Top Gear Festival Barbados thrilled petrol-heads everywhere who were treated to two days of high-octane motoring action. Hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, together with guest presenters Eddie Jordan, Lee McKenzie and Tiff Needell, were on hand to dole out a non-stop schedule of motoring antics and visitors witnessed The Stig and key members of the Top Gear Live Stunt Driving Team take to the track in a series of stunts, races, and challenges. The action didn’t stop there and patrons were awed by 2008 Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton demonstrating his skills in the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One car, and legendary drivers from Red Bull Global Rallycross, including Ken Block, Nelson Piquet Jr, and Tanner Foust, competing in the first round of their 2014 season– an historic debut in the Caribbean for GRC.
