Event Details

Get ready for the most exciting event of the year at the Barbados Festival of Speed 2017!! 

On Saturday 14th October, the Twister Aerobatics Team, the only European outfit certified to fly after-dark shows, will light up the skies at Bushy Park Racing Circuit, in its first-ever performance in the Americas. The British-based team is the first act confirmed to join former Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button at the second BFoS, which will be the first event to benefit from the installation of Bushy Park’s new all-arena lighting.

Starting at 2.00pm, the event will run from day into night and provide an ideal opportunity to showcase both elements of the aerial display.  The spectacular Twilight Pyrotechnic Display is performed in a pair of 180mph Silence SA1100 Twister aircraft, which bear a passing resemblance to the famous WWII Spitfire fighter plane.  The Twister team’s traditional daytime display is an aerial ballet, combining sweeping, close-formation loops and barrel rolls with synchronised and opposition aerobatics, all within a tight space and always in front of the spectators. As day moves into night, the team switches to its acclaimed Twilight Pyrotechnic Display. As well as specially developed pyrotechnic effects streaming from the wingtips, the aircraft also feature high-powered spot-lamps to illuminate the display smoke and coloured LEDs along the fuselage.  

The eight-hour show will include a cross-section of local motor sport activities alongside other acts yet to be confirmed.
