So, Minister Headley admits that the name of the sponsor is the High School Sports Infrastructure Improvement Project, not to be mistaken with the Science Laboratories Improvement Project.

I am expecting the next big investment in our high schools will be in the form of an "entertainment system", something that would allow our youngsters to train for Dancing Dynamite and Magnum Kings & Queens.
Wi nuh need nuh more proof seh Portia & di Termites dem ah eediat....

BTW...My guesstimate that the track cost about US$600K was absolutely correct....

Yet anedda D1 prognostication come to pass
