Compliments of the Barbados Advocate

It's official, Roger Mayers and Max Ferri were crowned the champions of Rally Barbados 2005, the biggest motor sport event in the Caribbean.

At the well attended awards presentation held at the Boatyard on Monday, Mayers and Ferri were declared the winners with a total elasped time of 58 minutes 46.99 seconds.

Mayers and Ferri in the Trivial Pursuit/McEnearney Quality Ford Focus WRC had to wait 12 months before they could finally claim victory after leading Day One of the 2004 Rally Barbados and unable to make it to Day Two despite a comfortable lead on his rivals.

Previously, Mayers finished second to Roger The Sheriff Skeete in 2002 by about a two-second margin and was ninth overall in 2000, while he was a group winner in 1999. King of the Carnival went to local driver Sean Gill for his excellent performance in the RallySprint and 13th overall finish in Rally Barbados in the Shell Helix/Courts/Automotive Art/Kerridge/Simpson Motors Suzuki Ignis JWRC.

Second place went to the Jamaican team of John Powell and Michael March in the Intercontinental Shipping/Trinidad Mooring and Launch Services/ Toyota Trinidad Toyota Corolla WRC. Powell and March were clocked at a total elapsed time of 59 minutes 39.73 seconds, 52.74 seconds behind Mayers and Ferri. According to Powell, The rally was great and I did a lot better than I expected.

I came to learn the machine and the stages better and I felt good after the third stage so I went from there.

I have never been up against stiffer competition... but by stage three Micey (Trevor Manning) had problems, (Roger) Skeete had problems and then (Paul) Bourne had problems, so I knew we would be right in the mix, he said.

However, out front and getting further away was Mayers and Ferri and at the end of Day One and second place Powell mentioned that at that time I knew I couldnt catch Roger [Mayers], he was way too fast.

Due to this, his strategy was consolidating where I was... I had some time on Gary (Gregg) and as long as I kept him behind me I was safe.

I will definitely be back for 2006 with the same car, which was super reliable.

Third place was awarded to Gary Gregg and Hugh Hutchinson from Jamaica in the KFC/BD Gregg Bros/KIG/NG Racing Ford Focus WRC witha time of 59 minutes 47.04 secs.

Winner of Super Modified 11 (S11), Barry Mayers and Adam Hart were also an impressive fourth overall in the Trivial Pursuit/Nassco Toyota Starlet with a time of one hour, one minute 12.76 secs.

Fifth overall and winners of Modified 8 (M8) were Roger The Ninja Hill and Graham Gittens in the Mobil 1/Nassco/ Motormac/Michelin Toyota Celica GT4. Hill and Gittens were clocked at one hour, one minute, 35.38 secs.

Another Jamaican crew was sixth and it was the team of Peter Moodie Jnr and Mike Fennell Jnr in the Moore1s Business Forms/Citrix/Teleform/ Jap Auto Supplies/MoTeC/ NGRacing/Century Wrecking/ Auto Maintenance Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI. They were clocked at one hour, one minute 46.02 seconds and were also second in M8.

Seventh was Doug Gore and Mark Nelson from Jamaica DMS Sales and Service/Ricks Café/Slam/Amsoil/ Value Buys Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII, one hour 0one minute 47.16secs.

After receiving a two minute penalty the pair of Trevor Manning and James Betts in the Shell Helix/Courts/Automotive Art/Kerridge/Simpson Motors/ Garbage Master Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII drove well to finish eighth overall, while Kevin Procter and Mike Gilby from England was ninth and Sean Dowding and Jason Cozier rounded off the top ten.7
