JAMAICA Race Drivers Club (JRDC) has fully endorsed JamWest Speedway in Westmoreland as the venue for high-level motorsports after a successful running of the season opener on March 3.
The JRDC, established in 2003, organises and promotes motor racing in Jamaica.
"It was very exciting in pockets, a side effect due to the small number of competitors on hand but whenever there was action on the track the crowd loved it," said Christopher McFarlane, JRDC president.
One of the main aims in holding the JamWest event was to ensure the venue was capable of hosting motor racing at the highest standards. The location was able to safely accommodate over 3,000 patrons on hand to witness the day's battles.
"We were able to have safe high-speed, side-by-side racing, and I think that has answered any of the circuit's detractors," McFarlane told Auto.
The JRDC is now focused on their major meet Carnival of Speed at Dover Raceway in St Ann on Monday, April 1.
"Dover will go back to being a two-day format. Qualifying on Sunday to give us some leeway for racing on Monday. After that, we will then look full speed into how we will return to JamWest," he said.
