Isa Deen Impresses

Behind The Wheel

Dri­ver Isa Deen showed he is rar­ing to go this new rac­ing sea­son, tak­ing two first-place fin­ish­es in round one of the T&T Au­to­mo­biles Sports As­so­ci­a­tion (TTASA) Na­tion­al Race Of Cham­pi­ons Cir­cuit Rac­ing on Sun­day.

The first round of the com­pe­ti­tion was held at the Waller­field In­ter­na­tion­al Race­way and due to a low­er than an­tic­i­pat­ed com­peti­tor, turn-out forced Race Di­rec­tor of the day, Ryan Peyrau, to com­bine the cir­cuit rac­ing groups since in­di­vid­ual groups were not con­sti­tut­ed. The event con­sist­ed of two races per cat­e­go­ry - Group one, Group two, Groups three/four com­bined, Bikes, Time At­tack and Rad­i­cals.

The low com­peti­tor turnout al­so meant that qual­i­fy­ing was fa­cil­i­tat­ed be­fore the start of the event, as op­posed to be­ing held on the pre­vi­ous day.

Com­pet­ing in Group two, Deen bat­tled Arvin Singh for the top spot and pre­vailed with Singh in sec­ond spot and Kee­va See­gob­in in third. Race two saw sim­i­lar re­sults, this time though Saleem Deen, broth­er of Isa took third.

This fol­lowed the Time At­tack groups, where the bat­tle of the EK civics oc­curred be­tween Moses Moon­sie and Shi­va Ma­haraj. Moon­sie claimed the win with a time of 49.355 sec­onds and Ma­haraj clocked a time of 49.471s. The sec­ond ses­sion ren­dered sim­i­lar re­sults, this time Moon­sie en­tered the 48s range with a time of 48.892s.

In the two wheels, both races saw fa­mil­iar faces on the podi­um as Kiel Abra­ham took first, Nicholas Gon­za­les and Ja­maul Thomp­son in sec­ond and third, re­spec­tive­ly. The fastest bike time of the day went to Abra­ham with a time of 42.135s. A fall from Arthur­ton George in race one meant his day was over ear­ly as his bike sus­tained great dam­age, though he walked away un­harmed.

Back in the cars for Group one, Saleem took an­oth­er podi­um in the first race, leav­ing Aslim Ali and Dar­rel Singh be­hind in sec­ond and third. The sec­ond race saw Ali and Saleem trade po­si­tions, while Singh re­mained in third.

The com­bined Groups three/four-race saw the likes of Ronald Wort­man (Hon­da Civic), Kris­t­ian Boodoos­ingh (Hon­da Civic), Franklyn Boodram (Re­nault Megane) and TTASA pres­i­dent Fy­zo­ol Madan (Au­di DTM).

Race one was ac­tion-packed from the get-go as Boodoos­ingh and Boodram bat­tled for the first place, un­for­tu­nate­ly, a me­chan­i­cal fail­ure on Boodoos­ingh’s Hon­da, caused him to run off in­to the bot­tom cor­ner, end­ing his day. Boodoos­ingh left un­harmed and the race end­ed with Boodram in first, Wort­man in sec­ond and Madan in third.

The sec­ond race, un­for­tu­nate­ly, last­ed less than a lap as car­nage oc­curred in the top cor­ner at the start of the race due to con­tact be­tween Madan and Boodram. The in­ci­dent caused Boodram’s Megane to roll mul­ti­ple times, the dri­ver sus­tained on­ly a frac­tured wrist but was tak­en to the health fa­cil­i­ty for fur­ther ob­ser­va­tion.

The fi­nal races be­tween the Rad­i­cals, a re­cent ad­di­tion to the lo­cal mo­tor­sport itin­er­ary, saw Isa for an­oth­er podi­um in both races with Zachary Boodram and Ravi Singh in sec­ond and third, re­spec­tive­ly. The sec­ond race saw Ravi Singh in sec­ond and Madan in third. Isa re­mained in first.
