Summer Jamaican Motorsports review

The hot summer months brought sizzling action to race tracks across the island as competitors were at full steam in the disciplines of karting, circuit and dexterity in the months of July and August.

Dexterity

Rounds 5 and 6 of the Automotive Performance Centre sponsored national dexterity championship took place on July 8 and August 25 respectively. The first, dubbed “Driftmasters”, was held in the cool hills of Manchester at Master Block Factory in Knockpatrick, where a block making factory was transformed into a drifter’s playpen. Cleve “Cutta Hype” Ottey triumphed with the fastest time in his rear wheel drive, turbo-charged Toyota Starlet, whipping the crowd into a frenzy every time he changed to 2nd gear and shot over the hill unto the skidpad, all the time holding the car in a controlled slide!

Detailed report here: http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/auto/-Cutta–is-king_11931137

Maurice “Wurl Boss” Whittingham was finally beaten into 2nd place by Ottey, with Jamar Kinkaid in 3rd place. Tony Fu won the front wheel drive with limited slip differential class in his Team Challenger Toyota Corolla GT, Matthew Isaacs won the rear wheel drive class in his VW Bug, Richard Chan in the Excel Electronic Security Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV won the 4 wheel drive class and Kirkland Billings in a Nissan Sunny won the front wheel drive class.

The series then moved west for Slidelife, Gymkhana Reloaded, round 6 of the competition, staged at ATL Bogue City Centre in Montego Bay. On a Saturday night that saw the country spared the worst from Hurricane Isaac, the inclement weather still had some effect on the attendance, but bode well for the wetting of the course. Kingston resident Christopher “Teach” McFarlane took the spotlight at this event with a sweep of the top positions: fastest overall, fastest 2 wheel drive, fastest front wheel drive with limited slip differential and fastest in the championship run.

Whittingham took back the top position from Ottey in the Rear Wheel Drive with Limited Slip Differential class at this event, where Ottey slipped to third behind Kinkaid, as the St. Elizabeth youngster moved up a notch in the standings. Jordan Powell drove the ATL Unbeatable VW Polo to the win of the front wheel drive class, with Joel Jackson in the Jetcon Corporation  Mazda Demio 2nd and Kirk Excell in a Nissan Sunny 3rd in class. Following MacFarlane in the FWD with LSD class were Team Mad Dem Racing’s Ameer Johnson in a Toyota Corolla Levin and MacFarlane’s Stewart’s Auto Sales teammate and mechanic Courtney Wilson who shared the rally prepared Mitsubishi Lancer GT with his mentor.

Complete report here: http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/auto/Slip–Sliding-Fun_12382342

Whittingham continues to lead the overall dexterity championship points standings, with 4 more events to go.

Karting.

The Jamaica Karting Association also had two meets in the summer months. The first on July 15 and the second on August 19. Both events continued in the successful trend of the association that has seen close competition across several classes. Members of the Homestead Karting Club competed at the July meet and thoroughly enjoyed the Jamaican experience. Thomas Issa placed 2nd in the US Grand Nationals in the Rotax Jr class and has thus qualified to compete in the World Finals in Portugal in November. Notably also Justin Sirgany placed 2nd in the Rotax Micro class as Jamaican Karters gain prominence on the world stage.

August: http://www.jamaicaobserver.com/auto/Karting-action-heats-up_12336970

Circuit

The Jamaica Race Drivers Club moved its Independence meet forward to clear any possible clashes with the 50th Anniversary of Independence celebrations across the island, and held a one day meet on July 29. Traditionally the smallest meet of the year, the size of the crowd did not detract from the close competition on the track, as fierce battles raged all day between competitors Kyle Gregg and Alan Chen, Tarik Minott and Gary Barrett, Heath Causewell, George Bayley and Andre Anderson

Championship Tarmac sprint action will take place starting at 10am intermittently with properly coordinated ¼ mile drag racing between the sprint runs. A fast circuit track will be laid out that will bring out the best in circuit cars prepared for Dover Raceway, as this event is a good test of car setup ahead of the Heroes Day meet.  Expect to see a massive amount of cars turn out for this event as Dover regulars as well as rally/sprint contenders grace the high speed circuit and the tyre wrenching, fire belching high horsepower monsters come out to play thereafter.

Wet & Slide JMMC/MBMC dexterity #5

Photos by Omar Munroe, Blista Inc and Marlon Chin

The Jamaica Millennium Motoring Club (JMMC) brought the curtains down on its 2011 motorsports season when in association with the Montego Bay Motoring Club, they staged a successful Wet & Slide Dexterity #5 at the upscale Whitter Village Shopping Centre in Ironshore, Montego Bay on Tuesday, December 27, 2011.

The event got off to a 5pm start, with 27 competitors taking to the track laid out by clerk of the course Pernell Fitz-Coy. The tarmac surface was properly wet before each of the three single lap runs, with the competitors having a reverse grid for the 2nd run and then drawing numbers for the run order of the third. Before the two lap championship run, a 4×1 team relay was run with a merged Team Challenger/Mad Dem going up against Team Westslide in a best of three format.

Top Spot.

Ivan Lee driving the Team Challenger Garage Toyota Corolla SR5 “Blackbird” copped the fastest time of the event, posting a 1.20.78 in his 3rd run. Ivan had flown in from Mexico specifically for the event, and upset 2011 Overall Dexterity Championship winner Maurice “Worl Boss” Whittingham, the latter placing 2nd ahead of Cleve “Cutta Hype” Ottey in 3rd place.

Ameer Johnson in the Team Mad Dem Racing/Cars Rehab Toyota Corolla Levin rally car won the FWD LSD class ahead on Team Challenger’s Richard Chan in a Toyota Starlet.

Multiple Dexterity class champion Christopher “Teach” MacFarlane again copped the win of the front wheel drive class at the event and also won the class championship for 2011, driving a 2012 Mitsubishi ASX, ahead of Dean “Duct Tape” Corrodus in a Toyota Corolla and Kevin “Bruksport Racing” Watson in the fabric Smart Suzuki Swift GTi.

Garth Chin who hails from Kingston got the better of the Munroe brothers in their year-long battle in the rear wheel drive class. Driving a Mercedes Benz 190e, Chin posted a best time of 1.34.49 to outclass his rivals Shane and Omar who posted best times of  1.40.12 and 1.504.92 in similar Toyota Altezzas.

Championship run.

In the 2 lap championship run, Whittingham redeemed himself and won 1st place with a scorching 2.18.68, followed by team-mate Ameer Johnson in a time of 2.20.18 and Ivan Lee in 3rd place a shade behind in 1.20.85.
