Speed fans shift gears again to help Pines home

Formula 1 Fans in the Cayman Islands get their next treat at the Lone Star Bar and Grill for the Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday. 

The delayed TV screening is from 8.30am and minimum donations of all in attendance are $2, which goes to a local charity. This race’s recipient is the Pines retirement home.  

There is a free raffle and prizes include a Manchester United replica jersey from DHL, $25 gift voucher from Automotive Art, $25 gas voucher from ESSO and bottle of spirits from Cayman Distributors.  

There is always a themed breakfast from the country the race is in, so presumably this one will be Belgian waffles – or possibly chocolates.  

The main news leading up to the race is that Kimi Raikkonen is no longer a candidate for the Red Bull seat when Mark Webber retires from Formula 1 at the end of the season. 

Raikkonen and Toro Rosso driver Daniel Ricciardo were announced as the two main candidates to replace Webber next year, but Raikkonen will not be Sebastian Vettel’s new teammate next season after negotiations broke down.  

Ricciardo looks certain to replace Webber, with speculation rampant that an announcement will be made this weekend at the Belgian Grand Prix.
