Calvin Ming continues to keep Guyana’s flag flying winning his first two Formula 1600 races in succession to begin his 2016 season driving for the K-Hill Motorsport team in the Sebring Florida Atlantic Championship series.
The young Ming is rapidly putting Guyana’s motor racing on the map in North America pioneering his entry into Formula 1600 and Formula 4 to build a single seater racing career; having raced as Guyana’s Go-Kart Champion virtually unbeaten for a number of years and winning on the Go-Kart circuit in the US before graduating last year to Formula Racing.
In December, last year, Ming, in his first Formula 4 Championship Race in the Norteamerica, Centroamerica, Caribe y Norte de Sudamerica (NACAM series) in Mexico, won the best Rookie driver award, placing 9th and then 7th in the qualifying round of the competition and going on to finish 4th in his first Formula 4 Championship Race.
Last month, Ming, took on and conquered the cream of Caribbean motorsport at the Bushy Park, Barbados, international race circuit’s introduction of the single seater Suzuki Radical Championship series where he demolished his competition whilst breaking the lap record previously held by Barbadian Champion Driver, Sean Maloney, in a practice session.
Ming is currently in Mexico with his manager and dad Stanley, preparing for the 3rd of the Formula 4 NACAM Race Series and then on to compete in a Go-Kart Championship in North Carolina.
He will return to Barbados to compete again over the May 7th-8th weekend in the Suzuki Challenge Series Swift Cup which will feature in the Barbados Festival of Speed in celebrating the Island’s 50th Anniversary of Independence.
The Barbados Festival of Speed will attract international attention with World Champion Formula 1 driver, Lewis Hamilton participating at the wheel of his Formula 1 Grand Prix car. It is expected that a large contingent of Guyanese motor racing fans will travel to Barbados for the event and that arrangements are in train for a charter flight to make this possible.
Meantime, speculation is rife that Hamilton may decide himself to race in the Suzuki Challenge Series Swift Cup.
