THIRTY NEW COMPETITORS are among the 89 starters for today’s Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) Flow King Of The Hill, the final shakedown ahead of the Caribbean’s biggest annual motor sport international, Sol Rally Barbados 2017 next week.

But club chairman Mark Hamilton was quick to point out that the repeat visitors were equally important. Among them are Martin Stockdale, Kenny Hall, Andrew Costin-Hurley and Kevin Procter, who will this year bring to 58 the total number of times they have competed in Barbados.

“Outside of the pressures of competing year-round in a national or regional championship, that level of loyalty is simply unheard of. I thank everyone who helps our club make this event so special,” said Hamilton. “It also speaks to the professional running of the event, which would not be possible without the work of our hundreds of volunteers.”

And Sol Rally Barbados winner for the past two years, Jamaica’s Jeffrey Panton, in a Ford Focus WRC06, heads the running order of the second-largest field in the event’s ten-year history. The pressure will be on from the start, as all four runs will count towards the result for the first time. (TT)
