We had the opportunity to attend the Annual Speed Week in the Bahamas last week. This is a very popular race with classic cars that were in vogue back in the Le Mans and Sebring days. It took place November 24 through December 2nd and it did not disappoint. These classic cars looked very cool racing through the streets of the capital in Nassau, New Providence.
To qualify to race, the automobiles had to be classic road cars from 1954 to 1980 and had to be in good, race-worthy condition. Vehicles included Astin Martins, Ferraris, Jaguars, Maserati and even a DeLorean. Participants came in from all over the globe, but particularly USA, England, and some local autos as well. Former guests from 2011 included Sir Stirling Moss and Sir Sean Connery.
It was extremely fun watching these glamorous vehicles racing down the narrow, winding streets of beautiful Nassau, Bahamas. If you get the opportunity to attend next year, you are certain to enjoy the hospitality and tropical scenery that makes the Bahamas so popular for travelers.
