Looks good. Those roads look hard to race on.

lol...they can be pretty bad

Dover (the one with a lot of walls) Was privately built by a guy in the 70s and was for cars...hasnt ever been resurfaced to my knowledge and it needs it badly. But hey its a relatively small country and motorsports is struggling worldwide at every level. So we do what we can...I'm just glad we have not one but two tracks to ride...even if they aren't perfect.

Jamwest (that looks more modern) was built more recently and is FiA approved but again the surface needs a bit of work. It started off as a runway, then drag strip, then circuit.

Iíve been to Jamaica many times for standard American tourist purposes (scuba/over eating-drinking/SUNBURN). Never would have guessed the island had a track or 2! Looks fun, but must hot as hell and based on how you guys drive cars on the public roads I be terrified to ride on your closed courses. Keep the videos coming and Iíll watch safely from here.

Good to see decent racing scenes come up all over the world. As far as I'm aware there are no Central/South America/Carribean specific models, so are yours similar to the US models? Honda used to do some Brazil specific models before, but not anymore.

LOL! Drivers are indeed terrible...On track is MUCH safer. Jamaica is not as uncomfortably hot as your southern states...it's just hot all year round. But Arizona, Texas, even Florida i find are waaaaaay more unberable in the summer.

As far as manufacturers most if not all bikes will be imported as US/Canada Spec as our closest neighbors. For road purposes there is a (bizarre) cc limit based on archaic laws so technically no 700+ cc bikes are allowed to be imported without a special license. Of course plenty ppl still find a way around this and so Panigales and S1krs are becoming popular but mostly for show. Racing wise the story is the same as most of the world...R6 and Honda with eh odd ZX6R

Will post a new vid soon!
