With victory in yesterday’s (Sunday) Flow King of the Hill, Jamaica’s Jeff Panton has joined island legend Roger Skeete as a three-time winner of the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) annual Sol Rally Barbados shakedown. Adding back-to-back KotH wins to last year’s Sol RB hat-trick, Panton and co-driver Mike Fennell (Rubis/Sandals Barbados/KIG Ford Focus WRC06) have re-written the record books once again.

Returning after a two-year absence, England’s Paul Bird – he won KotH in 2012 & ’14 – pushed Panton hard, falling short by only six-tenths, on a day of close battles throughout the near-record field. Panton said: “I was a bit shaky in the beginning and had a spin early on. On the third and fourth runs we pushed really hard, because Bird was going very good and it feels like I have a target on my back. There’s a lot of pressure, but we will rise to the challenge and do our best; win, lose or draw, we enjoy the competition.” Read More »
