Ming wins F4 NACAM Championship Series
F4 driver Calvin Ming created history at the weekend, becoming the first Guyanese to win the NACAM Series at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit in Mexico City.
Ming recorded consecutive wins in races two and three in the final round of the series at the weekend, crowning an impressive performance in the series. He started off the weekend activities of the eighth and final round of the series on Saturday morning, by turning in the fastest times during the first practice session.
Ming then went on to later qualify and start race one in second position. However, he encountered some engine problems after leading the race for several laps, when it started losing power.
Having carefully calculated the various permutations, and being aware that he had a 55-point lead in the championship, the young Ming nursed the car to a fourth place finish, knowing that in this position, he would emerge as the champion of the series, irrespective of whether or not he participated in the two other races on Sunday.
However, the Guyanese won on Sunday to further cement his place at the top of the pile, thereby handing Guyana its first NACAM F4 champion.
