BARBADOS?COULD be losing out on much-needed foreign exchange and visitors to the island because the biggest event in motor sports, the Seaboard Marine Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC), will not be held here this year.
The Barbados Auto Racing League (BARL), organizer of the annual event, failed in its attempts to get the three-day race to take place at the Bushy Park track in St Philip, due to the multimillion dollar construction upgrade which was supposed to be taking place there.
The construction, which was scheduled to begin on July 1, has not gotten off the ground, but BARL?has been denied permission to host the much-anticipated event which was supposed to begin on September 1.
BARL’s president Stefan Hinds told the SUNDAY?SUN?they had done everything possible to have the annual event take place but the brakes had been applied by the Barbados Motoring Federation (BMF) as well as the developers of Bushy Park.
