Text by Dean Corrodus

This will be a December to remember for Jamaican motor racing fans, as the 2011 season comes to a close, there is a flurry of activity on the local scene that’s reflective of a sucessful year and indicative of an even wider reaching 2012 season.

An examination of the event flyers for the 7 events slated to be held between November 27 and December 27 shows that Jamaican motorsports entertaiment is probably at an all time high. On Sunday, Novemeber 28, Jamwest Raceway located in Old Hope, Westmoreland, Jamaica’s only purpose built drag racing facility, will be the venue for “Rise of the Machines 4”, the 5th and final drag racing event of the year. It doesn’t stop there however, as the track owner Ian Gordon has been busy carving out a circuit track on the property, which has already been marled and rolled to form a rallycross racer’s dream circuit, incorporating the ½ mile drag strip with a wide, fast circuit track that is sure to see thrilling battles when complete.

The event starts with qualifying on Saturday, November 26, with alias’ such as Bad Oil, Damage, Puffy, Alpine, Buju and Likkles slated to be on track for a final tire burning showdown on the 1320.

JMMC/Just Bet/Advance Performance Parts/Petcom Tarmac Rally #1

Cool, cool Mandeville, capital city of Manchester, was the venue for the staging of the first tarmac rally for 2011 on Sunday, May 29. The Jamaican countryside is known for its winding roads, lush greenery and hospitable people and the normally sleepy, mid island town lived up to that reputation very well. This rally had only eight entrants, and for most superficial rally fans, not worth the trip, but for the diehard motorsports enthusiasts, it presents an opportunity for a “road trip” filled with laughter, an eclectic combination of foods and most importantly, eye candy of all types, from the beautiful flora and fauna to the cars being expertly maneuvered through the twists and turns but inches from your toes. The look of wonderment in the children’s eyes as the cars pass is priceless, they having never had their sleepy village woken with the sound of loud exhausts and the flash of cars driven at the highest speed possible in the twisty corners.  The sidelines erupted into – “Yes man, Alan a move, yuh hear di turbo” or “baxide Matthew a gwaan tiday doa”. For me, the commentary from the sidelines at any motorsports events is almost as entertaining as the cars and on some days, even more.

Undeniably, this rally belonged to Alan Chen/Marcia Dawes, with their turbo charged Toyota Corolla SR5, and so it should, as Alan is most comfortable in a rear wheel drive car and the hills of Mandeville are his stomping ground. He probably knows every inch of the Melrose Hill stage intimately. The Chen/Dawes duo finished with an overall time of 17 minutes 23 seconds, which included a donut in the middle of the Melrose Hill stage, which both frightened and pleased the fans immensely.

He was followed by Sebastian Rae/Rameses McGregor with an overall time of 17m.27s. in their Mitsubishi Mirage which one normally sees at Dover. On what is thought to be his first rally, Rae roared through the hillside with his JA3 classified car making quick work of the twisty corners and appeared determined to leave an indelible tyre track wherever he went.

Another rear wheel drive expert, Maurice Whittingham, chose to leave that type of weapon at home and field a front wheel drive Toyota Levin in the JA2 class, and was 21 seconds behind the leader with an overall time of 17m.45s. He drove very clean lines with very little of his usual flamboyant, crowd pleasing drifts and slides through the corners. One could hardly blame him, as with a sheer rock face on one side and a plunging precipice on the other, it was advisable to keep it straight. Pity no one sent that memo to Mr. Chen though. Based on the comments heard at the fast right/left switchback across from the bar on the Old Melrose Hill special stage where the spectators gathered, (“doan stan up dehso, Whitty chuck aaf eena di bush right dehso few years back”) it still amazes me the stories and memories that are related on a rally stage, whilst waiting for the next competitor.

The team of Matthew Gore/Raymond Farquharson, a crowd favorite, suffered driveline breakage on special stage 3 before lunch, and his crew could be seen feverishly working on the car to get it back on the road to finish the rally – “Bwaaay, Matchoo a guh hard star, him need some a dem strong axle wha come fram farin”. Luckily for them, Toyota parts are easily procured even in sleepy Mandeville on a Sunday and very quickly an axle was found and installed and he was back in the event. The manner in which he came through the switchback with “blood innah him eye” trying to make up for the time lost, was amazing. They finished fourth overall with a time of 17m.53s. Gore is the reigning Rally sport champion, and it is very clear that he intends to retain the title in the Team Mobay Racing camp.

