to upstage Jeffrey on home turf, a task that been difficult for other competitors to do since the Guyanese made his debut last year.
The T&T Boodoosingh is no stranger to circuit racing and reports have it that he has been a consistent and accomplished performer in SCCA competitions in North America over the years.
He has already shown his skill and dexterity in all conditions, but who could forget his awesome display in wet conditions earlier this year at Bushy Park in Barbados when he and Jeffrey engaged in a smashing rivalry that had the fans on their feet.
However, Boodoosingh should expect fierce competition from drivers such as the older Jeffrey, Kevin, the experienced Andrew King, Barbados’ Mark Maloney and a host of other local drivers
With Trinidad and Tobago enjoying a handy lead in the country standings on 658, Boodoosingh and company will be determined to protect that advantage come Sunday.
In second spot is Barbados on 533 followed by host Guyana on 511, while Jamaica 369 and Cayman Islands 138 rounds out the standing.
Whatever the eventual outcome, fans can be assured that the Group 4 category will be as competitive as usual.
