Cayman’s top racing body will keep the same people in the driver’s seat.
The Cayman Motorsports Association held its annual general meeting last week and voted in the same executive board from 2013. Bobby Hulse remains president, with Jimel McLean as vice president, Matthew Seales as treasurer and Nikko Miller as secretary.
The association said in a statement that it also named three people special advisers to the board. The statement reads, “The board for 2014 remains the same as 2013. In addition, a decision was made to have a second person assist with each position except for president. The assigned supporters are: vice president – Aaron Haylock, treasurer – Gary Huggins and secretary – Kim Kirkconnell. The idea behind this is to allow more support for the board and the events which will be held this year.
“However, this doesn’t mean that we don’t need help from the wider membership because we do and we can’t do everything without your support. We encourage everyone to speak to the board members to see how you can get involved and help us grow and develop as an active association and contributor to motorsports in Cayman and to our community on a whole.
The full plans for this year will be revealed soon but to start, our first Time Attack event will be Feb. 23. So get your cars ready and let’s have a great 2014 season.”
Hulse, a George Town native, is a stalwart on the association’s executive board, having served as vice president in 2011 and president in years past. Like most of the executive board, Hulse is also an established racer, posting a number of top finishes last season.
The highlight of his campaign was a second place showing – behind the wheel of his black Toyota Altezza – in the unlimited category of the the Al and Jay Bodden Memorial race, the season-ending meet for the association’s monthly Time Attack series. The autocross event, which showcased the likes of Andy Bodden in a Mitsubishi Evolution V, took place on Huldah Avenue as part of the Drive Cayman spectacle, which focused on driver safety.
