National Sports Awards

2013

School administrators, parents, students and members of the community are being encouraged to nominate teachers for the 4th annual Royal Fidelity National Distinguished Teachers’ Awards 2014.


Royal Fidelity Merchant Bank & Trust has once again teamed up with the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Innovation to present the awards, started since 2010.


Ten deserving teachers will be adjudged the “best teachers” in the country and will receive a prize of $2,000 from the Bank. The nomination period has officially begun and will close on Monday, June 30.


Teachers from both private and public schools at the nursery, primary, secondary and tertiary levels are eligible for nomination. After being shortlisted, the top teachers will be interviewed by the Blue Ribbon Judging Panel, headed by Principal of Graydon Sealy Secondary School, Matthew Farley.


“This year, in an effort to broaden the reach of the event and improve the overall recognition of the amazing contributions made by teachers, Royal Fidelity has brought on board other locally-based companies to participate in what has become the leading event to recognise the contributions of this island’s teachers,” Royal Fidelity’s Assistant Vice President, Jillian Nunes explained.


Noting that these included R. L. Mark, Chefette Restaurant Ltd. and Flow, she said their association with the competition would make it possible for nominators to have the chance to win vouchers, cash prizes and a grand prize of office equipment for the school submitting the most nominations.


For a teacher to be eligible he/she must be employed as a full-time classroom teacher, with not less than four years’ experience as of January 1, 2014. Nomination forms are available online for both completion and submission and may be accessed at www.royalfidelity.com/ndta. For further information persons may call 434-2673.

The race the World has been waiting for: Lewis Hamilton vs Ken Block

Top Gear Festival Barbados. It’s On


Top Gear Festival

Barbados 17  - 18 May 2014


Sunday 18th May 2014: It’s a race that the world of motorsport was eagerly awaiting, and Top Gear Festival Barbados didn’t let us down. For the first time ever, race ace Lewis Hamilton, took on Gymkhana star Ken Block on the beautiful island of Barbados. The all action head-to-head took place at the new Bushy Park Circuit at Top Gear Festival Barbados, which made history this weekend by hosting the first Caribbean round of the Global Rallycross Championship.


Lewis Hamilton, at the wheel of his MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One car, took on Ken Block in his Global Rallycross car on the Bushy Park Circuit and rallycross course.


The question on everyone’s lips as the engines started up was: Who will come out on top in a full three-lap race?  Head to head, which is actually faster?  A rally car or an F1 car? The answer may have seemed obvious, but when the race began between two of the best drivers in the world with the rally car on a shorter rally track, it really was anyone’s guess.


The crowd were not disappointed.  It was world-class entertainment from the start, with the two racing superstars going head to head around the track. It was a nail biting finish and in the end there was nothing between the two cars as they crossed the finish line in style, with a sequence of donuts to create the perfect photo finish.


Lewis Hamilton: “I’ve got a huge amount of respect for Ken Block as a driver so I jumped at the chance to go head to head against him in our cars at Top Gear Festival Barbados. Racing Ken is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, he’s such an exciting driver and is always pushing the boundaries with the cool stunts he does with his car! It was awesome racing against him and I can’t wait to do it again today.”


Ken Block: “"I had a ton of fun racing around with Lewis during the Top Gear Festival Barbados. I never thought I'd find myself racing an F1 car with my Ford Fiesta racecar and I'm super stoked with how it performed—especially off the line! I'm looking forward to getting out there with Lewis again today."


Top Gear Festival Barbados thrilled petrol-heads everywhere today who were treated to the first of two days of high-octane motoring action.  


Hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, together with guest presenters Eddie Jordan, Lee McKenzie and Tiff Needell, were on hand to dole out a non-stop schedule of motoring antics and visitors witnessed The Stig and key members of the Top Gear Live Stunt Driving Team take to the track in a series of stunts, races and challenges.


The action didn’t stop there and visitors were also treated to 2008 Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton demonstrating his skills in the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One car, and legendary drivers from Global Rally Cross, including Ken Block, Nelson Piquet Jr and Tanner Foust, compete in the first round of their 2014 season – an historic debut in the Caribbean for GRC.
