About us

The Massy United Insurance Driving Skills Academy is a new initiative to bring a professional defensive driving development programme to the Caribbean in order to offer professional drivers and the general driving public alike, life-saving high-performance skills, and a better understanding of the mechanics of vehicle dynamics and systems.

The Massy United Insurance Driving Skills Academy is a collaboration between two of Barbados’ leading authorities in their respective fields; Massy United Insurance and Bushy Park Circuit Inc. Both organisations have a serious commitment to reduce the amount of death and destruction on the island’s road network, and the Massy United Insurance Driving Academy programs are a direct response to the spiralling accident statistics.

Massy United Insurance Ltd. is one of the leading general insurance companies in the Caribbean. With a network of agencies and branches spread throughout 18 regional territories, their strength lies in their people – their highly skilled, customer-oriented team members, who take excellent care of their growing portfolio of clients across the region that trust them to protect the things that are important to them. They are known for their prompt service and comprehensive insurance solutions, and their customers know that they can rely on them.

Bushy Park Barbados is the leading circuit-racing facility in the English-speaking Caribbean. With a 2.01- kilometre FIA Grade 3 International Circuit and a 1.2k CIK-FIA Grade A Kart Circuit. It hosts club racing, including the one-make Suzuki Challenge Series for Swift Sports and Radical SR3s, drag racing, motorcycle racing, karting and track days. Bushy Park Barbados is proud to be the home of the Barbados Festival of Speed and now the Massy United Insurance Driving Skills Academy.
