Bushy Park Motor Sports Inc (BPMSI) is joining forces with the Barbados Karting Association (BKA) and the Barbados Association of Dragsters & Drifters (BADD) to end its 2016 season in style with a packed day – and night – of action at Bushy Park Barbados on Sunday, October 30.
The BKA will stage the penultimate round of its SDRR Motorsport/Chefette Championship during the morning, with BPMSI taking to the track from 2.00pm – the first half of the 12-race programme will run in daylight, the second under floodlights. The programme will feature the final rounds of the Suzuki Challenge Series Summer Season and two Handicap Races each for cars and bikes for competitors who contested the BPMSI’s 2016 Championship.
There will be four Swift Cup and SR3 Cup races in one day for the first time, the extra race added to complete the planned seasonal total, as there were only two races in each series at the Barbados Festival of Speed in May; as at last year’s day-night race meet, the final races will be shorter than usual – six laps for the Swifts, eight for the Radicals – which made for some thrilling action last time round.
BADD has been allocated three hour-long slots in the timetable for its third event of the season, Dragwarz 3: NA vs Turbo vs NOS vs Electric. Practice will run in daylight, immediately after the BPMSI’s preliminary track sessions, then Qualifying and Eliminations and Grudge Matches run in the cool of the evening.
BPMSI Chairman Sean Maloney said: “The three Clubs are joining together to stage what we believe will be an unrivalled day of on-track action and I expect that we will see a few of our members fitting some runs in with BADD. We have worked hard on planning the logistics to ensure that we have the lighting towers up and operating, so that we keep the down time to a minimum. I hope that the fans will turn out in their numbers.”
