Speed Week

Revival

From 2011 to 2013, the spirit of the Speed Weeks were revived in a four-day event that included a concours at Lyford Cay, a hillclimb, an island tour, a fabulous display of the cars on Bay Street and culminated in timed sprints on a specially constructed street course in Arawak Cay, between Cable Beach and downtown Nassau.

The Speed Week Revival's  Grand Patron was Sir Stirling Moss, who won his first Nassau race in 1956 driving a borrowed Maserati 300S.

 The Birth of 

 EduKarting 

A group of enthusiasts headed by David McLaughlin, Jimmy Lowe and Brendan Foulkes, worked tirelessly with the Bahamian Government to bring the Speed Weeks back to The Bahamas.

 

The 2012 event saw a group of young kart drivers from the UK and the USA demonstrate their skills on track. They also promoted karting through visits to local schools, hoping to promote interest in motorsport in the community, and so the EduKarting Bahamas project was born.
