Record-equalling 22 female participants from seven countries
Four newcomers to rallying in the Caribbean are among the record-equalling 22 female participants in Sol Rally Barbados 2019, the 30th running of the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) premier event. While England’s Cheryl Spencer is this year’s only driver, the list of co-drivers includes first-time visitors Jane Nicol and Nikki Addison, who both won titles in last year’s 50th Anniversary Scottish Rally Championship (SRC).
“Pinch yourself – it’s Saturday and we’re rallying in Barbados!”
Sol Rally Barbados is on target for a record turn-out of female competitors when the 29th edition of the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) blue riband event is staged later this year. Former British Ladies Rally Champion Shelly Taunt and co-driver Julie Murphy will lead the International contingent, while Cheryl Spencer’s return for a 10th wedding anniversary celebration with co-driving husband Barry means there will be two female drivers on the entry list for only the second time in the event’s history.
