A total of 58 cars are down to take part in the second round of the Barbados Auto Racing League’s 2010 racing season which comes off this Sunday at Bushy Park racing circuit in St. Philip.Fans will be eager to see the return clash between Mark Maloney, in his much improved Rockstar-sponsored Mazda RX3, fresh from an impressive showing in Jamaica, and Stuart Williams, in his Williams Equipment Hilti Lotus Elise. The last time these two met, Maloney got the better of Williams whose car was plagued by problems which prevented him from giving of his best.Also expected to provide fans lots of excitement will be the return of the big bikes. Six of the island’s top bikers will come under starter’s order in what will be a warm-up for the second round of the Caribbean Motor Racing Championship, due to take place in just under eight weeks.As customary, much of the excitement is expected to come from the lower groups. In Group 1B, two women – Natasha Farnum and Shannon Kirton – will be battling for supremacy with Sluggy Blackman, Hanief Gooding and Errol Edwards.In Group 2A the fight is expected to be among Sean “The Doc” Russell, Mark “Ointment” Thompson and Kurt Hamblin. In 2B Shawn Boxill, Jason Parkinson and the in-form Jason Harewood are expected to scorch the track with some blistering times. Christopher Hinds and Kenrick “Snappa” Husbands are expected to again light up the raceway, with stiff opposition coming from Edward Corbin and Kevin Griffith. All eyes will also be on Justin Gill, son of the legendary king of racing at Bushy Park in the 1970s, Mike “The Samurai” Gill.Groups 3 and 4 are expected to be merged. (CH)
