The Formula 1 Fans in the Cayman Islands had another fun time watching the latest grand prix at the Lone Star Bar and Grill on Sunday, where local hero Fernando Alonso won the Spanish face in Barcelona for Ferrari.
More than $200 was collected by the fan group for the Cayman Islands Humane Society, the first time it has backed this charity. The group had spent the previous four races of the season collecting for Meals On Wheels.
During that time, more than $1,400 was collected by the F1FCI for Meals On Wheels and the club’s main organiser Danny Roach presented Meals On Wheels director Beulah McField a cheque for that amount last week.
Alonso thrilled the home crowd by beating Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen. It was the Spaniard’s second victory of the year and moved him into third place in the championship behind Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel and Raikkonen.
Ferrari’s Felipe Massa was third and Vettel fourth in Spain.
Roach said: “Thank you to everyone who attended and to ESSO, Automotive Art. Vanity Salon, Cayman Distributors Group, DARSCO Ltd and LUCA Restaurant who provided the door prizes. We raised $197 in cash and about $50 in donations.”
The next showing from 9am at the Lone Star is the Monaco Grand Prix on 26 May. Attendance and entry for the raffle prizes is free but a $2 minimum donation is expected.
