first_imgOVERSEAS-based Guyanese motor racer Calvin Ming continues to create history after producing a flawless array of driving in the FIA NACAM F4 championships last weekend at the newly constructed Merida circuit in Mexico. Ming is the first driver to record a win at the newly constructed circuit in the Yucatan Peninsula and did so in fine style by producing a technical race.Speaking after the race, Ming said, “I want to thank my team for an incredible weekend. They had the car working. Unfortunate about the last race, but we are both okay.”Starting on pole for the first race, the Guyanese fell back to second but managed to stay on the tail of the then race leader before slingshotting to victory by more than six seconds.His 1:29.776 seconds was the fastest recorded during race one with a qualifying time of 1:28.494, leaving his RAM Racing team-mate Manuel Sulaiman to finish second on the 3.4km trackHe was also clocked at a top speed of 310km over the 17-lap race, continuing his run in the championship.In Race two yesterday, starting in sixth spot, Ming continued to showcase his class and produce history, by winning a five-car fight for the lead and recording his second win of the day, becoming the first man to win two races back to back on the circuit.Unfortunately, a racing incident between Ming and his team-mate saw both men out of the race as Ming’s car caught fire. The quick response of the marshals, however, ensured that both drivers were unscathed.last_img read more
