Al and Jay Bodden Memorial is an annual Cayman Motorsports Association race. Al and Jay Bodden were huge contributors to racing in Cayman. Father Jay Bodden owned the land on which the Progressive Loop in George Town now sits.
Jay Bodden helped Grand Cayman make the transition to a modern transportation system.
His first business venture with his brother Hubert was Bodden and Bodden Development Company Limited, dealing in heavy equipment in the mid 1960s. Four years later the brothers set up Caribbean Stone Products Limited.
Their next major venture was to establish Island Paving Limited, Cayman's oldest paving company.
Mr. Bodden's community involvement is exemplified by the donation of a large piece of land now known as the Savannah/Newlands Play Field, the site of many district events; the beautification of Bodden Town and in the small acts of kindness he undertook for the district's elderly. He was officially presented with the Queen's Certificate and Badge of Honour by His Royal Highness Prince Andrew in April of 2000.
He was awarded the Honorary Member Certificate by the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman Central.
