Back-to-back challenges late yesterday afternoon kept crews close together at the first stopover of the Sol Go Further 55th anniversary June Safari of the Muddogs championship of the Barbados Rally Club.
Positions were not available at press time, but leaders Chris Armstrong and Wayne “Mort” Clarke, in a Toyota Hilux, were among the early pairs disposing of the challenges as the light faded.
The driver challenges held in the irrigation pond and Armag Quarry at Chapel Plantation, St Philip, also brought out the rescue tractor as some crews became stuck in the pond before heading to the gully challenge in the closely-fought battle for the title in both the overall and Chefette novice championships.
The first crew left the start of the Safari at Haggatt Hall, St Michael, at 2:01 p.m. yesterday and will finish at Mahogany Ridge, St Thomas, around 9 a.m. today.
Divided into four routes to allow three refreshment breaks for crews during the night, the Safari was set by Peter Bradshaw and Renata Roett.
The prizegiving ceremony for the event will be held at the Barbados Clay Target Shooting Association’s club house at Searles, Christ Church, tomorrow after the results have been made official.
