‘Age is just a number,’ says Tramine Forde-Catwell


TENSION is running high ahead of this weekend’s International Race Meet of the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club, with team Barbados looking to upset the locals.One such competitor is Tramine Forde-Catwell, who has sent a strong message to the remainder of the field, ahead of this weekend’s Caribbean Motor Racing Championships, saying, “Age is just a number; I’m young but I know my talent.”
Forde-Catwell, who is no stranger to Guyana having been here thrice before, was speaking during a press briefing yesterday at the GMR&SC’s Thomas Lands facility.
“There isn’t really much preparation. We drove it the week before, it was ok, and just some slight tweaking for the atmosphere here. That’s about it. However, it’s working and I won’t have to do much preparation before the race meet.” He added. “Every year is different for me; this is my third year coming. I didn’t have much practice before the car went into the container, so we just want to get the car and get some practice.
Meanwhile Group Three competitors Shawn Eversley is not worried about his chances, though he has singled out a few competitors to watch on race-day, saying “Guys like Paul Vieira are very fast. Danny Persaud once the car is working is very fast too; so it’s just to work together and see if we can get some points.”
“As soon as we get the containers, we are going to get out there and feel the track, look to get a good qualifying position and look to finish all the races,” he continued.
Meanwhile, speaking on behalf of the remainder of the team, Kurt Seabra contended that Team Barbados are a well put together unit out to cause some amount of trouble come race day.
He predicted tough battles in the various classes including the Group Four two-wheel drive (2WD) where Mark Maloney will take on the best of the Guyanese as well as Trinidadian Franklyn Boodram and Jamaican Peter Rae.
The other members of the team are the Thompson brothers Kurt and Mark, who will be in Groups 3 & 4 and 2 & 3 respectively, as well as Steve King (3 & 4) and Kenrick Husbands (2 & 3).
