The event — dubbed the Caribbean Invasion of Speed — is scheduled for May 26 and 27 at the Dover Raceway in St Ann. It will be the first round of the Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC) and will see four countries vying for the 2012 title.
"I like to thank the competitors here and abroad for their participation," said Marck Carey, president of the Jamaica Race Drivers Club. Carey also used the opportunity to also thank the sponsors.
The event will see Andrew King and Harold Hopkinson representing Guyana; while Mark Thompson, Kurt Thompson, and Stuart Williams driving under the Barbados flag. Junior Hyde and Andy Bodden will compete for the Cayman Islands.
David Summerbell Jr, Peter Rae, Kyle Gregg, Andre Anderson Chris Campbell and Allan Chen are all up for contention to representing Jamaica.
With the revised rules, Douglas Gore with Audi TT-R DTM also stands to represent the island.
"I feel good about being able to participate in the meet," said Gore. The reliability of the Audi is key to collecting points towards the CMRC for Jamaica."
The Audi showdown between Gore and Barbados' Doug Maloney's Audi Quattro will not be happening as Maloney will not be making the trip. Also missing is the 2011 defending champion, another Bajan Roger Mairs.
