Teaching is not confined to the classroom.

This assertion was made by principal of the Reynold Weekes Primary School, Anderson Bishop, after students completed the livery of the Ravensden/JAD Performance Vauxhall Astra SRi of Dominic and Adrian Linton on the school’s Fours Roads, St Philip premises ahead of Flow King Of The Hill and Sol Rally Barbados.

“Children’s education is not only the core subjects such as mathematics, English and language arts, but exposure to other things that form part of their learning and development and, in this case, it also brought out the artistic nature already engrained in them at this early age,” the principal said.

And he was quick to point out that it would not be a one-off exercise, as co-driver Adrian Linton is a friend of the school and he expects to be kept up to date on the progress of the rallying father and son combination.

“On behalf of the students and teachers, we wish them well and we expect them to do well,” Bishop added.

Adrian had high praise for the students and the work they did on the car and said that the car was ready for the demands of the two major motorsport events.

Ready for event


“The car is done and we are ready for the event, although Dominic is short on seat time, but hopefully he would get into stride quickly and would be among the finishers,” Adrian said.

The Lintons are entered in Modified 2 (1601 to 2000cc), which includes pairs such as Jamal Brathwaite and Dario Hoyte in a  Honda Civic Type-R, John Carroll of England, and Kareem Gaskin in a Honda Civic Type-R; Norman and Kyle Catwell in a Volkswagen Golf GTI; and Paul Horton and Dwayne in a Citroen DS3 R3 MAX.
