This had to happen at some point. The compass needle of vintage racing was simply bound to swing back toward the Bahamas. That was where the greats of international motorsport held their winter busman’s holiday between 1954 and 1966. To be sure, they raced in exotic rolling stock, but it was just as much a winter party caressed by warm Atlantic breezes.


Bahamas Speed Week is being revived, just in time for you to escape the nor’easters and snow squalls and join the fun. The Speed Week Revival will take place next year on its traditional dates, November 30 through December 4, in Nassau. Fifty vintage race cars are invited, led by a brace of traditionalist Ferraris. The action will include an island tour, time trial on a street circuit, drag racing, a concours and more. Visit www.bahamasspeedweekrevival.com for more information.
