Record 98 crews seeking crown

A record 98 cars are listed on the running order published yesterday for Sunday’s First Citizens King of the Hill

The starters list has exceeded 90 only twice since 2008 – the previous record was 95 in 2019 – and this year drivers and co-drivers from 12 nations are set to contest the final shakedown before BCIC Rally Barbados 2024 from May 31-June 2, the 34th edition of the Barbados Rally Club’s premier event.

Sunday’s event returns to last year’s stage between Palmers in St Philip and Colleton in St John. From the start, which has been moved forward 200 yards from last year, the course heads towards Codrington, taking a sharp left up the steep hill that leads to Society Plantation Yard.

A sharp right turn then carries crews into the more flowing second half of the stage, which has been extended by around 300 yards to include the tricky hairpin after Colleton Plantation. There will be four timed runs, starting at 11 a.m., with the event expected to be finished by 5 p.m. (PR/EZS)
