MONTEGO Bay's iconic sprint track, Ironshore will host the Montego Bay Motoring Club's (MBMC) Screaming Streets: Revenge this Sunday.

The club's second sprint event, action is slated to start at 10:00 am.

"We have an exciting line-up, including Doug Gore," Mark March, MBMC president, told Auto.

The sprint will run its usual format, three chances at the course for each competitor and then a longer championship run consisting of the top 10 fastest cars regardless of classification.

"We might have a small local drift exhibition for the spectators," added March.

The revenge in the event title is key for Dean Corrodus, who is keen to extract his vengeance on the infamous Ironshore curbs that claimed him as another of its many victimsâ during the last Sprint's championship laps. Up until that moment, Corrodus was the fastest driver on the course by some margin.

"I don't see it as a loss. I won my class, fastest two-wheel drive, and fastest overall time, so three out of four is a great win," Corrodus said.

His aim is to have a clean sweep of all four of the top categories and adding a championship run victory. Hoping to upset his goal, however, are the Gore brothers -- Matthew and Doug. Matthew inheritedâ the championship run win when Corrodus retired at the last minute, while Doug will be making his debut in his new rally prepared Honda Civic.

"I'm not really worried about Dean. My target is my brother," said Matthew Gore.
