Fortune favours the brave. Or maybe 13 is just a lucky number.
Either way, “The Sheriff” will take it.
Barbados’ most adored rally driver Roger “The Sheriff” Skeete and his co-driver Louis Venezia got some incredible luck last night, and it might just be enough for them to win the Sol Rally Barbados 2014.
Skeete, a 12-time winner of the event, was stuck in second place last night during the annual event’s second day, but then a crash by leader Paul Bird allowed him to take an unexpected lead into today’s final day.
Bird ran off the course just before action ended last night, destroying his left front wheel in the process.
Yesterday’s action saw more than 20 vehicles pulling out as a result of mechanical issues or crashes. (BA)
