Jamaicans win Shakedown
JAMAICA’S Jeff Panton and Mike Fennell are celebrating after winning Sunday’s Automotive Art Shakedown Stages.
Competing in their Rubis/Sandals Barbados/KIG Ford Focus WRC06, Panton and Fennell triumphed in the ten-stage, 37-kilometre event despite being handed a ten-second penalty for a late restart after lunch.
The event was the opening round of the Barbados Rally Club’s Drivers’ And Class Championships, and also the final test before the Flow King Of The Hill and Sol Rally Barbados.
Last year’s winner, Britain’s Rob Swann, finished second in his Subaru Impreza WRC S12B a little under five seconds adrift, with Roger Skeete and Louis Venezia, in their Impreza WRC S12B, placing third. (TT)
