He came, he saw and he conquered.

American driver Ken Block and co-driver Alex Gelsomino defied the odds and drove away with the Sol Rally Barbados 2020 title.

On a weekend of fluctuating fortunes for the top-class pairs, Block and Gelsomino, driving a well prepared Ford Performance/Monster Energy/Hoonigan Racing Ford Fiesta Rally2, returned a time of 56 minutes, 03.19 seconds to take the title in a day in which the overall lead changed several times.
