BARL’s Track Day this Sunday
Minor tweaks and adjustments to suspension settings are occupying the attention of competitors and mechanics as they prepare for a special “track day’ organised by the Barbados Auto Racing League’s (BARL) at the Vaucluse Raceway on Sunday starting at 11 a.m.
Called the Reunification Awards and Ceremony and Track Day, it will be first event by BARL since June and is expected to bring together nearly all club drivers, as well as members of the club, Friends of Motor Sport, as well as members of the Barbados Rally Club (BRC).
The sponsors are LIME, Marks Auto Spares, BHL, Rayside Construction, Williams Equipment Inc, Macgyvers’ Construction, POC Trucking and Bob Cat Services, and Prostar Trucking.
“It is also a move to bring out racing fans who have being going to Bushy Park,” spokesman Nigel Austin said.
Groups 1 to 3 have so far attracted the bulk of entries, ahead of the close of entries on Sunday morning, but Tyrone Martindale, one of the drivers entered, said he was looking forward to the event, a sentiment echoed by Junior Benskin and former BARL champion driver Orville ‘Sluggie’ Blackman.
The briefing meeting will take place tomorrow at the Garfield Sobers Gymnasium starting at 7:30 p.m.
Danny Croney is the project manager for preparing Vaucluse, while Mark Thompson is the new champion driver. (TT)
