Team off to Dakota


Share post:

Ten cars and one motorcycle left the island last night to represent Barbados in the final leg of the Caribbean Motor Racing Championships (CMRC) to be held at the South Dakota racing circuit in Guyana.
A formidable team will be led by the South Dakota and Bushy Park lap record holder Roger Mayers in the Chefette/Illusion Graphics/Valvoline Ford Focus.
He will be joined by the father and son team of Doug and Mark Maloney in their Paints Plus Audi Quattro, and Rockstar/RBC Mazda RX-3, respectively; Stuart Williams in his Williams Equipment Lotus Elise; Steve King in the King’s Auto Parts/Valvoline Nisan Skyline; brothers Kurt and Mark Thompson in their Glassesco/ KDJ Auto Parts/ Bio Beauty/Lucosade/NKM Clothing Honda Civic and Toyota Starlet; veteran defending Group 2B champion of South Dakota Kenrick “Snappa” Husbands in his Williams Equipment/Hilti/Johnsen’s Products Toyota Starlet; first-timer to South Dakota and unofficial BARL 2010 champion driver Edward Corbin in his Corbin’s Garage/
Kumho Tyres/Clarke’s-Auto, Toyota Starlet, and runner-up to Corbin, the young promising Jason Harewood in his Do-it-Best/Gaskin’s Garage/Castrol Toyota Starlet.
The lone motor cyclist is Brook Miller who will fly the Barbadian colours on a Suzuki GSXR 600.
Speaking to NATIONSPORTS at the Structural Systems yard where the cars were loaded into five containers, team manager Kurt Seabra said he was quite confident the Barbadian contingent would do very well in Guyana despite
not being in the running for either of the two titles up for grabs this year.
“The guys are very confident, and looking forward to doing even better than they did last year when we recorded our best year ever at South Dakota,” he said.
“A number of changes have been done to most of the cars which should make them more competitive. However, I expect great things from Edward Corbin and Jason Harewood who are making their debut in Guyana.”
