Our very own Banger Racer, Pete ‘Bodja’ Osborne, took part in the Barbados Festival of Speed last month – in his very own Rouden Hydratek sponsored banger – of course!
The Barbados Festival of Speed attracts many racing enthusiasts from all over the world and even the Caribbean F1 champion, Lewis Hamilton graced the shores with his presence! Not bad ey? This year, the globally advertised event attracted a crowd of 18,000 people all pumped up and ready to watch a multitude of races, including monster trucks, F1 cars, British superbikes, motor cross stunts, the Suzuki swift challenge and the Radicals! Pete participated in two races and finished his time in Barbados with the ‘Destruction Derby’ – which is a real crowd pleaser with the contestants’ barrel rolling their cars for added entertainment!
If all this doesn’t sound crazy enough, Pete was even crowned with the ‘Entertainer of the Day Award’ with his car setting on fire proving to be a particular highlight!
You can check out some of the event footage below – be sure to look out for Pete in car 243! You can even see Lewis bottling it and giving his car to someone else…smashing!
Banger Racers were such a success at this year’s Barbados Festival of Speed, Pete has been invited back to participate in the event next year along with all the other racers, well done Pete!
