Full force at karting meet
THE Jamaica Karting Association's (JKA) second meet of the season returns to full strength at the Palisadoes International Raceway in Kingston, on Sunday.
The number of participating karts will be increased significantly as NG Racing rejoins the series after missing the season opener. NG Racing, led by past Abe Ziadie Memorial Trophy winner Peter Moodie Jr, maintains over 10 karts across the various classes.
"I think the highlight of the meet will be the Comer 50 class," Neil Williams, JKA vice-president, told Auto.
For this year, there have been slight changes to the rules for the class. One rule allows the karts chassis to be tuned to the tastes of each driver. This seemed to benefit Mattea Issa who took her first race victory at meet one in February. She'll be looking to repeat this performance.
The other class to watch is Minimax. While Justin Sirgany leads the class, he will find himself contending with Senna Summerbell, Tommi Gore, Mark Moodie and Duncan Stanley, who'll be making their class debut.
Senna and Tommi are the sons of David Summerbell Jr and Doug Gore, respectively. Mark is grandson of racing icon, Peter Moodie Sr.
As extra entertainment, Rae Racing karts will be made available for a fee during lunch for some fun racing.
