The Barbados Tourism Authority and Top Gear Festival have announced that legendary Formula One team-owner and commentator Eddie Jordan is set to join the star-studded line-up at the inaugural Top Gear Festival Barbados, from 17-18 May.

Jordan rejoins the Festival as a host, after making an appearance at Top Gear Festival South Africa in 2011. He said: “It’s great to be going back to the Top Gear Festival. Since I last joined the team in 2011, the Top Gear Festival has grown bigger and better, and it’s fantastic to be a part of their first event in the Americas. I’m looking forward to seeing what Jeremy, James and Richard have in store for me – but also for Lewis Hamilton.”

Top Gear Festival Barbados is expected to draw tens of thousands of petrol-heads for a thrilling weekend of high-octane motoring action with Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond. The jam-packed schedule of motoring antics will see The Stig and the Top Gear Live Stunt Driving Team take to the track in a series of breathtaking stunts, races and challenges in some of the world’s most beautiful and rare machines.

Visitors are encouraged to book early so they don’t miss the most exciting new event on 2014’s entertainment and motoring calendar. Bushy Park is a short drive from the island’s capital Bridgetown and from its international airport.
