Drivers tune up engines

Social Share

BUSHY PARK racing circuit was a hive of activity yesterday on the eve of the Barbados Auto Racing League’s (BARL) Digicel/Williams Industries International Race Meet.All day vehicles were turning up at the St Philip track with racing cars in tour, while the overseas competitors were busy taking out equipment from the containers which were located next to their work bays and reassembling parts to their cars. Even the bikers seemed totally focused on getting their machines ready for the challenge.Early in the morning the practice runs were delayed as repairs were carried out on the inner field and for the rest of the afternoon work continued on the VIP stand, while concessionaires were erecting their stalls. An itinerant vendor seized the opportinity to fire up her grill and serve hamburgers and hotdogs, whose savoury smells rivalled the exhaust and burning rubber. Mechanics and drivers took the opportunity to come and enjoy the offerings. (KB)
