Trinbago SocaRacer took a commanding lead at the second leg of the 2018 Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC) at the Frankie Boodram Wallerfield International Racing Circuit last weekend.

Leading the charge for the local team were Aqeeb Ali, Marc Gill and Ronald Wortman. Ali won all three races in the GP 1 category to be crowned champion, with Gill taking champion honour in the GP2 category, also winning all three races, while Wortman was crowned GP 3 champion.
