Remember, gates open at 7am, so come out early and pick your favourite spot in the stands,” Barnes said.

Preparations for what is expected to be a thrilling race day are completed and all final routine checks of the track will be conducted to ensure each driver’s safety on race day.

“Preparations are completed. The track is ready, the final clean up will be done on Friday. We had a successful track day today with numerous cars testing so that’s a really good look for Independence of Speed.”

“We are excited to announce our new title sponsor Mobil 1 racing who has partnered with us for the rest of the year, as we continue to work hard to make Motorsport more attractive to corporate Jamaica. A special shout out to Island Net for providing full internet coverage throughout the Dover property and to all of our loyal sponsors who continue to make Dover a success,” Barnes said.

The competition in the MP2 class is definitely heating up, and it will be interesting to see what the result will be at the end of racing on Monday.
