The Barbados Festival of Speed this weekend will be a major Caribbean car and bike racing event featuring as a, participant, no less a person than reigning Grand Prix Champion, Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton will drive one of his
Grand Prix cars, flown in specially for the Bushy Park event, on demonstration, but it is yet unclear whether he will compete, in the feature Suzuki Radical Challenge Series.
Guyana, however, will be strongly represented, by Calvin Ming, driving his brand new state-of- the-art Suzuki Radical, recently purchased for the event by Team Ming.
Calvin currently holds the Bushy Park track record which he recorded in practice on his less developed Radical at the last Suzuki Challenge series at Bushy Park.
A large group of spectators from Guyana are expected to fly in for the Barbados Festival of Speed and will be there to cheer on the Ming Team.
Calvin and his former bike-race champion father, Stanley, are already in Barbados preparing for the Bushy Park event. The Ming Team arrived in Barbados straight from competing in the first 2016 F1600 Formula F Championship for Team Pelfrey at Road Atlanta in the US.
Calvin had mixed results at Road Atlanta, competing in the three Formula 1600 Races. He placed 5th in his first and second races, but Ming’s driving had the spectators standing on their feet in race three. Starting from the back, as a result of a spin-out in practice, Ming fought his way to the lead in the final lap, but ended up 3rd in a 3 car neck to neck finish at the chequered flag.
After Barbados, Calvin will return to compete in the next Formula 1600 Event in the US at Watkins Glen.
