8th June 2022 – (Hong Kong) The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) will hold “Toy Formula 1 · Lai Chi Kok Park” on 19th June (Sunday) as the first event of its [email protected] campaign. By taking part in radio-controlled model car parades, demonstrations and other activity sessions in Lai Chi Kok Park on the day, members of the public can experience the vibrancy of the park amid the joyful and celebratory ambience of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR). This campaign is under the exclusive sponsorship of the Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC), and is one of the many initiatives supported by the HKJC’s approved donation of $630 million to the Government of the HKSAR to mark the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR, demonstrating that the HKJC is resolute in pursuing its purpose of acting continuously for the betterment of society, all in support of creating a stronger community together.

Experienced participants can show their skills in a large racing circuit measuring about 35 metres by 20m, while beginners may experience the fun of operating radio-controlled model off-road cars and motorcycles on the two smaller racing circuits. Participants can also look around and take pictures of the different types of radio-controlled model cars on display in the parade area. Professionals will be present at the event to offer guidance and assistance to participants, as well as share their experience through demonstrations.
