Scottish champ booked

Social Share

Four-time Scottish national class champion Kenny Hall is among more than 40 entries received so far for the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) Sol Rally Barbados scheduled for June 1 and 2 next year.
Hall, a visitor since 2002, and co-driver Fenny Wesselink of the Netherlands, who will be on her eighth trip to the Caribbean’s biggest annual motorsport international rally, are yet to decide on what car they will drive.
But they have made alternative entries for either the Opel Corsa in which Hall was first seen in Barbados, or the ex-works Ford Puma S1600 in which he has campaigned in the past three years.
Among the other entries is Andrew Costin-Hurley, on his tenth visit, with co-driver Rob Brook, back for his eighth, who will be driving his self-built rear-wheel-drive Puma, in which they won Group B in Rally Barbados in 2007 and 2008.  
Brook, who was once a driver in the event, and has also acted as a steward, competed as a co-driver four times in four different cars. It will be his second time in the Puma.
Another competitor to have fulfilled official roles in recent years is Welshman Paul “Tourist Man” Rees, who is yet to name a co-driver and whose Vauxhall Astra is entered in the historic class.
It will be his fourth outing as a competitor since 2003, when he finished fourth in M5 in a Vauxhall Corsa.
Since registration opened last month, nearly three-quarters of the more than 40 entries already received have come from the wider Caribbean and Europe. (TT)
