By repute the Nassau Speed Weeks had the second largest purse in racing to the Indy 500.
The Bahamas Speed Week Revival will take place from 24th November – 2nd December this year and although the purse may be smaller the parties will be just as good !
The latest exciting entry for 2012 is the Cooper Monaco driven by Jack Brabham in Nassau in 1959.
