New for 2018
• the Ceremonial Start on Friday, June 2 (6.30pm) moves to the Vaucluse Raceway and, this year, it will lead straight in to the first timed stage . . . immediately! Cars will run in reverse order of seeding, side-by-side in pairs; each crew will be interviewed on the Ceremonial Start ramp to the south of the startline, before moving forward to tackle two laps of the RallySprint track, a distance of 5.80kms.

Sol Rally Barbados has attracted more than 40 overseas entries for the fourth straight year, maintaining its global reputation as a ‘must-do’ event for crews across the world. The provisional entry list of 93 crews was confirmed at today’s (Wednesday) Media Briefing at Mahogany Ridge, St James, along with a number of changes to the event’s format, which organisers believe will create a stern test of skill and endurance for the 29th running of the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) blue riband event on June 1 to 3.

There is a new location for the Ceremonial Start – crews will drive straight from the presentation ramp into the event’s first competitive stage at the Vaucluse Raceway in St Thomas – while there has been a significant refresh of the route.
