CMRC: T&T racers locked and loaded for final leg
Trinidad and Tobago will be sending no less than five racers to compete in the final round of the Caribbean Motor Racing Championships (CMRC) to be hosted by Guyana.
In a recent Facebook post by Wallerfield International Raceway, it was disclosed that five cars have been loaded for shipment to Guyana for the November 10-11 International race meet, dubbed ‘Ignite’ at the South Dakota Circuit.
However, a source close to the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club told News Room Sport that an additional container is being loaded. But they are still uncertain about the exact number of cars and bikes.
Leading Group Three driver Ronald Wortman is on pole to win the Caribbean title. A Group which some fierce competition is expected will see the Mobil 1 sponsored Marc Gill making the trip and Haymet Singh making a maiden trip for Group One action. Talented speedster Kristian Boodoosingh will also be coming with a Radical and a vehicle to compete in Group Four.
Barbados, Jamaica and Team CAMS, as well as competitors from Europe are expected in for the two-day racing extravaganza. With 1,227 points in the provisional standings, Trinidad and Tobago is in a strong position to claim a third straight title, but the battle for the places is still on.
Barbados has 677 points, 200 more than at this stage last year, ahead of Jamaica (526pts), Antigua (205pts) and Guyana (196pts), which will field a strong home team.
