After his stunning performance at last weekend’s Florida Winter Tour race meet in Ocala, Florida, Justin Sirgany will bow into action today at the Palisadoes International Raceway, Kingston. The meet is scheduled to get under way at 9 a.m.

Sirgany, who celebrates his ninth birthday today, is expected to dominate the Rotax Micro Max Class.

According to reports from Ocala last Saturday, Sirgany qualified second in the class and went on to take the chequered flag in fine style. The following day, the St Andrew Prep schoolboy qualified in seventh position and finished fourth in the finals.

By virtue of the accumulated points, he finished fourth in the championship, behind the representatives of Sweden, Canada and the United States, respectively. Over 40 karters contested the championship.”The standard on the North American circuit is very high and our young karters are competing against the best of South, Central and North America,” said Errol Anderson, immediate past chairman of the Jamaican Motoring Millennium Club (JMMC). Anderson, who retired last month after more than four years at the JMMC’s helm, had high praises for all the Jamaican participants.

Other local young karters at the meet were Thomas Issa, who qualified in second position on both Saturday and Sunday, won the pre-final and finished second in Saturday’s final, but was later disqualified.

In spite of this, Issa finished eighth in the championship (Mini Max Class).Joshua Sirgany qualified fourth both days. He was involved in an accident in the pre-final on Saturday. He started the finals in 30th position and produced a late burst to secure 10th place in the overall standing.

“Anytime one of our karters finish in the top 10, I regard that as a very good performance,” Anderson added.
