Top Gear Barbados! Lewis Hamilton to star in the Caribbean's first petrol-head festival

Posted by Shanelle Weir on February 21, 2014

The Top Gear boys are known for staging stunts in exotic locations, so perhaps it is no surprise that they have decided to create a festival celebrating all things automobile in the Caribbean. Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond will be jetting off to Barbados in May for the island's inaugural Top Gear Festival. And they're taking fellow petrol head and Caribbean fan Lewis Hamilton along for the ride.

The Grand Prix ace, whose grandparents hail from the nearby island of Grenada, has confirmed that he will be the headliner for the Caribbean's first Top Gear event and will also take to the newly-refurbished Bushy Park Circuit to complete a series of challenges set by Clarkson and his team.Speaking about the event, Hamilton said: 'I cannot wait to touch down in Barbados for the Top Gear Festival. 

'I love the island and have been on the TV show a few times and always have a lot of fun, so I’m excited to experience the spirit of Top Gear at a live event. I can’t wait to see what Jeremy, James and Richard have in store for me.'

Barbados is normally famed as the hangout for celebrities seeking winter sunshine, but will be converted into a car-lover's paradise over the weekend of May 17 and 18, with live stunt driving, antics from The Stig, as well as multiple races and hair-raising challenges.
