BARBADOS - rally racing - Rally Carnival
“Rally Carnival' is fabulous – after enjoying the RallySprint at Vaucluse International Raceway and the main Rally Barbados on the weekend of May 28th and 29th we will spread the word about this exhilarating event on our return home.” said Graeme Goodfellow, winner of a competition in leading UK motor sport magazine Autosport to win a 15-day trip to the 2005 Barbados Rally Carnival spoke of this event while chilling out in his poolside villa generously provided by Europa, part of Intimate Hotels.

Defending champion Paul Bourne and nine-time winner Roger Skeete head a total of 90 drivers to face the starter in the Rally Barbados which will start at Simpson Motors, Warrens, today at 9 a.m. and continues tomorrow.
Of the 90 starters, 54 are from Barbados and eight from the region, including Jamaica’s championship leader Greg Gregg and his compatriot and former champion driver Jeff Panton who will this year be partnered by Justin Morin.
Based on current form, Bourne, who will have regulator Louis Venezia on board for the 32-stage event in the Banks/Havoline/Pirelli Subaru Impreza WRC, is highly tipped to repeat his performance of last year.
However, he could expect to come up against tough opposition from Skeete and Dave Crawford in the Havoline/McEnearney/Michelin/Harris Paints Ford Escort Cosworth WRC, as well as Panton and Morin and the pair of Peter Moodie Jr and Mike Fennell in the NG Racing/DMS Distributors/Citrix Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V.

Extracts compliments of the Nation News-
The Barbados Rally Carnival provides a very special opportunity for Rally spectators/enthusiasts, combining the Caribbean climate, turquoise beaches and a Carnival, where you can get to the heart of the action and socialise with the Rally drivers.
Barbados has been Rallying for forty-five years, you'll find the cars and drivers to be very competitive, and the dense network of paved public roads are especially suitable to tarmac rallying and have character, as diverse as anywhere in the world. The new rallysprint track at Vaucluse Raceway has been hailed as world-class and adds new dimension to local rallyists' motorsport experience.
............ a rare chance for any Rally enthusiast

Rally Barbados, the region’s biggest rally, will see four previous winners competing against crack drivers and navigators from Europe and the Caribbean for the 36-stage event, which will be contested on May 29 and 30.
Jamaica’s Jeffrey Panton, who won the event in 1998, will have Justin Morin with him as co-driver in his Castrol Toyota Celica GT4.
Together they will compete against local champion Roger Skeete and Dave Crawford, driving their McEnearney/Texaco/Michelin Ford Escort WRC, who have nine wins.
1999 winner Trevor Manning and James Betts, in a Courts/Automotive Art/Shell/Kerridge/Simpson Motors Mitsubishi Evo VIII, are also a strong team, just like last year’s winning crew, Paul Bourne and Louis Venezia, who will compete in a Banks/Texaco/Pirelli Subaru Impreza WRC. Read more
Compliments of the Nation News
100 per cent record of Group wins in the five events staged to date has
propelled Edward Corbin to the top of the standings and he is the overall
leader of the 2004 Barbados Rally Club (BRC) Drivers’ Championship.
At the wheel of his Automotive Art/Corbins Garage/Klark-Odio Toyota Corolla, Corbin and co-driver Mark Perkins also lead the Modified 7 Group by a very healthy margin. In 2003, Corbin tied on points at year-end with Group 6 winner Sean Gill, but lost out on the overall title, as he runs in the higher engine capacity Group. < Read More >
