Witness exciting go-kart rivalry tonight when the Caribbean’s best transform the GT Motorsport Track into their personal shifting battleground for supremacy.
The most highly anticipated clash of the evening ‘GT Final Showdown’ for 2017 will be between Jamaica’s Collin Daley Jr. and Guyana’s ace driver Kristian Jeffrey. Jeffrey has labeled Daley Jr. as the number one karter in the region and has predicted that the lap time will be broken this weekend.
It’s a head-to-head showdown that Daley Jr. is anxiously looking forward to. “I’m really excited because you know he’s a very good driver and I think it would be good racing; good for the spectators, good for everyone, get people more involved in motorsport in the Caribbean and I hope we have clean racing and just have fun,” Daley Jr. shared.
Earlier this week, Jeffrey spoke of the impact Daley Jr’s presence has had on the event.
“I think because of Collin coming everyone’s been more alert and ready. Timmers came four days early to put in the time and even the local guys are much faster; everyone is within lap record times already, so we’re going to see the lap record being shattered this weekend if the weather holds up and fans should come out and support our local drivers,” Jeffrey predicted.
The Georgetown Grand Prix Final Showdown starts from 18:00h at GT Motorsports on Thomas Lands and Albert Street.
Among the categories to be contested are Easy Cup Rookie, Easy Cup Light, Easy Cup Heavy, 125cc Junior, 125cc Senior and Shifter Pro Cup. Admission to the venue tonight is $1,000 for adults, $500 for children and $6,000 VIP.
