‘Not racist’

We are no racists.

That was the strident declaration of chairman of Bushy Park Circuit Inc. (BPCI), Mark Maloney, as he responded to the ongoing public battle with the Barbados Auto Racing League (BARL) over access to the car racing circuit.

Maloney said there had been innuendos suggesting the BPCI was playing a racial game, and making motor sport in Barbados a black-and-white issue.

“It seems we have the bullseye on our backs. No one should talk about black or white. People are making it seem like these white people are taking advantage of Blacks in motoring. It’s negative and misleading. We are in no way racist. My grandfather was a black man. How could we be racist?”

Maloney also responded to a number of claims made by BARL’s chairman Stefan Hinds, who said last week they were still being denied reasonable access to the redeveloped Bushy Park, forcing them to stage their track day, today, at the seldom used circuit at Vaucluse, St Thomas.
