TTKA Kart Racing – 3

Racing resumed at Arima Race Club car park with warm weather conditions and dry track conditions, resulting in some of the fastest lap times clocked so far this season.

The anticipation was high for both spectators and drivers as the qualifying round posted some blistering times , notably, Enrique De Leon (Minimax), Amir Mohammed (Rotax Junoir), Gerrard Carrington ( Rotax Masters), Bridget Singh ( Rotax International).

Cadet Class saw the young Frankie Boodram take full points on the day, winning all three heats , followed by Mathew Phillips and 3rd Rossi Lochan.
In the Minimax class, it was Enrique De Leon taking the spoils of the day all his heats followed by Jonmycal Sant in 2nd .

The new Rotax Junior class was nothing short of exciting. The consistent and hard working Amir Mohammed came 1st overall and it should be noted his laptimes dropping throughout all 3 heats, Nicholas Madden took 2nd , keenly followed by Tye Carrington.

The 100cc class is fast becoming the class to keep an eye on , due to some of the “hair raising” driving by all its entrants. It was early in free practice when Shane Pinhero lost his engine and due to the generosity and sportsmanship of the Carrington Race Team, lent Shane of there spare engines to compete. This set the stage for Shane and Che Carrington to set the track “on fire” battling one another for the lead and gapping the field. Shane and Che showed their superiority , but alas Shane refused to buckle under Che’s relentless pressure. SHane placing 1st , Che 2nd and a brilliant showing by Christopher Sukhbir having to fight the other drivers for 3rd place on the podium.

There was a new addition to the Rotax Masters class, Ryan Peyreu, the 2011 Rotax International champion. This meant the blindingly fast Gerard Carrington would have to be on his toes from the drop of the flag. In the first heat Gerard and Ryan pulled a lead from the rest of the pack. From  a spectators point of view it appeared as though the two karts merged into one as they cleverly snaked there way through the course. Gerard took 1st , Ryan taking 2nd, which would be disappointing as his blue printed engine gave up on the last corner of the last lap, taking 3rd was the constantly improving Clyde Supersad.

In the Shifters Class we saw a long awaited 1st place by Isadore “Cheeky” Martin and we certainly expect to see more podiums from him this year. In 2nd was Marc Mohammed and 3rd Marc Gill.

Rotax International saw the return of Brandon Singh. On this day Team RaceTech driver Bridget Singh had the number on all the boys. Her Chassis set up was excellent and her driving was impeccable, rarely putting a tyre out of place. In 2nd was Marcus Skinner who was having a slightly off day but managed to build momentum through the day . Brandon Singh had an extremely Fast “race pace”  managing 3rd place on the podium.

As the tension builds and the racers prepare themselves and equipment for the 4th round of racing at the ARC car park on the 20th May 2012. We know you won’t want to miss the excitement thrills and spills of the only open wheel racing in T&T .
