Ming, Jeffrey, Daley Jr among Caribbean stars confirmed for second KFC Mega GP
Several leading Caribbean speedsters have been confirmed for the second KFC Mega Grand Prix, billed for December 16 at GT Motorsports.
In what is sizing up to be a showdown among the fiercest karters from around the region, the Guyanese would look to defend home turf in the final meet of 2018.
They will be up against drivers from Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica, who are also looking for glory on the Thomas Lands and Albert Street track.
Seasoned campaigners and the world-renowned pair Calvin Ming and Kristian Jeffrey, along with the experienced driver and go-kart technician Stefan Jeffrey will be blazing the trail for Guyana in the 125cc Senior.
Jamaica’s driving sensation Colin Daley Jr. is set for his second stint on the track, and would be keen to replicate the daredevilry he produced when squared off with Kristian Jeffrey at the Georgetown Grand Prix earlier this year.
Kristian Boodoosingh, the Trinidad and Tobago driver, is no stranger to the GT Motorsports track and he completes a star-studded field that is sure to conjure tremendous entertainment for fans.
No doubt, Daley Jr. and Boodoosingh would want to spoil the festive season for the Guyanese karting fans, but they would know, from experience, that such a task is not an easy one.
Of the quintet, Ming is set to make his debut on the GT Motorsports track, and that in itself is an interesting sub-plot that is sure to attract attention.
After the success of the inaugural KFC Mega Grand Prix on November 18, the organisers and sponsor are working on producing a better experience for fans. They are also keen on ensuring the on-track action is captivating, hence the assembling of a power-packed line-up of drivers.
The junior and upcoming racers are also prepping to take the grid, as they hunt not just glory, but also bragging rights heading into the 2019 season.
The likes of John Phang, Mikhail Persaud and Raymond Baksh would be out to defend their hometown record and step up the challenge posed by their adversaries.
The event, sponsored exclusively by KFC, and organised by Pure Racing in partnership with GT Motorsports and Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club, will speed off at 15:00h.
Admission to the venue is $1,000.
