Family day out at Auto Show

dms Broadcasting is promising that the 2007 Cayman Islands Auto Show will be even bigger and better than before, packed with a range of competitions, exhibits, and activities to entertain everyone.

The radio conglomerate – which is hosting the Auto Show at The Lions Centre this Saturday, 27 January from 10am to 7pm – also plans to use the event to promote the important issue of road safety.

One of the main features of the day will be The Auto Show Competition in which car enthusiasts will enter the best cars on the island for the chance to win the ‘Best of Show,’ a $2,000 cash prize, and several other prizes. The vehicles will compete in the following categories: Sport, Luxury, Classic, Motor Bike, Trucks/SUVs, In Car Entertainment and Sound Off.

Spectators will also be able to enjoy the chance to see stunning, exclusive cars from the private collection of world renowned collector Andreas Ugland.

As part of the event, dms Broadcasting has partnered with three non-profit organizations – MattSafe (The Matthew Thompson Committee for Safe Driving), StreetSkill and CIRSAC (Cayman Islands Road Safety Advisory Council) – to raise road safety awareness during the show through demonstrations and activities. These include a jaws-of-life demonstration and a Beat the Hell out of Bad Driving activity to raise money for CIRSAC where participants will have the opportunity to beat a run-down vehicle with a sledgehammer.

In addition, dms Broadcasting has brought on board, Import Projektz and Fotzu, two car enthusiast clubs, which promote responsible road use to racers and car enthusiasts.

There will be plenty for children to do at the show at the Kids Corner. This special children’s area, sponsored by Party Mart, will be filled with bouncing inflatables, face painting, balloon characters, cotton candy, popcorn, and all the things a child needs to be entertained.

‘The dms Broadcasting team has worked hard to ensure the Cayman Islands receives the best Auto show yet, so everyone should attend,’ Breanne Avila, dms Broadcasting’s marketing and promotions manager, said. ‘It will be an event which not only appeals to the island’s car enthusiasts but is also the perfect place to bring the whole family.

‘We are very pleased to have partnered with a number of worthy organizations, such as MattSafe, StreetSkill, CIRSAC, to promote road safety. Import Projektz and Fotzu are also great role models for car enthusiasts entering the competition because their organizations are committed to safe driving.’

Last year’s event attracted over 4,000 individuals. For more information on this year’s event, visit
