Jamaica’s Formula Woman driver, Sara Misir, looks forward to raising the roof on Monday at the Dover Raceway as roofing company, Spectrum Systems, announced sponsorship for her 2023 motorsports season.

The significant sponsorship deal from Spectrum Systems will support Misir for the duration of the local racing calendar.

Misir, the 2022 Jamaica Race Drivers Club (JRDC) Champion in the MP3 & TS1 classes, will open her season at the JRDC’s Carnival of Speed at the Dover Raceway on Easter Monday. Misir will take on a new challenge as she moves up a class to the MP4 category to face the 2022 Champion, veteran Doug “Hollywood” Gore.

Misir looks forward to the challenge.

“I dominated the MP3 class last season, so I wanted to take on a new challenge this year. The MP4 class has been dominated by “the beast”, Doug Gore, but look out for ‘the beauty’ this year!” joked Misir.

Meanwhile, CEO of Spectrum Systems Limited, Andrew Stanigar is backing Misir to succeed.

“Spectrum Systems, Jamaica’s number-one roofing company, is pleased to sponsor Jamaica’s number-one female race car driver,” he said.

“We see how much she has dedicated to the race track in 2022 for Formula Woman, the GT Cup Championships and in the JRDC series and we wish her all the best as she takes on the MP4 class.”

Head of Leep Marketing and manager to Sara Misir, Tanya Lee Perkins, said sponsorship support for athletes can be critical to their success.

“We are thankful to Spectrum Systems for joining her sponsor pool for 2023. Sponsorships encourage athletic performance and signals that corporate Jamaica is behind our sports women and men and believe in their talent and ability to inspire,” she said.

Misir is the RJR Sports Foundation Motosports Athlete of the Year in the female category.

In 2022. Spectrum System also sponsored Jamaica's all-female shooting team, the Super Six shooters, that placed third at the Pan American Handgun Championships.

Jamaica’s history-making female shooters will be leaving the island starting on Sunday to compete in the Pan American Handgun Championships in Polk County, Florida from September 14-21.

Members of the team, who were feted by title sponsor Spectrum Systems at the Jamaica Pegasus on Thursday, are looking forward to competing in the Production Optics Division. Yeonnie Campbell, Renee Rhickie, Sasha Mullings, Shayon Francis and Kayla Keane will make the trip to Florida where over 28 countries from Central, North and South America will compete over various divisions.

The Super-Six squad had intensified their tactical training under the watchful eyes of coaches Andy Yap and Anthony Johnson and their fitness levels have been enhanced thanks to physiotherapy courtesy of Spectrum Systems.

Team member Shayon Francis is satisfied with preparations going into the championships,

“We will be competing against shooters who have been doing this for years so we started training up to four times per week instead of just twice daily. Our physical training has really helped to improve our agility and speed going into the championships as a result,” she said.

 For this reason and others, Sasha Mullings, the team captain, believes they are ready to perform at their best.

 “I know we will perform well in Florida and I know this will boost more interest in the sport from licensed firearm holders. We are ready," she said.

 The team’s participation at the championships was made possible through a multimillion-dollar sponsorship from Spectrum Systems who will cover airfare, accommodation and match rounds.

Andrew Stanigar, the Managing Director of Spectrum Systems believes the women will represent the country well in Florida.

"I have seen these ladies rise to the challenge to beat the best male shooters in Jamaica and they did that through teamwork, ingenuity and strategy," he said. "I am confident that they are going to make Jamaica proud."

Also in attendance at the send-off ceremony were Jamaica Rifle Association President Major John Nelson and Formula Woman Driver Sara Misir who offered words of encouragement to the women.
