Jamaica lead points standings after first leg of motor racing c/ships

Team Jamaica made full use of their home turf and now sits atop the points table following the first leg of Caribbean Motor Racing Championships (CMRC) which was staged over the weekend at Jamwest Speedway in Westmoreland.

The hosts tallied 323 points with Guyana a distant second on 156 while Trinidad (126) and Cayman Islands (62) occupy third and fourth place. Team Barbados (nil) is in the cellar after their non-participation with three legs to go.

Team Guyana’s Kristian Jeffrey (Group 4), Stephen Vieira and Elliot Vieira (Super Stock Bike) were the daredevils responsible for Guyana’s points.

Jeffrey, the champion racer of last year’s event, dominated the competition, taking the checkered flag on all three occasions in the feature Group 4 category despite experiencing mechanical problems during the first race. He also piloted his Mitsubishi Evo 9 to the fastest lap (1m.08.785s) in race two.

Stephen (two wins and a second) and Elliott (one win and two second place finishes) had a great weekend on the saddles as they were the only ones to wave the checkered flag in the CMRC Superstock Bike class.

Stephen also recorded the fastest lap: (01m: 11.665s) for all the bikers.

Group 3 drivers, Rameez Muhammed (two second place finishes) and Affraz Allie (second and a third place) also chipped in for Team Guyana.

Chet Singh had problems since Saturday so he was out all weekend.

Fly Jamaica, Seaboard Marines and the Ministry of Tourism were the major sponsors for Team Guyana.