The real star of the show, was actually the 7th placed contender, in “Rusty” piloted by the pair of Troy Bernard and Roger Brown. “Rusty” hails from Montego Bay and is usually seen at Spot Valley, however they ventured into the Rally arena for the first time to encouraging cheers as he passed through the stages and the shouts shall echo in my ears for a while to come – “Gwaan, Rusty – yuh look pap dung but di engine a run!!” I want to add, Rusty was driven from Montego Bay and back – “No wrecker roun ere!” Well done to Troy and his crew. There is an old adage – “to finish first, one must first finish” and indeed “Rusty” finished his first rally with an overall time of 20m.34s.

Mandeville Rally was “likkle but tallawah,” and a great time was had by all. The awards ceremony was held at KFC Mandeville and the victorious home boy Alan Chen took his machine out on the streets and gave an impromptu drifting display complete with smoking tyres for the large Sunday evening crowd which had gathered in the street.

Raynor King Memorial Rally Report

JMMC Hosts First Successful Stages Rally of the Year

 

 

 

After many painstaking months, the Jamaica Millennium Motoring Club successfully staged the Raynor King Memorial Stages Rally in the cool hills of Lydford in the parish of St. Ann.  The numerous uncertainties brought on by the worldwide recession has severely affected motor racing in Jamaica, most noticeably, Rallies.  Normally held in the parish of Westmoreland, the Raynor King Rally has been one to look forward to in recent years. 

The King family with a strong background and presence in motor racing, has contributed tremendously to the sport and was not forgotten as relative Richie ‘Sir Rich’ Rerrie and son of Raynor, Daryl King were active amongst the competitors in the event.

The initial disappointment of the low competitor turnout of ten entrants was soon forgotten as the morning stages were brilliant in the St. Ann sunshine and the afternoon dialed in seasonal rain and more excitement to the day’s activities. 

 

Sir Rich in a Class by Himself

Richie Rerrie, the sole representative of the JA8 class was undoubtedly the fastest machine in the event.  Driving his popular KIG/Puma/Leroy’s Auto Glass sponsored Subaru Impreza WRX Sti, nicknamed Trauma, with co-driver Winston Dawson; finished atop the standings with an overall time of 31:15.997 after eleven stages.

Natasha Chang was the next fastest and winner of the JN8 class with an overall time of 35:02.261. Natasha, driving her Tropical Battery/Goodyear/Forza sponsored Mitsubishi Evolution 5, was accompanied by Mathew Gore the emerging international driver for Liquid Lightning energy drink.

Two other four wheel drive entrants (Salvador Solis/Nigel Lyn and Noel Sloley/Dorian Dolphy) were unable to complete the event.

 

 Jordan Powell in control in 2WD

Jordan Powell, with co-driver Gina Tomlinson were the fastest pair in the two wheel drive class, as well as class winners in the JA2 class.  Jordan, driving his Goodyear/ Gunk/Lloyd’s of Montego Bay/Performance centre/Add-Vantage Auto Parts sponsored Toyota Corolla FX finished with an elapsed time of 35:27.588 to also claim 3rd fastest overall.

The two wheel drive competition was however, not meager for Jordan, as defending drivers champion Thomas Hall representing the JA4 class in his Xsomo/Sunoco Fuels/Advantage Performance Parts sponsored Toyota Turbo Starlet, was hot on Jordan’s heals the entire day winning his class and claiming fourth overall.  Also, Dean ‘Duct Tape’ Corrodus with co-driver Pernell Fitzcoy in their Tropical Battery/Kumho Tires/Performance Centre/Add-vantage Auto parts sponsored Honda Civic Type R were only able to win the JA3 class and take honors for 5th overall.  Dion ‘Babybomb’ Gardner, with co-driver Julian Gordon evidently had car issues in his Petcom/Autosource sponsored Mitsubishi Mirage, rounding out the top six.

Hope for More to Come

Now that the proverbial camel is now off the JMMC’s back, and the worldwide recession seems to have peaked, we hope to see at least one more rally and two sprints before the premier Rally Jamaica 2009 to be held on the first weekend of December.

This event was made possible by the efforts of Xsomo International, KFC, True Juice, Bay Wata, Tropical Battery and CVM
