It is always a pleasure to write a message on Jamaica Observer’s Caribbean Motor Racing Championships (CMRC) Web Page, and to visit Guyana every November, to be a part of the now famous Championship Series. The event at South Dakota can well go down in history as one of the best ever, as Guyana will be staging the final leg of the 2011 CMRC series. This will showcase some of the most talented race drivers and motorcyclists to have graced this very famous race track.
The Jamaica Race Drivers’ Club has chosen five of their most competitive drivers to represent Jamaica in the three CMRC races. We expect that the Reggae Racers will return Jamaica to fame, by placing us on the top of the points standing enabling us to capture the coveted CMRC country title from Barbados, the current 2011 series points leader. With a vast lead in the CMRC Drivers Championship category, the several times Caribbean Champion “ King” David Summerbell Jr. has a good chance of continuing his winning ways to regain the title. I expect also, that our two experienced motorcyclists will give a good account of themselves.
Since the revival of the CMRC series in 2006 it has undoubtedly grown from strength to strength not only in terms of the increased number of competitors, but spectators as well. Consequently as one of its founding members, I implore all the clubs’ executives to continue the drive, thus ensuring its continuance and more importantly its development. As we look to the successful completion of this the 2011 series, and the commencement of the staging of the 2012 series in Jamaica, the JRDC remains committed to playing its part in realizing the full potential of circuit racing in the Caribbean.
Congratulations to the GMRSC, its executives and management team for staging this the third leg of the CMRC 2011 series. May the best competitors win their respective races, and the spectators enjoy themselves. For those spectators who are unable to attend, I’m happy that Jamaica Observer has come on board once again, as they did at the second leg in Barbados, and provide live streaming of the races to worldwide web audiences. We will be sure to open the pages of the Auto Observer for extensive coverage and post race analysis.
