ALLEYNE AND O’NEAL WIN MUDDOGS SEPTEMBER SAFARI

Leslie Alleyne and Chris O'Neal won Sunday’s (September 20) MudDogs September Safari in the Simpson Motors/Shell Spirax/Shell Rimula/Maxxis Isuzu D-Max, easing ahead in the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) Chefette MudDogs Safari Championship. While recent weather patterns had created a good degree of mud, Sunday’s heavy rains fell mostly on the west of the island, while the MudDogs were on the east coast, so had little further effect.

WEATHER PATTERNS PROMISE CHALLENGING SAFARI

Sunday’s (September 20) MudDogs September Safari promises to be a truly challenging event for the crews contesting the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) Chefette MudDogs Safari & Safari Novice Championships, if the recent heavy rains return in the coming days, as is forecast. It is round four of five in the 2015 calendar, which draws to a close in November.
