Local drivers chasing points in the Barbados Rally Club (BRC) 2019 Driver’s and Class Championships are heading in to the most important two weekends of the year. As Flow King of the Hill (May 26) and Sol Rally Barbados (May 31 - June 2) draw ever nearer, on-line ‘countdowns’ are fraying the nerves of mechanics across the island, while drivers are gearing themselves up to face with the largest local entry in recent years.
Sol Rally Barbados ‘shakedown’ moves to Stewarts Hill
In the first announcement about its plans for next year’s 30th running of its premier event, the Barbados Rally Club (BRC) has confirmed that Flow King of the Hill will move to Stewarts Hill in St Philip. Run on the Sunday before the main event since 2008, KotH plays a key role in seeding the running order for Sol Rally Barbados, and the change of venue has already found favour with Britain’s Rob Swann, who describes it as “a great spectator stage, which has a bit of everything.”
