Islanders welcomed Lewis Hamilton at the Top Gear Festival Barbados event and are super excited to see him again in May’s Festival of Speed 2016! The nine-hour programme will be packed with a broad cross-section of motoring and motor sport action on two and four wheels, including British Superbike and Micro Banger Champions from the UK, Monster Truck and Stunt Bike stars from the USA, along with local and regional content, including the Suzuki Challenge Series Swift Cup and SR3 Cup.

The family-friendly day will also include music from the Barbados Defence Force Band, a lunchtime show featuring Rupee, a parade of classic cars and other activities that will give this new event on the annual motoring calendar a very specific Caribbean twist.
