Let the games begin!

Today is Mother's Day and the Jamaica Karting Association (JKA) will recognise the women who have been playing an important role at the Palisadoes International Raceway in Kingston.
"We will be recognising people like Heather Eaten and Bridget Fong Yee, along with the mothers and grandmothers of the competitors, especially those who have been very supportive," said Peter Rae, president of the JKA.
This activity is expected to take place during the 9:00 a.m. scheduled meet.
The Rotax Micro Max, Mini Max and Shifter classes are expected to produce exciting and close finishes.
Although Joshua Sirgany has been impressive in the race meets overseas, he will renew rivalry with his cousin, Justin, as well as Richard Lechler in the Micro Max Class.
William Myers, Thomas Issa, Jonathan Law and Fraser McConnell are among the big guns expected to battle in the Mini Max Class.
"We might get a one-two finish because Myers and Jon are looking very good," said Sammy Law of the NG Racing Camp.
But a source close to the Issa and McConnell camp believes NG Racing is in for a big surprise. Reports are that both karters are razor sharp and the stage is set for a showdown between the two camps.
Colin Daley and Matthew Williams should fight to the wire for the chequered flag in the Junior Class. The two have always been involved in some bumper-to-bumper rivalry. Meanwhile, the Shifter Class clash between Timothy Stewart and Chris Myers promises to be a treat to the fans.
