The Jamaica Race Driver’s Club staged a well attended and exciting first event of the 2010 circuit racing season when the LIME Carnival of Speed race meet was held at Dover raceway in St. Ann earlier in April, heralding the 20th anniversary season ahead of them.

On race day, several new and refreshed cars were to grace the track in all classes, as competitors stepped up their game from last year. Indeed, it looked like a new car show, as almost everyone had a showpiece of a car to parade for their fans, with David Summerbell, Doug Gore, Sebastian and Peter Rae, the Browns Town crew of Nigel Edwards, Jerome Jones and Ian Edwards, Charles and Alan Chen, Team Outcast’s Jaleel Handal, Peter Jaggon and Brian Foster to name a few all entering pristine vehicles for the event, along with newcomer Joscelyn Brown in an immaculately prepared 1971 Ford Escort that looked like it just rolled off the production line of a race car factory. The event was broadcast live on Power 106 FM, KLAS Sports radio and was streamed live on video on the club’s website at www.jrdc.org to keep those unable to attend abreast of the happenings.

“King” David Summerbell dominated the Modified Production 3 and Thundersport races in his Total sponsored AMS Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII, romping to relatively easy victories in a cat and mouse game with Team Mobay Racing’s Douglas “Hollywood” Gore, who is in the midst of development work yet to be completed on his Slam Condoms/Sherwin Williams Paints /Amsoil/Wings for Life/Guardian Asset Management/Western Alignment Centre/Hamilton’s Machine Shop/Boomerang Tire Sales Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X.
