With Top Gear Festival Barbados kicking off this weekend the guys have been enjoying their free time in the Carribean resort by soaking up the sun and enjoying the beach!
Having flown out on Monday drivers Shane Lynch and Shane O’Sullivan (along with pit crew members Shane Finn and Ant Thompson) have been making the most of some much-needed downtime in the run-up to this weekend’s hectic schedule alongside superstars such as Lewis Hamilton, Ken Block and Travis Pastrana.
Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are also in attendance along with some of the shows well-known feature cars, including this heavily abused Golf that featured in the last series.
The boys also hit up the Bushy Park circuit which, upon arrival, was still having the finishing touches added to it in preparation for the weekend’s events!
In the meantime, there was time for a few beers with the more than friendly construction workers…
After a few days of larking around on the beach and taking in the sights and sounds…
…it was time to get serious and hit up the circuit for some practice! With the climate in Barbados being very different to that of the UK & Ireland heat will be our biggest enemy this weekend and it is imperative that we keep temperatures as low as possible. Thankfully, with the help of our extensive cooling setups and Evans Waterless coolant we are confident that we will be able to avoid any major issues.
