The Most Popular Sport In the Island
There have been cars in Barbados since the early years of the 20th century, and the first motor sport competition a hillclimb won by Harold Manning, founder of a motor sport dynasty now in its third generation - was held nearly 80 years ago; the Barbados Rally Club (BRC) celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2007, while the Barbados Auto Racing League (BARL) last year marked the 40th Anniversary of the opening of the island¹s racetrack, Bushy Park (which was created and run in the 1970s, then the Œ90s, by the BRC).
The BRC and BARL are among seven member clubs of the Barbados Motoring Federation, the island¹s governing body, which annually issues around 400 competition licences . . . all of motor sport¹s disciplines are covered, rallying (including historics) and circuit racing joined by autocross, dexterity, drag racing, karting and off-road navigational rallies.
