Hinds, Manning Safari winners
Willie Hinds and Wayne Manning defied overheating problems to drive away with top honours in last Sunday’s Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) Chefette MudDogs Safari.
Hinds said they developed engine problems and the Samurai had to work on three cylinders for a few kilometres. It was sheer determination that helped them to finish and get a great result, he added.
“It was one awesome rally and a complete team effort between Wayne and myself, making the correct calls at the appropriate time,” Hinds said.
“I did not believe that Andy (Croney) could have pulled off a one-route rally with such accuracy. The route was challenging with plenty tricks and numerous controls, with well-chosen average speeds to suit what he wanted us to do. Andy’s smart, so congrats to him on a well plotted course and, thanks to sponsor Chefette, the marshals and all involved for making it possible.” (TT)
