Weekend of motor thrills
Qualifying and practice sessions will be the highlight of the opening day’s action of the Barbados Motoring Federation’s Club Meet at Bushy Park starting at 9 a.m. tomorrow, and an hour earlier on Sunday.
But clerk of the course Adrian Linton said that with some drivers still preparing their cars, the clubs have given drivers an extra day in order to get their entries in.
“It is going to be very exciting this weekend. It’s like ‘one-stop’ for all your motoring action, with karting, demonstrations and racing by the Radical Cars, practice sessions for drivers entered under the banner of the Barbados Association of Drifters (BADD), the Bushy Park Motor Sports Inc. (BPMSI),” Linton said.
He said invitations were also sent to the Barbados Rally Club and the Motoring Club Barbados Inc. whose drivers will be afforded to get their respective entries in by today.
And Courtesy Garage handed over the sponsor’s cheque to the Barbados Association of Dragsters and Drifters in a ceremony in the showroom at Wildey on Wednesday. Linton said that after practice and qualifying tomorrow, there’s going to some very interesting action.
Racing by the Radical Cars will open the action, and drivers of the Barbados Karting Association (BKA) will keep the circuit busy before the drivers of BADD make their presence felt at the St Philip facility, which is scheduled to host the Race Of Champions from December 13 to 14.
The BPMSI will settle their first race at 3:15 p.m. before the BKA complete races three and four, after settling races one and two, two hours earlier.
Sunday’s action, according to the organisers, has been set aside for one qualifying round by BADD and final races organised by the BKA and the BPMSI before three handicap races, which will include the Radical Cars, bring the curtain down on the day’s action.
