Ajoni’s Primera gains ground

Motorsports continues to be in high
gear as another dexterity race is on the schedule.

Saturday sees another Time Attack
meet, sponsored by Valvoline and Parker’s auto supply store. Organizing the
race as usual is the Cayman Motorsports Association. 

Action gets going from 6pm at the
Progressive loop on Sparky Drive
in George Town.
As usual drivers will be split up into three main groups: All Wheel Drive, Two Wheel Drive and

Mandatory driver registration takes
place Friday at 7pm at Parker’s in Industrial Park.

The last event took place in the
morning hours on Sunday March 20 and saw a host of interesting results from the
19 participants.

Josen Ebanks claimed much props in
his turbo Toyota Starlet as he won the Two Wheel Drive section. Ajoni Ambersley
came second in his Nissan Primera and Jerad Ebanks placed third in the same
turbo Starlet he shared with his brother Josen.

Michael Weatherford won the All Wheel Drive
category in Ace Paint Subaru Impreza Sti RA. He shared the vehicle with a
number of other racers. Two of them in Andrew Jackson (normally a track
official) and Roje Williams (who had a Volkswagen Golf break down on him)
placed second and third respectively.

The Unlimited class saw Keith P.
Tibbetts III power his Subaru Impreza Sti to the win. Andy Bodden ran the
Automotive Art Mitsubishi Mirage into second place while motorsports
association president Bobby Hulse came third in his black Toyota Altezza.

Out of those top performers
arguably the most surprising at the moment is Ambersley. Last season he
underachieved, mostly behind the wheel of his Subaru Legacy wagon.

Now Ambersley, 21, sports a lowered
Primera with a handful of modifications. The car has new cams and intake parts,
Bilstein springs and shocks, an upgraded sway bar and Toyo R1R tires.

Based on previous strong outings
this year, the Arsenal fan is in good position for a class title. However the West Bay
resident insists he’s still learning his car.

“I’m doing good but I’m working to
do a lot better,” Ambersley said. “I’m still improving and trying to do better.
I’d say I’m still adapting to a better performing car.

“The wagon was four-wheel drive and
a lot bigger where as the Primera is quicker and smaller.”
