Barbados’ most decorated driver, Roger “The Sheriff” Skeete, emerged with just soft tissue damage after rolling his Sol/Automotive Art Peugeot 306 Maxi four times last Sunday during the first run of the double-header Hammertime 20 speed event from Henley to Cherry Grove.

“We are still reviewing the accident, but it could have been a tyre blowout on the right rear of the car, which could have caused the problem,” he said.

Medical personnel, under the direction of Dr Brian Charles, examined the former champion driver on the scene and he took no further part in the event, organised by the Motoring Club Barbados Incorporated and the Barbados Rally Club.

Skeete’s son, Dane, was also sidelined after engineers could not get a fuel leak on the Subaru Impreza WRC S12B repaired on time. (TT)
