4-car Bajan team for CMRC


Share post:

Defending Group 2 champion Mark Thompson is in a four-car Barbados team in Jamaica for the opening round of the Caribbean Motor Racing Championship today at the Dover Raceway.
During yesterday’s qualifying, drivers were looking to secure the best possible grid positions.
Thompson will be at the wheel of the Stag Beer/Glassesco/Seaboard Marine/Champion Spark Plugs Toyota Starlet, and can expect able assistance from his brother Kurt, who will be driving a Honda CRX.
The other members of the Barbados team are the father and son combination of Doug Maloney, in the Paints Plus Audi Quatro, and his son Mark, in a Mazda RX3.
The Maloneys will face the best of the region in the CMRC group for the top-class drivers, while the Thompson brothers are pointed for Group 2.
Mark Thompson won the Group 2 title after making a clean sweep of the three races allotted to the group at the Guyana Motor Racing And Sports Car Club’s international event last year and ended with 107 points, ahead of Jamaica’s Sebastien Rae, the Jamaica Race Drivers Club 2012 champion, who picked up 81 points in his Walkerswood Mitsubishi Mirage.
Mark Vieira, Kevin Jeffrey and Andrew King were the pick of the Guyanese, but could not prevent Jamaica’s David Summerbell Jr from taking the driver’s title for the fifth time, with 61 points. He won from Barbadian Roger “His Hotness” Mayers, who had taken it in 2011, but missed this year’s action and ended with 30 points.
Jamaica are defending the country title with 137 points, followed by Guyana with 88 and Barbados with 74. The Cayman Islands ended with 37.
