Alleyne, O’Neal top in Safari
Navigational rallying veteran Leslie Alleyne claimed his tenth victory, his eighth as driver, in the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) oldest event when he won the Shelbury Construction 65th Anniversary June Safari last weekend.
A sixth win for Chris O’Neal brings him level with fellow navigator Wayne Clarke and joint second behind Alleyne in the event’s roll of honour.
After 24 hours of competition across four routes islandwide, Alleyne and O’Neal incurred 1131 penalties in their POD Store/Maxxis Suzuki Jimny.
Their margin of victory was nearly 1000 over David Armstrong and Andrew Croney (2126 penalties), who won a trophy from Nassco as highest-placed Toyota in their Hilux.
Stephen Mayers and David Reece (Hilux) were third with 2535 penalties. Luke Cozier and Ben Moore won Class B in a Toyota Land Cruiser, finishing fifth overall. It was an impressive result for BimmaCup driver Cozier’s first-ever Safari and Moore’s first as navigator. (PR/EZS)
