Big points on offer for rivals in Sol Rally

The first two weekends of June are crucial for competitors seeking to win the coveted Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) champion driver trophy.

The points to be scored at First Citizens King of the Hill on June 4 and Sol Rally Barbados (June 9-11) represent just over one-third of the total for the year, so nothing can be left to chance in the two marquee events in the Club’s seven-round championship.

This applies to not just those in the WRC or FIA R5 classes fighting for outright victory. Only two drivers from the four-wheel-drive classes have claimed the champion driver title in the past decade. Stuart Maloney triumphed in 2021 and Jamaica’s Jeff Panton, who won in 2017 and 2018 is only competitor to win the Club’s premier event as a driver.

There are 14 classes in Sol Rally Barbados and the points earned are reduced if there are fewer than three starters. (PR/EZS)
