Dail’s local record in jeopardy

The year may be almost over but racing continues to press on.

This weekend sees the third meet in the Cayman Motorsports Association Full Throttle drag series.

Racing takes place Saturday at Breakers Speedway from 6pm.

The track will be open for testing and tuning on Saturday from 2pm.

Registration and technical inspection will be held at Automotive Art on Friday from 7pm until 10pm.

The association states the meet will be in honour of Marston Bodden and Rueben Forbes (brother of Cayman track star Ronald Forbes) as both passed away recently.

The two men are held in high regard by the association for their involvement in local motorsports.

In addition the association intends to have esteemed drivers Jody Jervis, Michael ‘Bad Oil’ Williams, and Patrick Campbell competing in the event.

The trio primarily race around the Caribbean in drag meets representing Cayman. Jervis can be found in either a silver Nissan Skyline R33 GTS-T or a white Nissan Skyline R33 GT-S.

Bad Oil is known for his white Mitsubishi Evolution III and Campbell stars behind the wheel of his black Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R.

In any case much attention will be on Dail Davis, his black 1989 Ford Mustang and their place in the local record books.

Davis currently holds the record for fastest time by a car down the 1/8 track at 6.199s.

For the record Dante ‘Ross’ Hydes of West Bay holds the mark for the fastest time by a local racer and the fastest motorcycle time at Breakers by running his red Honda CBR 1000 in 6.112s.

Spectators can also be on the look-out for the winners from the last meet. With the second meet in November being cancelled, three drivers still have props from their wins back in October.

Karyn Bodden dominated the Street class in her Porsche Cayman S, Ian Tibbetts won the Pro Street category in his Chevrolet Corvette and Junior Hydes cleaned up the Pro Race section in his red and yellow Ford Mustang.

News of Saturday’s race comes a few weeks after the Al and Jay Bodden Memorial Time Attack.

Put on by the association that meet drew a handful of racers at the Progressive loop, where Lakeview Raceway (held on the Bodden property) was years ago.
