Persaud aiming for maiden CMRC win
By Avenash Ramzan
Superbiker Kevin ‘KP93’ Persaud is looking to cop his maiden win on May 21 when the opening leg of the Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC) is staged in Jamaica. Powering a Kawasaki bike under his customised KP93 brand, Persaud is aiming to compete in all four legs of the CMRC, with participation also in Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados.
Persaud is no newcomer to the Caribbean Championship, but he has failed to finish in the top three thus far. His best finish has been a fourth, but he is looking to rectify that this year.
He told News Room Sport that the bike is in fine condition and he is expecting a much-improved performance in 2017, providing everything goes according to plan.
Persaud ruled the roost at the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club’s National Race of Champions earlier this year at the South Dakota Circuit, winning all three races quite comfortably.
According to him, participation in that event was a test run for the Caribbean Championship, and he is quite confident of at least breaking into the top three at the CMRC, if not the chequered flag.
He is wary though of the competition that the likes of Bryce Prince, Stephen Vieira, Stephon Boodram and John Bennett among others will bring to the championship.
Persaud’s trip to Jamaica has been made possible through support from Palm Court, Chico Ramas Gas Station, Motor Trend, R. Ramlagan and Sons, R. Kissoon Contracting Services, Miracle Optical, Professional Key Shop and his father and mechanic Ganesh ‘Smelly’ Persaud.
