Today's go-kart race meet at the Palisadoes International Raceway, Kingston, promises a lot of excitement in the Rotax Masters Class, which will include of some of the stars of yesteryear?

"Among those who are expected to face the starter are Mike Simmons, Peter Rae, Garth Genus, Peter Moodie Jr., Sebastian Rae, Dr Mark Minott and Ricardo Walters," head of the Jamaica Karting Association, Neil Williams, disclosed on Thursday.

With this competitive line-up the mettle of Moodie, who has been dominating the class for some time, should be tested.

Another showdown is anticipated in the 50 cc Class of five and six year-olds. Zander Williams, who made a clean sweep at the last race meet, will be tested by Tommy Gore and Mark Moodie, who were absent then.

In the Rotax Mini Max Class Justin Sirgany and Mark-Anthony Eaton are expected to battle for the top honours. After missing the last race meet, Jonathan Law and Fraser McConnell are back, and they should prove a handfull for William Myers in the Rotax Junior Class. The witty Law should employ the knowledge and experience gained from the exposure in Florida.

The Rotax Senior Class features rising star Collin Daley, who will take on Philip Myers, who is home on holidays from school in the United States (US), and the no-nonsense Tara Fong Yee.

Absent from today's meet will be Thomas Issa, who is back in Florida challenging for one of the club titles in Homestead, while Matthew Williams and Chad Leohong are preparing for exams.

Reports are Joshua Sirgany is in the US. He and Issa are vying for the Micro Max and Rotax Junior titles respectively, in the South Florida Spring Championships.

The event is set to kick off at 10 a.m.
