Jeffrey, Tenpow, Persaud rule Georgetown Grand Prix


By Avenash Ramzan

Kristian Jeffrey, Jeremy Tenpow and Mikhail Persaud had a love affair with the chequered flag on Sunday, securing unblemished records in their respective category at GT Motorsports’ Georgetown Grand Prix.

The trio was simply unstoppable in their events, rising above the challenges posted by their respective competitors to walk away with the maximum number of wins.

Jeffrey, by far the most experienced driver on show, had to dig deep into his reservoir of knowledge and expertise to stave off the challenge of cousin Stefan Jeffrey and Steven Nobrega in the Easy Cup Super.

The three drivers put on a show for the Sunday afternoon crowd, with three closely fought races that tested their mettle. K. Jeffrey prevailed in all three races to cop the champion driver accolade, while Nobrega got two seconds and a third, and S. Jeffrey finished with one second and two thirds.

2017 Sun Burst Kids Cup champion Jeremy Tenpow of Pure Racing continued his dominant showing, brushing aside the competition in all three 60cc races, leaving perennial rival Nathan Rahaman to settle for second on all three occasions.

Jeremy’s brother Justin copped two third place finishes, while Paige Mendonca, the lone female competitor, took third in the first race.

Persaud ruled the 125cc Senior category, taking the chequered flag at the end of each race, which made him an automatic choice for champion driver. Matthew Phang finished second in all three races, while Raymond Baksh, Kristian Boodhoosingh and Zachary Boodram got a third place finish each.

Other champion drivers of the day were Ben Phang in the 60cc Baby Cup, Rayden Persaud in the 125cc Juniors, Shan Seejatan in the 125cc Masters and Dharmendra Dharmo in the Easy Cup Rookie. (See tabulated results below)
