Rally action climaxes today
TODAY, thousands will seek whatever vantage point they can get to witness the final day of Sol Rally Barbados 2014.
Twenty-one cars were forced out of the starter’s list due to mechanical problems of various kinds and crashes. Eighty-two cars had started the event.
Competitors will dispose of special stage No. 14, laid out from Padmore Village to Bushy Park, both in St Philip, a five-and-a-half kilometre stage, before heading to the iconic Kendal Stage, popularly known as the Duck Pond.
Paul Bird, last weekend’s winner of the King Of The Hill event, and an odds-on favourite to win the Caribbean’s most prestigious rally again this year, crashed out of the event spectacularly last night.
This means all eyes will now be on local favourite Roger “The Sheriff” Skeete.
