J’can Karters Ready For World Champs

Preparations have been completed and it is time for the pair of Jamaican drivers to execute their strategy at the World Karting Championship, which gets underway in New Orleans, United States, on Wednesday.

Thomas Issa departed the island yesterday and is expected to be registered for the event today, while 11 year-old Justin Sirgany, a student of St Andrew Preparatory, leaves on Tuesday.

“We are hoping for at least a podium finish. Justin’s preparation has been good. Just last summer, he qualified and competed at the US Grand National. He has proven to be very competitive,” Justin’s father, Steve, told Automotives.

Justin, who is also preparing for the 2014 GSAT exam, has developed a knack for upsetting the apple cart. He takes to the track in the Rotax Mini Max Class later this week.

“This is sort of a new experience for Justin, but he is a good driver, and we expect him to do well. We know he has the skill,” commented Neil Williams, president of the Jamaica Karting Association.

Weighing in on Issa’s chances, Williams stressed that this is the best he has ever been prepared. “Last year, he made some tactical errors at the world finals in Portugal. That has been corrected. He is fully prepared, in top form, and is expected to do extremely well,” said Williams.

Last Sunday, former world go-kart champion, Ben Cooper, spent the day with Issa, giving him a pep talk and pointers about racing strategies. “His preparation was good,” said Thomas’ father, Christopher Issa, a retired race driver.

Sirgany and Issa will be among some 288 drivers from 67 countries, who will be battling for supremacy in four classes.

Rally Jamaica soldiers on

Friday, November 08, 2013

RALLY Jamaica 2013, the second largest rally event in the Caribbean, is experiencing a bumpy ride ahead of its November 29 to December 1 run dates.

“Things have not been as smooth as I’d like, but we have a rally to put on,” said event organiser Lawrence Henriques of Rallysport Promotions Limited.

Joel Jackson will attempt to capture his first ever National Rally title

Henriques is facing challenges attracting the sponsorship. Rally Jamaica was recently bolstered by its inclusion as the final round of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile’s (FIA) North American Central American (NACAM) Rally Championship. And given the potential for large-scale international exposure, the overall response has been less than expected. He chalks it up partly to the difficult financial climate.

So far, Rally Jamaica will see a large contingent of overseas teams, five from Trinidad, two from Barbados, and eight NACAM regulars including the series leader Ricardo Trivino. And for the first time, foreign competitors may outnumber locals.

Up to press time, only seven entries were confirmed including the driver leading the local rally championship Joel Jackson.

Rally Jamaican 2012 winner Jeffrey Panton is also on that list.

Among other difficulties arising is construction on one of the signature stages, Lydford.

“The airstrip has been removed in preparation for construction related to the Highway 2000 project and we’ve had to adjust the route,” explained Henriques.
