Double Sol Rally Barbados winner Paul Bird and Rob Swann, who finished second in Sol RB17, will both compete in the final round of the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) Winter Rally at the end of next month. They will join regional regulars, including Jamaica’s Jeff Panton, who currently leads the BRC Champion Driver title chase, in what promises to be an explosive climax to the domestic season.
Jamaica’s Jeff Panton slid to victory – twice – in the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) double-header Winter Sprint on Sunday (October 8) to maintain his 100 per cent record in the 2017 BRC Driver’s and Class Championships, with one round to go. As drivers dealt with slippery stage conditions, a monumental battle for two-wheel-drive honours was the highlight of a slick event, which drew praise from competitors and officials alike.
Jamaica’s Jeff Panton, who currently leads the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) Champion Driver title chase, tops the 31-car entry for Sunday’s (October 8) Winter Sprint in the northern parish of St Lucy. With no dropped-score rule in the 2017 BRC Driver’s and Class Championships, every point counts, as competitors prepare for a double-header, which could prove a turning point for some class battles.
