Trinidad and Tobago’s Bridget Singh will make her Bushy Park Barbados debut today in the Williams Digicel International Race Meet, the third round of the 2016 Seaboard Marine Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC).
A five-time Kart Champion, Singh is the daughter of regional veteran Ravi Singh, who will also make his race debut at the redeveloped circuit. Representing her country for the first time in the CMRC, the 20-year-old will be the lone female racer among close to 100 entries from home and overseas.
Driving her Racetech/TIMKHA Equipment Rentals Honda Civic in Group II, Bridget is a member of a strong T&T team, including current points leader Luke Bhola and reigning champion Marc Gill, both who will also be racing in Honda Civics, while her father Ravi (Mazda RX-7) joins reigning champion and current points leader Paul Vieira (RX-7) in Group III.
Having driven karts from the age of four, Bridget started racing in the 80cc Cadet class when she was nine, winning two titles. Later, after winning the 100cc Championship twice, she moved up to T&T’s most competitive class, Rotax International, finishing third in her first year before adding a fifth Championship to her growing portfolio.
Since starting her circuit-racing career this year, Bridget has managed to place in the top four at all four race meets so far, including sharing victory in a three-hour endurance event with her father Ravi. Racing in the local Group I during the CMRC round at the Frankie Boodram Wallerfield International Raceway in July, she claimed her first win.
“I’m really looking forward to testing my skills at Bushy Park,” said Bridget. “Competing in the CMRC Group II class will allow me to gain experience as a driver, and I am proud to be representing Trinidad.”
Organised by Bushy Park Motor Sports Inc (BPMSI), this weekend’s 23-race programme will feature three races each for the CMRC Groups—the Suzuki Challenge Series SR3 Cup, Swift Cup and the BPMSI’s 2016 Club Championship, a total of more than 170 racing laps. Hilti Handicap races for cars and bikes will round off the programme.
