Young Guyanese racecar driver Calvin Ming recorded valuable championship points over last weekend during the first round of the USF2000 championship this weekend in Saint Petersburg, Russia to be in fifth place overall after the opening round.
Ming noted that he had a tough qualifying round on Friday, posting on his Facebook page, “Another tough day in Qualifying one today. Will be starting the first race from 14th position. Still one more qualifying tomorrow to sort out all the kinks…”

Ming finished the race on Saturday in fourth place after starting from 14th position. He again posted after the event and another qualifying session; “P4 finish in race one at Saint Petersburg from a P14 starting position….One more race tomorrow starting from the same position due to an unfortunate situation in qualifying again. Aiming on improving on the position today to aim for a podium spot tomorrow.”
However, things did not go fully to his plan as the young Guyanese speed ace had to settle for an 8th place finish. While not the desired result, Ming had valuable points after finishing in the top 10 on both occasions to be fifth in the standings.
“Scored some decent points this weekend with two top 10 positions. Finished race one in 4th and race two in 8th. Leaving the weekend 5th in points despite having issues all weekend and not having the results we wanted. Now we have some time to regroup and focus on the things we can improve on for the next round,” he wrote on Facebook.
