Brandon Shor and Nicholas Barnes, Jamaica's top karting and circuit racing drivers, will be the country's recipients of the FIA American awards presented by NACAM.

Shor, who began his career in 2018 to pursue a similar path as his racing idols, multiple Formula One Champion Lewis Hamilton, and Jamaican karter Alex Powell, took home the Abe Ziadie Trophy, the sport's highest honour in 2022 after dominating his class and collecting the most points of any other karter.

The diminutive driver had another superb season last year, as he again outclassed the competition which has resulted in his pending award.

Meanwhile, Barnes, the 2022 Red Bull drift champion, also ended 2023 on a high with three wins in as many races. He copped the overall drivers' championship as well as the MP2 class championship.

The FIA American award ceremony and gala dinner will take place in Panama City, Panama on February 3, 2023.

JMMC in a released extended commendations to both Shor and Barnes 'for their National Championship achievements and FIA America awards."
