New boy stars in Mud
First-timers made their mark at the Barbados Rally Club’s MudDogs Summer Mud Fest which was staged recently at Three Houses, St Philip, for the second time.
Joshua Plaza won the overall event and the big tyre category, while another first-timer, Melanie Western, won the drag strip and was second in the small tyre category.
No stranger to the MudDogs safaris, Plaza said competing on the Mud Fest was a bonus and he plans to continue.
He credited the work of his mechanic on the customized Suzuki Samurai and his skill as a driver for his success.
Commenting that the course was not as hard as he thought it would have been, Plaza said: “It was wet and fun getting the jeep dirty.”
