Guyana’s Kristian Jeffrey currently holds a handy 25-point lead in the Radical Caribbean Championship (RCC) after two rounds at Bushy Park, Barbados.

Action has moved to the Frankie Boodram Wallerfield International Raceway, Trinidad and Tobago, and for Jeffrey to add important points to his tally, a lot will depend on how he performs against Barbadian Zane Maloney.

The 19-year-old Maloney, who did not participate in the first two rounds, is the current F3 Vice-champion and Rookie Champion and is expected to be the new man to beat in the championship.

Powered by Torginol Paints, Jeffrey, in an interview with News Room Sport upon arrival in Trinidad, said racing against such caliber of competitors pushes him to bring his ‘A-Game.’

“Having that high caliber of the driver and even throughout the field is always good, that is what competition is about, it only gets you stronger and better; it makes you bring out your A-Game”, Jeffrey expressed.

Jeffrey is hoping his car can continue to be efficient as the earlier rounds, and he plans to challenge for the win if he gets enough power.

This round was initially slated for Barbados, but the move to the twin-island republic has seen teams from Guyana, Barbados and Jamaica being greeted with a wet Frankie Boodram Raceway, Wallerfield. Still, the locals are expecting a change in conditions over the weekend.
