Jamaica and sports go hand in hand. In like manner, what we are seeing these days is Jamaica expanding our sporting prowess and going into many non-traditional types of events. Be that as it may, not only are we entering the events and competitions, but we are also medaling and creating records and history at the same time. ‘You just don’t expect to see Jamaica in this sport’, is a statement of the past. We are in everything, and best of all, everything is within us.
The black, green and gold stamp is now firmly on Karting. We have turned a tourist and amusement park pull into one of our national sporting events. We have a national body for the sport in the Jamaica Millennium Motoring Club (JMMC). Subsequently, we are invited internationally to compete and represent the flag. The JMMC has a great team which supports their drivers where ever they compete.
In the same fashion, today we report on Jamaican representative Beckham Toupikov who continues to improve after stepping up in class. Competing in his fourth ever Mini race at the Spring/Summer Series Race #3 event held at Ocala Gran Prix in Florida on May 11th.
Accordingly, Beckham started off his weekend by qualifying 5th in the Mini Swift class. Under those circumstances, he then lowered his lap time by over a second to finish 3rd in the Pre-Final. This was over six seconds behind the winner. For this reason, in the final, he again dropped his lap time, finishing 3rd by just over one second.
JMMC has expect their congratulations to Beckham for his result.
Consequently, besides Karting, the JMMC supports motorsports such as drag racing, circuit racing, sprints, dexterity tests, and rallies. To learn more about the club and to become a member, check out their website at http://jamaicamotorsports.com/
