Breakers gears up for last race

The home for motorsports in the Cayman Islands is set for its last event.

Breakers Speedway is slated to stage its last event next Sunday, 11 December. The 1/8 mile track will see a race called ‘End of Days,’ organized by the Cayman Islands Drag Racing Association.

Action will get going at roughly 3pm with test and tune slated for 12noon. Regular admission is $5 with pit passes on offer for $15. Racers will pay $25. There is expected to be live entertainment with refreshments on sale.

News of the meet comes after the association staged its Monster Dash event earlier this month. Cliff Weeks, 38, was the big winner in his Mitsubishi Evolution III over Ronnie Forbes and his Mercedes Benz in the A class. The other winners were Donald Francis (in the Plan B Civic Type-R) in the B division, Tynsia Forsythe and her Mitsubishi Evo III in the C class (who beat Minroy Hydes and his Toyota Starlet), Edison Bodden and his Honda Civic Type-R in the D category and Michael Swaby and his Suzuki Hayabusa in the motorcycle segment.

Saturday’s race also comes after local drag racers competed in Jamaica. A number of Cayman drivers, including Michael ‘Bad Oil’ Williams and Kenrick ‘Banks’ Baker, were at Jamwest Raceway in Old Hope, Westmoreland for Jamaica’s final meet of 2011.

Cayman’s ‘End of Days’ event is being sponsored in large part by NAPA and officials are slated to be visiting from the US.
