Divine finishes top of the class
Aeziah Divine’s persistence shone through as the youngster secured the Minibike Junior class at the Bermuda Motorcycle Racing Club’s Circuit Racing Championship finale.
Divine, who at eight years old is one the youngest in the series, capped off his fine season at the championship curtain call at the RUBiS Southside Raceway in St David’s at the weekend.
He finished on 565 points, with Sheun Simmons in second on 353 and Kymaree Pitt third on 317. Simmons took first place in Heat One, Jediah Cumbermack won Heat Two, and Aeziah Divine claimed victory in Heat Three.
In the Scooter 70 class, which raced alongside the Formula Open class, Ed Cook and Devon Bailey kept the spectators engaged in their battle to the finish.
Bailey’s powerful leads helped him to regain a top position in Heat One after a mechanical issue forced him to switch bikes mid-race. Cook secured first in Heat One while Bailey won the second and third heats.
It was Ricky Wade, though, who secured the title; his consistent performances giving him a significant points lead throughout the season.
Wade finished on 464 points, with Kenny DeSilva second on 311 and Nasaje Anderson third on 294.
Nathaniel Binega-Northcott won the Minibike Senior class, finishing on 493 points, 130 points more than Keimari Burchall in second. Aiden Lopes came another 30 points behind in third.
Sandy Benevides beat Jason Pacheco to win the Formula Xtreme class, while CJ Richardson dominated the Formula Open division to claim the title.
