Mull class-winners take over Rally Barbados prize

Scotland’s Stewart Morrison has taken over the prize entry to Rally Barbados 2024 offered at the Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally in the United Kingdom last October after the initial winner of the draw, Mike Curry, found he could not make the trip.

Supported by Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc., the prize covers entry to the May 31 to June 2 event and the previous weekend’s King of the Hill, inclusive of return shipping for Morrison’s Ford Escort MkII from the United Kingdom to Barbados.

With Irish co-driver Johnny Baird, Morrison finished ninth overall – the second consecutive top-ten finish on Mull for the driver on his 15th visit – and won Class 4 which, with 32 entries, represented more than one quarter of the 116-strong starters list.

They led the class throughout, winning all 17 stages, beating their closest rivals Doug Weir and Daniel Forsyth, also in a MkII, by nearly seven minutes.

This year’s Rally Barbados is the 34th edition of the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) premier event which has its roots in the International All-Stage Rally of 1990. Since then, the event has grown in stature to become the Caribbean’s biggest annual motor sport International and a key component of the promotion of ‘Motorsport Island’. The Rally Show and King of the Hill, the final shakedown and seeding event, will be staged on May 25 and 26.
