“Fans will be able to see the rivalry come alive in ten lap heats with drivers starting along Dundonald Street near Dr. E.F. Gordon Square, make their way to Princess Street, veer right along Elliott Street, and back onto Court Street.

“In releasing the format today, we can also release the news that the event will be enhanced by the inclusion of club Hobby Zone that will bring the world of remote controlled cars to the same streets.

“This feature will be produced by Soulfood Promotions and Hobby Zone director, Lynwood Richardson [Brother Richie].

The 17-minute live video replay is below:

Rick Richardson says the “unprecedented event in North Hamilton will feature other surprises with demonstrations by the latest version of race bikes seen on the East End race course at South-side.”

Mr Richardson added that there “will be additional intrigue with the inclusion of a race featuring some of the island’s women celebrities, whose names will be released in the coming days.”

Last week the committee released the names of those celebrities involved in the men’s series including Cup Match record breakers Janeiro Tucker and Charlie Marshall.

On the entertainment side, United Dance Productions will render a performance, and the day will conclude with popular Reggae artist Mitchell Live-Wires Trott performing, along with an appearance by the Gombeys.

    So is this the Go_karting races like they have in Dockyard with the karts with gears. Or is this a “celebrity race” using a few old karts. My nephew used to race and I cant see the racers just letting some “celebrity” jump in their cars. I apologize if the answer is in the video but I am reading on my phone with people around and do not have a headset.

      This Race has nothing to do with the Bermuda Karting Club. The karts used will be the rentals that David Barbosa owns. The only ties to the club is that the drivers asked to race in the rental karts are members of the BKC.
