US star for rally weekend
American rally driver Ken Block will take part in Sol Rally Barbados and Flow King Of The Hill this year.
Officials are excited over his entry in the company of regular co-driver Alex Gelsomino in the May 29 to 31 event.
The American extreme sports star said he would be taking part in the Mexico WRC from March 12 to 15 before coming here to take on the competition in Group M4 at the wheel of a 1990 Escort RS Cosworth as part of his Cossie World Tour.
Barbados Rally Club (BRC) chairman Mark Hamilton said it was an entry which would heighten the international focus on the island and it augurs well for the event. (TT)
