AN exciting day of racing is expected at the Palisadoes International Raceway in Kingston on Sunday, when it plays host to the sixth meet for the Jamaica Karting Association (JKA).

"Action will begin at 10:00 am with qualifying, moving into 4 rounds of racing for the day. All classes will be contested," Heather Eaton, JKA president, told Auto.

The 50cc class will see two new fresh faces, Ajane Haber and Paul Moodie. Moodie is son to Ishmael Moodie and grandson to veteran Peter Moodie Sr. 80cc will continue to be the battle of the Ryans as Ryan Lue attempts to get the upper hand on Ryan Chisholm. Rotax Minimax, is fertile ground for the future of local sports as it's filled with names familiar to any local motorsports fan, Gore, Summerbell and Moodie. These younger generation racer will have to try their best to beat the mark of the class, Justin Sirgany.

The other Sirgany, Joshua has moved his dominance to Rotax Juniors for 2014, while Rotax Seniors is the domain of Thomas Issa. Peter Moodie Jr will face off with Garth Genus and Ramon Pitter in Rotax Masters. Kart rides will also be available for $800.
