Foreign influx for Georgetown Grand Prix Final Showdown
The GT Motorsports track will be converted into a battle zone on December 16 when the Georgetown Grand Prix Final Showdown is staged from 18:00h (6pm). Top Guyana karters will throw down the gauntlet to their foreign counterparts, with rivalry expected from Canada, Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.
Jamaica’s world-rated driver Collin Daley has been confirmed to race for the first time at the Georgetown Grand Prix in a direct showdown with Guyana’s top speedster Kristian Jeffrey in the Shifter Pro Cup. That head-to-head clash is set to be the showpiece of the night, with Daley looking to upset the hometown favourite.
Jeffrey of course has a legacy and record to protect, and hoisting the chequered flag is obviously his ultimate aim, regardless of the competition that is before him.
Trinidad and Tobago’s contingent will include Kristian Boodoosingh, Reza Ali (X30 Senior), Zachary Boodram (X30 Senior) and Enrique De Leon. While Boodoosingh has raced at the Georgetown Grand Prix before, it will be a first-time experience for his fellow countrymen, who would no doubt want to leave a lasting impression.
Barbados will be represented by Orry Hunte, who is set to make his second appearance at the event, while Darryl Timmers, making a return to GT Motorsports, will look to fly the Canada flag high on race night.
Boodoosingh, Hunte and Timmers will suit up for the Shifter Pro Cup, as well as local sensation Elliott Vieira. Other events billed for the night are the Sun Burst Kids Cup, 125cc Junior, 125cc Senior, Easy Cup Rookie, Easy Cup Light and Easy Cup Heavy.
At the end of the night, the overall champion drivers of the year of each category will be announced following the tabulation of their points from previous Georgetown Grand Prix events held earlier this year.
Admission to the venue is $500 for children, $1,000 for adults and $6,000 for VIP.
