Bushy Park track almost complete
BARBADOS IS well on the way to having a world-rated motor racing facility – and a mid-May date with popular TV show Top Gear and racing legend Lewis Hamilton.
Spokesman for the company behind the multimillion dollar upgrade of the Bushy Park race track in St Philip, Mark Hamilton, said today that relaying of the track was “99 per cent complete” and progress was being made in other areas.
Hamilton, who represents Bushy Park Circuit Inc., said thousands of tickets had already been sold for the two days of motor racing.
The first programme for the reopened facility will be the Top Gear Festival, which is making its Caribbean and Americas debut. Hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, Top Gear Festival Barbados is said to be featuring an “awe-inspiring” line-up of cars and driving talent. (TY)
