Maloney heads CMRC table
Mark Maloney leads the drivers’ table and Barbados the country standings ahead of Round 3 of the Seaboard Marine Caribbean Marine Motor Racing Championship (CMRC) scheduled for Guyana on November 13.
Maloney, driving the Automotive Art/RBC/Valvoline Mazda RX 3, heads a brace of five Barbadian drivers in the Top 10 with 31 points, while Barbados have 102 points at the top of the country standings.
It is the first time since 2008 that Barbados have found themselves in such a position, and much will depend on the exploits of the drivers at the demanding South Dakota circuit at Timehri.
Maloney showed good form in the second round of the championship at Bushy Park last week and is looking forward to the upcoming meet in Guyana.
“We have a few things to do going forward and with the challenges of Guyana, we want to be in the best possible shape for that meet,” he said.
Jamaica’s David “King David” Summerbell Jr heads the overall drivers’ standings with 44 points. Roger “His Hotness” Mayers, the four-wheel drive lap record holder at Bushy Park, and veteran driver Doug Maloney in the Paints Plus Audi Quatro have 20 points each and occupy third and fourth places, respectively, in the table.
The Bushy Park two-wheel drive lap record holder Stuart Williams is fifth on 19 points.
Guyana’s Paul Vierra (16); Barbadian Barry Mayers (12); Jamaicans Chris Campbell and Peter Rae, with seven points each; and George Bayley, another Jamaican, on five points, are the other drivers making up the Top 10.
