After the tremendous success of Top Gear in Barbados in 2014, the weekend of the 7 and 8 May saw the inaugural Barbados Festival of Speed. Once again Geest Line was ever present supporting this prestigious event by being the carrier of choice for vehicles from the UK to Bushy Park. This year it was difficult to look into Barbados’ world class racing circuit without seeing Geest Line branding.
Geest line is very proud to have been trading in Barbados since 1961. Captain Peter Dixon, Managing Director of Geest Line said ‘Due to our long association with Barbados Geest Line is very much viewed as part of the commercial family on the island, as such it is very important to us to continue to support such events which bring the islands and the wider global community together.’
Once again Lewis Hamilton was in attendance with his team, undoubtedly the star of the show he lit up the circuit in Bushy Park with his 2013 F1 car. Also taking part were Monster trucks from the USA and banger cars from the UK. But perhaps the highlight for the younger kart and aspiring F1 drivers was when Lewis took to the track to race against them.
