Burke resumes assault on Time

Craig Burke should be revving up for more racing glory. 

The Cayman Motorsports Association is putting on its third meet of the 2013 Time Attack season. The Progressive Loop, located on Sparky’s Drive in George Town, is expected to serve as host on Sunday, 28 April, from 1pm. 

Focus will be on Burke, one of last month’s top finishers. He drove his Subaru Impreza to the Street Class title in a time of 82.856 seconds, while Ajoni Ambersley won the Battle segment in his Nissan Primera in 56.784 seconds. Ambersley held off Aaron Haylock, who had a time of 56.901 seconds in his Honda Civic EG.  

There were nine racers in the division, including brothers Kody and Nikko Miller in their Mitsubishi Mirage, Jody Jervis in a Mini Cooper, Troy Brady in a Mitsubishi Evolution VIII and Vicki Hulse in a Toyota Starlet.  

Eight drivers would tackle the Unlimited Division, with Gary Huggins leading the way. He raced his Kimmar Distributors Toyota Starlet to the win in 77.294 seconds. Motorsports association president Bobby Hulse placed second in 78.746 seconds in his Toyota Altezza with Tom Kirkconnell driving the Automotive Art Mitsubishi Mirage to third place at 79.686 seconds. 

Hulse won the Unlimited Battle segment in 52.718 seconds. Michael Weatherford was a close second in his Impreza RA at 52.785 seconds, while Marcus Huggins took his dad’s Kimmar Distributors Starlet to third place in 55.447 seconds. 

Throughout the season, several notable vehicles have taken part in autocross racing such as the Automotive Art carbon fibre Nissan 350Z, a Mazda Miata and the Liquid Nitro-sponsored 125cc Italia go-kart. 

The 2013 Time Attack season sees its next race slated for 26 May. Meets continue at the end of every month until October, with the season-ending Al and Jay Memorial scheduled to take place on 24 November.
