The final event of the 2018 circuit racing season revved to an entertaining crescendo at circuit racing’s sacred 1.6 in St Ann, on Heroes Day, October 15, 2018. And as if to maintain the integrity of the event’s title – Heroes of Speed – the heavy-hitting drivers rolled out, wearing determination’s armor and flaunting victory’s shield.


There were numerous pleasant surprises for the fans in the paddock, chief of which was Doug Gore’s Kia-Beast/Tiger. As I have stated earlier, Doug’s machine is work in progress and as one would expect, hiccups will be included in its race-preparedness diet! Lol.

Confirmation of my view was blatantly waved by the Beast at the event. But, knowing ‘Hollywood’ and the nature of his gigantic ego, the Beast will undergo the requisite surgeries and a victory-grabbing predator will arise. Time.


A lot unfolded at the event, but the most salient deserves individual attention. Nicholas Barnes is Junior ‘Flette’ Barnes’ son. He (Nicholas) could not escape a future wrapped around shifting gears even if such a clause was inserted in the script destiny crafted for him. Nicholas is well-known for the level at which he operates at Wet n Slide-type events.

Nicholas wields the same big stick at Dover – a canary-yellow AE86. Have you ever seen him at work?


Question – Who was driving the truck? [Lol] Not playing!

Ricardo Scott – happy you are ok!
