A new name has been added to the list of champion drivers of Barbados.
It is Daryl Clarke, who wrested the coveted 2014 title at stake among drivers in the Motoring Club Barbados Inc. (MCBI), with 109 points.
And at the awards ceremony in the Chilli Peppers Restaurant of the Caribbean Development Bank last Saturday night, Clarke, who competed in the Roberts Manufacturing/P&N Hardware/Mom’s Pasta Products/Amir’s Chicken/MQI Honda Civic, also took the group honours at stake for M7 and had high praise for his sponsors, family, the mechanics and marshals for a job well done in a very complex and competitive year.
The experienced Roger “The Sheriff” Skeete, who competed in the Sol/LIME/Simpson Motors/ Michelin/Williams Trading Inc. Subaru Impreza WRC S12 and also grabbed the WRC1 group title, was second overall with 99 points on a better average, nosing out Mark “Ointment” Thompson, who won Production 4 and finished third overall with a similar number of points.
Former champion driver Jamal Brathwaite finished second in M7 but fourth overall with 94 points, ahead of Edward Corbin and Andrew Jones, who were fifth and sixth, respectively.
