Over 90 driving teams on list
OVER 90 DRIVING TEAMS are on the provisional list for next month’s Sol Rally Barbados.
There are 91 teams listed on the provisional list and a record 73 international drivers or co-drivers, 26 new to the event.
It has also been revealed that the finish of Sol Rally Barbados returns to the Vaucluse Raceway in St Thomas for the first time since 2007, with a SuperSpecial on the RallySprint track.
Cars will run head-to-head and, although times will not be included in the results for Sol RB16, crews must take the start to be classified as overall finishers.
Although not entirely ‘new’, Sol RB16 will also include a stage run in two directions for the first time since 2012.
Automotive Art Canefield will run northbound three times – the 5.5-kilometre stage will left turn at the Dukes Crossroads, run down under the bridge, then briefly head north before running through Fortress Hill and back on towards Canefield.
For the two later stages, the second of which is expected to run in darkness for all cars, the shortened (4.8km) stage will head straight down the hill. (PR)
