WICKHAM’S CAY, Tortola, VI – The BVI Motor Sports Association (BMSA) in partnership with Tortola Pier Park yesterday March 26, 2016 and families came out for a day of remote control racing, drones and face painting.

The event is one in a string of activities planned by the association as it seeks to get its face out there and it was decided that the Tortola Pier Park would be a good jumping off venue.

The event started later than the time advertised but when it did eventually start there were train rides and bouncy castles for the kids, face painting and fun races.

Later on there were remote control races for the grown folks and displays of sports cars by racing and car enthusiasts. Some of the members of the popular Street Kings showed up in their uber-loud super cars.

President of the BMSA Roy M. Thomas said the family fun day was in collaboration with Tortola Pier Park.

“It was a good day. I expected more but I guess the weather this morning changed that. We want to collaborate with the Pier Park more often with some activities in the future. We will let you know exactly when through the Public Relations Officer,” he said.

More events planned

Public Relations Officer of the BMSA Keilah M. Varlack said that the Association has a number of events planned.

“Besides today, we are going to be hosting a few more events before the year is out. We are going to be having our car show on July 30, 2016. We are also going to be having our Mother’s Day luncheon on May 6, 2016 and our Father’s Day luncheon on June 17, 2016,” she said.

Meslyn M. Allan, Leasing and Marketing Manager of Tortola Pier Park, said Tortola Pier Park always encourages events and key partnerships like the BMSA. “We have had several events since the opening so we always encourage that. It is an open facility so we always encourage persons to come in. It’s not just for the cruise passengers. It’s for the overnight guests and others,” she said.

Allan said the facility is open every day with the exception of Sundays from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm and the stores will be opened whether or not there is a cruise ship in port. She said too that stores will be open on Sundays and holidays if there is a cruise ship in.
