In Barbados the summer never ends, just ask Lewis Hamilton! A Barbados vacation is a great way for arguably one of the greatest F1 drivers to relax and unwind. If you are a motorsport fan you can do the same, lounging poolside by a luxury Barbados villa while also enjoying one of the most engaging and thrilling spectator sports.
Motorsport in Barbados has grown significantly especially since the island hosted the exciting Top Gear Festival, bringing the likes of Jeremy Clarkson and Lewis Hamilton to the island. Since then Lewis has returned more than once, proving that a Barbados luxury vacation is a MUST!
Take advantage of some of Island Villas’ exclusive scorching Summer Specials and book your flights to be here for the Barbados Historic Rally Carnival. From Aug 18-28 discover the heart-racing thrills of this annual event open to rally cars with no modern day modifications. The competition will be fierce!
Motorsport can also be a great Barbados family vacation. The new, modern Bushy Park Barbados is the leading circuit-racing facility in the English-speaking Caribbean. In addition to its 2.01-kilometre International Circuit, built to meet FIA Grade 3 requirements, there is a Rallycross Track, CIK Grade A Kart Circuit and a one-eighth-of-a-mile Drag Strip. Bushy Park has now introduced Kidz Karting for children between the ages of five to twelve years old. The package includes a full safety briefing, an introduction to the Biz Evo Junior Karts and a driving experience. Parents are welcome to join their kids on the track for a group session – this is maximum fun for the entire family!
