Driftmasters JMMC Dexterity #5


‘Cutta’ is king
BY JARMILA JACKSON Observer writer
Friday, July 13, 2012

WITH hundreds of fans cheering from the sidelines, it was the battle of the Toyota Starlets at the fifth round of the Jamaica Millennium Motoring Club’s 2012 National Dexterity Championship on Sunday.
In an event dubbed Drift Masters, 19 of the island’s top drivers took to an obstacle course set up at the Master Block Factory in Knockpatrick, Manchester, to face the ultimate test of car control.

Cleve ‘Cutta Hype’ Ottey emerged victor after a series of blistering runs becoming the first person to defeat reigning Dexterity Champion Maurice ‘Wurl Boss’ Whittingham since the start of the season. Only seconds separated the two.

“It’s a great feeling; I haven’t won an event in close to a year now. So I’m quite happy about it. Usually I’m more concerned with putting on a show than with winning, but this time it was about both. I wouldn’t say I was timing myself when I was out there, but if you know your car you can tell when you’re wasting time,” Ottey told Auto.
Driving his blue Toyota Starlet, Ottey conquered the highly competitive rear-wheel drive with limited slip differential class, clocking the overall fastest time of the day (1:38:79 seconds) and the fastest two-wheel-drive time on his second run of the course.

Maurice ‘Wurl Boss’ Whittingham, driving the Team Mad Dem Toyota Starlet, was a close second at 1:40:75 seconds just ahead of Jamar ‘Sckoolaz’ Kinkead — sharing Ottey’s Starlet — scoring a time of 1:42:56 seconds.

Sole competitor in the rear-wheel-drive class, Matthew Robinson Isaacs gave the crowd some entertaining spins in his Volkwagen Beetle while Kirkland Billings drove his Nissan Sunny to the top spot in the front-wheel-drive class.

Tony Fu (Toyota Corolla GT) and Richard Chan (Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV) were the sole competitors in the front-wheel drive with limited slip differential class and the four-wheel-drive class, respectively.

Dennis ‘Krossbreed’ Bicarie in his Toyota Starlet, and Ian Wright — competing in his Toyota Corolla for the first time — were also among the crowd favourites.
Just before Whittingham defeated Fu and Chan in the championship run, everyone from quad bikers, including a go-karter and a man with motorised bicycle, tried their hand at the course, much to the delight of the spectators.

As the evening drew closer, the ever entertaining Whittingham took to the course for a freelance run. Donning his Mexican wrestling mask he sped into the newly paved ‘skid pad’, twisting and turning around the cones before picking up his Team Mad Dem teammate Ameer Johnson — who stood dangerously close to the cones in the centre — mid 360. In the time it took to complete the spin, Johnson had taken over as driver, letting out Whittingham with the car still in motion, bringing the event to an exciting close.

June Jamaican Motorsports roundup

Two major historic achievements were recorded in the annals of Jamaican Motorsports for June 2012, when Jamaica’s second dedicated circuit racing facility at Jamwest Speedway in Old Hope, Westmoreland, had its first exhibition circuit event coupled with the third meet on the drag racing calendar on June 24, in addition to the first sanctioned championship event at the new Farmville track at Thetford Great House in Church Pen, Bushy Park, St. Catherine on June 17. The annual renewal of the Raynor King Memorial Rally on June 24 rounded out the activities for June.

Sprint championship

Round 4 of the Jamaica Millennium Motoring Club’s national sprint championship took place at the Farmville track at Thetford Great House in Church Pen, near Bushy Park, St. Catherine on Sunday, June 17. The event was extensively advertised using TVJ, Irie Social (Asafa Powell’s social media promotions company), the electronic media, thousands of colorful flyers distributed on motorcades and promotions at all preceding motorsports events. Regrettably, inclement weather was to affect his event, as after months of drought, mother nature provided soothing rain for a parched land on the day of the event, rendering what was billed as “Dirtmasters” into what was more accurately described as “Mudmasters”. Nevertheless, the nineteen competitors that took to the course in a variety of vehicles ranging from a 175cc dirt bike to a 2000cc turbocharged 4wd Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution certainly made the most of it.

King, Powell and Gore

Spencer Whittingham was crowned “The Dirtmaster” by virtue of his blistering fastest overall time of 1 minute 24.84 seconds set on his third run which also gave him the win of the JN8 class. The JA2 class was won by Daryl King, the JA3 class by Dean Corrodus, JA4 by Thomas Hall, the quad races by Lenin Thompson and the bike races were a clean sweep for Kyle Reynolds.

Circuit & Drag

The Jamwest Speedway in Old Hope, Westmoreland was abuzz with excitement on June 23 and 24. On the drag racing scene, American Stanley Albritton powered Dean Shaw’s 1,500 horsepower, methanol fed, supercharged V8 Chevrolet Camaro down the quarter mile to beat Bryn Morgan’s turbo charged V8 rail dragster for the win of the 8 second class.

Jordan Powell (R & B Auto Parts Toyota Glanza) and Ricardo Clarke (Big Rat Auto Toyota Corolla) took the inaugural wins of the two exhibition circuit races that were held. Competitors Peter “Zoom Zoom” Rae (Peter Rae Motorsports Mazda RX7), Dean “Duct Tape” Corrodus (Automotive Performance Centre Ltd Honda Civic Type R), Dean Shaw and Dieter Wilson (Amsoil Prochallenge trucks), Richard Chan (R&B Auto Toyota Corolla FX), Saeed Mohammed (Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution III), Peter James (Big Rat Auto Toyota Corolla) and Vivian Mitchell (MAD/Innovative Auto Parts Honda Civic Type R) were the first drivers to officialally test the new 1.8 mile circuit, and along with Douglas “Hollywood” Gore who drove his daily driven Audi A4 Coupe as the pace car, all gave rave reviews of the high speed track. Chief Steward and Jamaica Race Drivers Club (JRDC) scrutineer Rajendra Jadusingh also gave the track the thumbs up as safety features outlined by the Competition Sub Committee of the Jamaica Millennium Motoring Club were implemented to bring the track up to the specified safety requirements before its first official use. Since then, Marck Carey, president of the JRDC has visited the track and reports that television and photographs do not do the venue justice, as he was thoroughly impressed with the facilities, which include four large, covered spectator stands, restrooms that look like they came from a north coast resort, expanded parking areas, new admission booths and additional food vending areas.
