If ever an event deserved to be revived, it was the Nassau Speed Weeks. Originally held between 1954 and 1966, names like Hill, McLaren, Penske, Gurney and, of course, Stirling Moss feature on the trophies. It was a high-octane end of season “playoff” in the sun between the Americans and Europeans who met for some serious racing and even more serious partying! And so, in November 2011, a full two years after the Bahamas Speed Week Revival was conceived, “battle” recommenced—although, for that inaugural event, the race was on not only to see who could have the best time, but who could record it! At the forefront of this mission was Speed Week Patron Sir Stirling Moss who maintained, “In my day I went to race and the others to party—I think in 2011 it was the other way around!”
Having proved it could be done last year, the organizers have expanded and refined the program for 2012 with extended support from their 2011 partners/sponsors and the Bahamian Government. What’s more, Stirling had such a good time he asked to be allowed to do it all over again—how could they refuse!
