[www.inewsguyana.com] – Debutant Kristian Jeffrey survived a grueling day of racing to be named the individual champion of the Caribbean Motor Racing Championships (CMRC) group four category on Sunday, November 16 during the third leg of the championships at the South Dakota Circuit.
Jeffrey picked up two out of three wins to maintain his lead of the top pole position and the eventual championship. The Stag Beer sponsored driver had his luck missing a crash that ended the day of many of the top drivers in the group.
Meanwhile, Jeffrey’s final race was drama filled in the first three laps, trailing Bajan Stuart Maloney in an intense duel before, Maloney lost control on turn one which forced him off the track allowing Jeffrey to power away easily. Maloney won one of his races while Jeffrey was third.
“It’s phenomenal, I didn’t really expect it, I got to give all the praises to my team, the guys have been working everyday 24/7, I also need to thank Stag for coming onboard with me, the support they gave me for this race meet was unreal,” Jeffrey told iNews after his final race that he won comfortably.
Meanwhile, Kevin Jeffrey, who had to end his day early due to a crash, was proud of his son Kristian.
“I’m really proud of him, I was chasing the championship for a while but now I can live it through him and hopefully this starts a new era,” the elder Jeffrey stated.
In Super Bike action, Nikhil Seereeram and Matthew Vieira had even success with both winning on the day. Seereeram was more successful however, grabbing the important victories in the CMRC category.
