A CADRE OF top-class drivers is being shortlisted for the second Barbados Festival Of Speed later this year.

Operations manager at Bushy Park Circuit Inc. (BPCI), Amy Willis, told a press briefing at the St Philip racing facility at the weekend that October 14 is the date set for the event and more information will be released in the coming months.

But she pointed out that former Formula 1 world champion Jenson Button will headline the event which will be a one-day affair and will run from day into night and promised that it will be an epic experience for spectators.

“We are delighted that Jenson has agreed to head-line the second Festival Of Speed. He knows the island well from spending family holidays here in the past and tells us he is greatly looking forward to visiting again and we wish him well at Monaco in just a couple of weeks,” Willis noted. (TT)
