The Red Bull Global Rallycross Championship today confirmed that the series would be returning to Barbados again for the 2015 season following a successful event at Bushy Park in 2014.
“After an amazing reception for our début event, we are incredibly excited to bring Red Bull Global Rallycross back to Barbados for the 2015 season,” said Red Bull GRC CEO Colin Dyne.
“Bushy Park Barbados hosted one of our most amazing events on the 2014 schedule, and with the incredible work they’ve continued to put into the facility, returning was a no-brainer. We look forward to giving the Bajan fans two incredible races that should be crucial to determining 2015’s champion.”
Bushy Park was also home to the Race of Champions and since this event the venue has invested in new VIP structures with Luxury suites and a new permanent race control building.
“We were delighted that so many drivers said how much they enjoyed their visit last year,” said Bushy Park executive chairman Mark Maloney. “As a racetrack, Bushy Park Barbados presents them with a different environment and a different challenge, and I am really pleased that Red Bull GRC sees it as complimentary to their city center events in the United States, so much so that they are expanding on last year’s program with the doubleheader format.”
There will be some small adjustments to the course but as a whole the circuit layout will remain the same for the doubleheader event that will also be joined by the Red Bull GRC Lites.
The 2014 race saw Scott Speed take the victory ahead of Steve Arpin and Brian Deegan while Ken Block rolled his Ford Fiesta on the final corner.
