Armstrong emerges 2-wheel champ
NEIL ARMSTRONG stopped an onslaught by four-wheel drive competitors at the Motoring Club Barbados Inc.’s Field Insurance/Barbados Today 11-K speed event from Drax Hall to Cliff last Sunday.
In fact, only Paul “The Surfer” Bourne and Roger “The Sheriff” Skeete – who finished first and second, respectively – had any answer to the might of Armstrong in the Chefette/Hankook Tyres/Lubriguard Toyota Starlet in the event called Hammertime, which attracted 40 drivers.
Armstrong, who picked good lines throughout the afternoon’s action on the long and twisty course, was consistently third behind the front-runners and posted a personal best time of four minutes, 34.03 seconds on his second use of the course. His feat also gave him the two-wheel drive title.
Bourne, competing in the Chefette/LIME/Banks/SLAM 101 FM/MQI Ford Focus WRC, turned in the day’s fastest time of 4:28 minutes achieved on the final run after he had returned times of 4:37 minutes and 4:30 minutes, respectively.
