Top Gear Festival Barbados

TopGearFestival-1024x1024Attention all Top Gear Fans! The world’s greatest motoring theatre show will get underway this Saturday, May 17, 2014 at the Bushy Park Race Circuit, St. Philip, Barbados. Hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, the stage is set to feature a breathtaking line up of cars and driving entertainment including The Stig, The Top Gear Stunt Team and guest drivers from the world of motor sport and entertainment. Top Gear Live events are renowned for featuring a number of jaw-dropping stunts including the world’s first indoor loop-the-loop which earned the show a Guinness World Record, F1 ice cream van, a heart-stopping 300 ft car bungee and a fleet of flaming 911 Porsches. Word on the street is, fans are anticipating an extraordinary display from Lewis Hamilton following the announcement that he is set to race in his Mercedes AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team Car. Hamilton, whose passion for motor racing began at the tender age of eight, has had an enviable career which includes records for the most consecutive podium finishes from debut, most wins and pole positions in a debut season and most notably was the youngest driver to win the F1 World Driver’s Championship back in 2008. article-2564688-1BB3869200000578-432_634x344
Officials of the Festival asserted that fans will be treated to the “spine-tingling roar” of the F1 W04’s Mercedes- Benz Formula One engine as the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS. Additionally, they will get the chance to witness Lewis drive in only his second season with Mercedes – having joined the Silver Arrows works team for the 2013 season – and achieving five pole positions in his F1 W04. Hamilton, 29, joins an illustrious list of F1 supermoes, World Champions and race winners to appear at a Top Gear Festival including David Coulthard, Mark Webber, Mika Hakkinen, Jody Scheckter and Eddie Jordan. 10269577_249542268566981_2826943725306829611_n Jordan rejoins the Festival as a host, after making an appearance at Top Gear Festival South Africa in 2011. He said: “It’s great to be going back to the Top Gear Festival. Since I last joined the team in 2011, the Top Gear Festival has grown bigger and better, and it’s fantastic to be a part of their first event in the Americas. I’m looking forward to seeing what Jeremy, James and Richard have in store for me – but also for Lewis Hamilton.” As Barbados is home to the Caribbean’s biggest annual motor sport international, Sol Rally, Top Gear Festival Barbados promises to bring some of the quickest, fastest and most sophisticated rally cars ever built-in the Group B Rally Car Showdown to ensure a fantastic rallying spectacle.
