CMRC: Team Barbados hoping to end well at South Dakota
Though out of the country championship title race, Barbados’ team manager for the Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC), Kurt Seabra, said his team is coming to Guyana to put on a grand show for the final round.
Trinidad and Tobago has accumulated 1,299 points, which is more than double the next team, which means they have essentially sealed their third consecutive CMRC country title.
Barbados is firm in control of second place with 618 points after the previous three rounds in Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and Bushy Park in Barbados.
According to Seabra, in an interview with News Room Sport, “We have never seen CMRC as a team championship. Our guys like racing and winning. That’s what they are coming to Guyana to do. It’s not only about points, but also visiting beautiful Guyana and putting on a great show for their race fans.”
For the Caribbean Radical SR3 Cup, Barbados is sending Stuart Maloney, Mark Maloney and Sean Maloney. Mark will also drive his Mazda RX3 in Group Four, while the Thompson brothers, Kurt and Mark, will battle in Group Two.
At the previous leg, Barbados was the top points-scorer. More than 20 local drivers contributed to the 527 points scored, moving Barbados from fourth to second in the country championship standings, with Mark Maloney the round three champion driver in CMRC Group 4.
The rest of the point standings puts Jamaica in third on 516, Antigua (206) in fourth and Guyana (196) in fifth. The final leg of the CMRC will take place on November 10-11 at the South Dakota Circuit.
