Attendees at this “Green-collar racing”™ event will be able to observe that one horsepower can be just as electrifying as 600 horsepower. Sam Stathis, Founder and Chairman of the World Chariot Racing Association and Owner of Celebrity Farms, remarked, “I’ve sat behind fast cars, fast boats, and fast planes and I can attest that one horse power is just as exciting as 600. And, if the excitement is not enough to win you over, the byproduct of our one horsepower is not detrimental to the environment, it helps to nurture it.” With this event, the World Chariot Racing Association aims to increase the public’s exposure to environmentally friendly chariot-style horse racing which is as equally thrilling as auto racing competitions.
