All roads led to Lang’ata this past Saturday as Kenyans were treated to a thrilling day of fun, food and GP Karting at the Johnnie Walker Circuit Party.

Aimed at recreating the international motor racing sport, Formula One, the event helped to usher in the Canadian Grand Prix qualifying session by having their very own ‘formula one’ competition.

Through a series of qualifying sessions, participants got a chance to show off their driving skills on the GP Karting circuit, after which the top ten winners were selected.

The winners walked away with a 750 ml bottle of Johnnie Walker Black.

To wind up the day, fans were kept entertained by electrifying performances from Kagwe Mungai, Trina, Gin Ideal, Khaligraph Jones, King Kaka, Nigerian artist Ketchup and DJ Exclusive.

Joining the festivities were the official Johnnie Walker Brand Ambassadors Maina Kageni and Adelle Onyango who kept the party alive throughout the night.
