We’re All Dancing to a Champion Song

DJ Bravo’s hit Champion Song has summed up the prevailing mood in the Caribbean and Barbados right now. Our Under 19, Women’s and Men’s cricket teams took on all comers in India and came out champions in all of the ICC Twenty20 Cricket World Cup divisions. An unprecedented feat! Sufficed to say, it is a great time to be in Barbados to soak up the atmosphere, thicker than normal with swelled Bajan pride in Caribbean citizenship.

As we gear up for the annual Crop Over celebrations including our world famous Kadooment Day masquerade carnival, the festivities are wending their way into another great reason to have a good time. Revelry is the name of the game and from the end of this month until the first Monday in August, the cultural showcase is epic. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. On our way there, we first have May, the month of motorsport in Barbados.

This year sees competition happening every weekend in disciplines including karting, circuit racing, drag racing, and International rallying. There is something for everyone. The month opens with a bang with the Barbados Festival of Speed. This event is a mix of international and local motorsport, including Superbikes, Radicals, Suzuki Swifts, Monster Trucks, Banger Cars, Classic Cars and features 3-time Formula 1 World Driver’s Champion Lewis Hamilton, MBE in his Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 car.

The month culminates with the annual SOL Rally Barbados – the premiere rally event in the Caribbean which features WRC and top 2WD machinery from the Region, UK, Ireland & Europe vying to dethrone local aces. Our charge is led by Roger ‘The Sheriff’ Skeete in his Subaru Impreza WRC S12B. This local rally legend has won this event an unprecedented 13 times! If you’re a motorsport lover, jump in your rental car and get ready to follow these champions across the island.

Of course, the beautiful sunsets and scenery promised in the brochures is still in full effect. Sun sea and sand is definitely on the agenda. So if motorsport is not your thing, worry not. You can still hire a car and explore to your heart’s content. Barbados has got plenty to offer and the freedom to drive all over safely and confidently makes all the difference making your vacation epic.

Remember, load up the GPS and buckle into your rental car for the trip of a lifetime in Barbados!
