The Barbados Auto Racing League (BARL) wants Government to shift into high gear and come up with a solution that will allow it to finally use the newly developed racetrack at Bushy Park, St Philip.
BARL, with a membership of almost 100 drivers, has been forced to sit on the sidelines since Bushy Park reopened earlier this year, and was showcased to the world during the Top Gear Festival earlier in May.
Chairman of BARL, Stefan Hinds, told the WEEKEND NATION yesterday that BARL, through its umbrella organisation, the Barbados Motor Federation (BMF), had presented Government with a proposal to allow them use of the new track.
“Everything is with Government at the moment, for them to determine what is reasonable. We have put forward our suggestions and are working with the BMF, since they are party to the licensing agreement involving the track.
“We made a presentation based on what we believe to be a reasonable amount for rent, or access fee to the facility, based on our experience over the past 18 years of hosting events at Bushy Park,” the president revealed.
The proposal was handed over to Government two weeks ago.
