Roett, Arthur Large Tyre muddogs
EDSON ARTHUR and Renata Roett drove away with the Large Tyre category of the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) Chefette Muddogs Mudfest at Searles Quarry on Tuesday.
Competing in a Toyota Hilux, they mastered the challenging conditions and triumphed over the pairs of Mark Western and Noel Edwards in a Nissan Patrol Hard Body and Dominic Straker and Nicholas Pinto, who were also competing in a Nissan Patrol Wagon
The conditions, however, seemed to have had the better of the favoured competitors Rodney “Ramma” Mason and Nicholas Lorde and Dave Sealy.
But it was an all-Suzuki Samurai affair in the Small Tyre category as Adrian Sinckler and Kerry Renee; David Gibson and Andy Williams; and Damien Johnson and Rorie “Potta” McConney grabbed the top three places, leaving no room for Matthew Durant or Deon Olton.
Results were much different in the Mud Pit challenges for the Small Tyre category as Gibson, who had to be content with second place earlier, turned the tables on the competition to finish in winners’ row in Mud Pit 1 and 2, ahead of Sinckler, Johnson and Durant. Arthur showed that his performance on the day was no fluke as he brushed aside the challenges in Mud Pit 1 and 2 for the Large Tyre category.
He showed Straker, Western, Mason and Sealy the way home to bring the curtain down on the day’s action. Twelve pairs took part in the day’s event.
