A stellar line-up of first-class racing drivers will be heading to the island of Barbados in May for the Top Gear Festival.
We’ve just had word from the Barbados Tourism Authority and Top Gear Festival that 2008 Formula One World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, is set to join the motor sports legends at the event.
The Top Gear Festival will make its Americas debut on the Caribbean island of Barbados at the newly renovated Bushy Park Circuit on 17-18 May, 2014. The BBC programme’s famous hosts - Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May – will feature an awe-inspiring line up of cars and driving talent including The Stig and the Top Gear Stunt Team.
“I cannot wait to touch down in Barbados for the Top Gear Festival,” commented Hamilton. “I love the island and have been on the TV show a few times and always have a lot of fun, so I’m excited to experience the spirit of Top Gear at a live event. I can’t wait to see what Jeremy, James and Richard have in store for me!”
Like Inspiring Travel Company, Hamilton’s roots are in the Caribbean - with his grandparents, on his father’s side, hailing from Grenada. The 29-year-old will appear alongside David Coulthard, Mark Webber, Mika Hakkinen, Jody Scheckter and Eddie Jordan at the event.
Petra Roach, Vice President Sales & Marketing, Barbados Tourism Authority said: “The addition of Hamilton to the already stellar line-up really does position Top Gear Festival Barbados as the ultimate event taking place in the Caribbean this summer. We’re incredibly excited to be sharing this news, but watch this space for even more announcements that will make it impossible for you to not want to attend!”
