BARBADOS has driven into motorsport history with the appointment of Andrew Mallalieu as an FIA Formula 1 Steward.

Mallalieu, the president of the Barbados Motoring Federation (BMF), is the first person from the English-speaking Caribbean to be elevated to the high office of international motorsport.

His appointment was announced at the recently held Brazilian Grand Prix, where he officiated alongside chairman Garry Connelly of Australia, Spain’s Silvia Bellot and Brazilian former IndyCar racer Felipe Giaffone.

It is the third time this year that Barbados has made motor sport history. It started with the staging of the first Top Gear Festival in the Americas in May and Bushy Park’s successful bid to become the first permanent circuit to host the Race Of Champions (ROC) on December 13 and 14.
