?TWENTY-TW0 tarmac stages and a little more that 120 kilometres will get the attention of a record 101 pairs from 15 nations to contest Sol Rally Barbados today and tomorrow.
And based on the results of last weekend’s Sol Go Further/Scotiabank King Of The Hill, England’s Paul Bird and Scottish co-driver Kirsty Riddick will lead the field out of the Greenland Agricultural Station as car No. 1 in the Frank Bird Poultry/Fuchs-Silkolene Ford Focus WRC08.
Bird and Riddick, who wrote their names in the Sol Rally Barbados history book when they became the first foreign competitors to win the event, are in good form and, buoyed by their performance last week, are among the favourites.
Last year’s champion and a 12-time winner of the Barbados Rally Club’s prestigious rally, Roger ‘The Sheriff’ Skeete, and co-driver Louis Venezia in the Sol/Michelin/Dacosta Mannings Auto Centre/Simpson Motors Subaru Impreza WRC S12 will follow Bird and Riddick.
