Rally base at Bushy Park
“RALLY CENTRAL” for Sol Rally Barbados will be at Bushy Park.
The move from the former Banks Brewery building at Wildey, St Michael, is part of a major restructuring by the Barbados Rally Club (BRC) as preparations are being made for the future of the club and Sol Rally Barbados, whose chairman Mark Hamilton said finding a location large enough to house the number of overseas cars, along with spare parts, tyres and associated equipment was no easy task.
“In light of the impending sale of the former Banks Brewery building at Wildey, where Rally Barbados has been for the past four years, ‘Rally Central’ will now be located in the pits at Bushy Park Barbados, a secure facility and workshop that will host the majority of visiting crews,” Hamilton said.
He added that the Banks building had served the club well for the past four years and was spacious enough to comfortably accommodate the steady growth in the overseas entries over that period.
Apart from moving “Rally Central” to Bushy Park, the club will also be featuring a new spectator-focused rally show and a revised format for scrutineering.
As the BRC celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, Sol Rally Barbados will run from June 2 to 4, with Flow King Of The Hill, on which the seeding for Sol Rally Barbados is based, on May 28. (TT)
