The Barbados Auto Racing League, together with title sponsors Williams Industries, Digicel, Seaboard Marine and all our associate sponsors, welcome competitors and visitors to the most anticipated event on our calendar . . . the Williams Digicel International Race Meet, featuring round two of the Seaboard Marine Caribbean Motor Racing Championship.

 

Bushy Park celebrates 40 years of existence this year . . . from humble beginnings as a dirt track back in 1971, to this, the eve of redevelopment, she has played host to many race meets, competitors and several types of racing machinery. Some of the greats that have scorched her surface during the height of her evolution look back in awe at how the years have passed, but marvel at the excitement emanating from her environs with the staging of an event such as this.

 

The excitement continues as this famous facility plays host to the stars of today - King, Maloney, Mayers, Summerbell, Vieira and Williams - but also embraces those from the golden era, Phillips, Johnson, Poole, Spice, Watkins and Williams (again!) . . . we’re blessed to have most of these in our midst today. With the smell of burned rubber and spent fuel in the air, heartbeats will quicken, competitors and fans alike, in anticipation of exhilarating thrills synonymous with such an event.

 

Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad . . . and Ireland. Welcome! Barbados embraces you, not only as competitors but as neighbours and friends. We encourage you to race hard but fair and wish all a competitive, fun-filled and safe weekend.

 

God speed . . . Good luck!
