Motor racing fans in Barbados were in top gear last week with Formula One World Championship leader Lewis Hamilton taking on the Bushy Park racing circuit for Top Gear Festival Barbados.
The BBC television series is rated as the world’s most widely watched factual television programme, with millions of viewers, and its presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are a hit with Barbadian fans.
At a reception to celebrate Top Gear Festival Barbados, hosted by British High Commissioner Victoria Dean, guests could hardly contain themselves when Hamilton arrived for the party attended by a motley group of invitees – celebrities, local and international motorsport officials and fans, tourism officials and many others.
