Local racers share centre stage with International visitors

Local motor sport is not forgotten at BFoS, with a cross-section of local disciplines on show. Topping the local bill will be the final rounds of the Suzuki Challenge Series SR3 Cup and Swift Cup . . . and the fight for both titles is going down to the last two races. The Barbados Association of Dragsters & Drifters (BADD) has created seven very closely-matched pairs to entertain (and educate) the crowd with examples of the various classes that race regularly, also targetting possibly the first 5-second pass on the venue’s one-eighth-mile strip. The Barbados Karting Association (BKA) will stage a demonstration Handicap Race, while it will be all business for Bushy Park Motor Sports Inc (BPMSI) competitors, as the Hilti Handicap is the final round of the 2017 Championship, with just a four-point spread across the top four drivers.
Cultural half-time show and Festival Village complete the package

During the break between the daylight and night-time activities, there will be a cultural extravaganza, produced by AJA and starring Alison Hinds, Nikita and Marz Ville, along with the Mosaic Steelpan Band, a fire-eater, dancers and stilt walkers. Up on The Hill, behind the traditional spectator area in the north, The Festival Village will be the site of a variety of displays, including the Force India VJR09, along with the marquee for autograph sessions with Jenson Button and Esteban Ocon, and a broad cross-section of food & beverage booths to suit all tastes.
