… Trinidad and Tobago retain Country title
ANDREW King is the King of the Seaboard Marine Caribbean Motor Racing Championships Group Four All-Wheel Drive class after being crowned Champion Driver Monday evening at the presentation ceremony.
King, who drives a Mazda Rx7 but opted to compete in the AWD class won ahead of Jamaica’s Kyle Greg and his Radical to ensure that a Guyanese holds on to the title lost last year to Jamaican Doug Gore.
In the Two-wheel drive class, many were powerless to stop Barbadian Mark Maloney from retaining it yet again. The Group Three class was always going to go to Paul Vieira who finished ahead of countryman Ronald Wortman.
Both Wortman’s and Vieira’s cars were shipped here but arrived late on Sunday on account of the shipping vessel encountering difficulties.
The Group Two Caribbean title was also retained by Mark Thompson of Barbados with 155.5 points ahead of the Trinidad trio of Daryl Ali, Luke Bhola and Bridget Singh.
On the Super Stocks, it was all Bryce Prince who railroaded the competition to take his maiden title and he looks set to continue next year.
Meanwhile Trinidad and Tobago retained their Country Championship title after blitzing the field for the year 2017. In spite of scoring just 50 points from the final leg, the Trinis were crowned champions by a considerable margin
