A parking lot at the Cayman International School was shut down on Sunday for a buggy race with drivers raising money for the “feed our future” charity.
Some of the carts were modified by students from the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC) who perhaps made the carts a little too fast as a couple of drivers flew out of the carts. Driver Richard Adams and his Co-driver Graeme Thomson spoke about the moment which had their hearts in their mouths.
“We’re over the ramp, we’re on to the mile and yeah it wasn’t too good, luckily my co-pilot he saw it coming, he went arghhhhhh!,” Mr. Adams said.
Meanwhile his partner remembers the experience a little differently and is happy it wasn’t too serious. “Little beat up, little beat up but we landed softly, little rough though few cuts and scrapes but we survived,” Mr. Thomson said.
Minister of Sport Hon. Osbourne Bodden was also a competitor in the cart race and he finished second place making this the second year in a row he received the silver. He said he is looking forward to next year when the track will possibly be a larger one going around the clock in George Town.
“The public will get more and more involved as we go along over the years, I think it’s a fantastic effort it’s something new, we don’t have anything like this in Cayman and maybe I’d like to see it next year in the middle of town going around the town clock and the library.
