Remote control car race a speedy hit

A grand prix car race with a twist was held in Cayman last week to raise funds for a local charity and school when racers operated remote control cars around a track in Camana Bay. 

The race, which was organized by Caledonian Global Financial Services, attracted more than 20 companies and 90 individuals from the local business community. It raised more than $12,000 for Feed our Future charity and the Clifton Hunter PTA.  

The event included a main race, fastest lap and an obstacle course race. Awards were also given to the best decorated car and the worst driver.  

“The event was very well attended and received so much more interest than anticipated that we are looking forward to having it be an even bigger event next year. We are very thankful for all the support and donations from the participants and are thrilled to help support Feed Our Future and the Clifton Hunter PTA,” said Caledonian CEO Kobi Dorenbush.
