Push Cart Derby

Description

Three push cart drivers are seen racing along a road while spectators are standing on both sides of the road observing the race. A man dressed in a suit with arms outstretched is seen cherring on the winner as he approached the finish line. The Pushcart derby is a popular sporting event held in Jamaica where homemade carts that are used for street vending to transport items or as racing carts take part in races. The carts have been clocked at up to 60 miles per hour on a downhill homestretch.
