2012 Revival Information

The 2012 Bahamas Speed Week Revival has an improved and expanded programme. What’s more, 2011 Patron Stirling Moss had such a good time he asked if he could do it all over again!

Fabulous scenery, great weather and an equally-great atmosphere, it’s no wonder many have pledged to return in 2012!

This year’s Bahamas Speed Week Revival is taking place between 24th November and 2nd December. Building on the success of 2011′s revival, the programme has been expanded to include a Gala Concert, Auto Trade Show, Out Island Excursions, Beach Party and much more. There are only 60 entries available and they’re going fast…

The event is designed to be totally inclusive, so when it comes to the timed elements of the event, drivers can choose whether they wish to go for a time or take their partners up the Fort Charlotte Hillclimb or on the Arawak Cay Circuit and can do so on a run-by-run basis.
