Dover! How I love the sounds of the engines and the screams of the masses as tyres squeal around sharp turns. The excitement of Dover.
I won’t waste any time but to say that after my last experience with Dover I was excited to go back minus having to contend with the traffic I had to deal with at the Easter meet. Had to sit there in traffic, after leaving early (around 2) and didn’t get to the main road until minutes to five…
But the draw of the CMRC meet was too much to handle. I had to see the match ups and not second hand either. So off we went on Labor Day heading to St. Ann from Mandeville. We were all hoping to get some roasted yam on the way through Clarendon but everywhere we passed wasn’t ready for the Dover crowd. Itz like they already made their millions so who cares if all these cars passing wanted yam or not. We weren’t amused. After about two hours and about a hundred potholes we finally got there and immediately sought food. Jah know… a who tell we nuh fi carry foood.. all prices double up…
I’m saying this right now!!!! NEVER AGAIN will i go to Dover without carrying foood. NEVER!!!!
We got there early so we saw the intro of the drivers as well as the ceremony.

It was a good day with lots of activities and the races were hype. The anticipated match ups did not disappoint either. My fave racer David The king made sure to show them who was boss and all the racers did well. Big up SeaBoard for the sponsorship of the event. Keeping racing alive means alot to many Jamaicans.
At the end of the day the thought of long waits in traffic lingered but this time it only took about 50 minutes to an hour to exit because of the new exits and the control of the authotiries. So no sour points this time to mention at all.
Well okay.. there was one… the YAM!!!!.. Even on our way back they had run out so they actually catered for those who left real early or reached late… Maybe I need to open a yam stand on public holidays. Show them how itz dun…
Well other than that I can’t wait to do it all over again.
