The battle for Two-Wheel-Drive honours in Sol Rally Barbados 2018 looks set to be a thriller for local fans, as at least six potential winners battle second-for-second with one another, while snapping away at the heels of the 4wd cars. The Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) premier event, Sol RB18 will run from Friday to Sunday, June 1-3, with The Rally Show and Flow King of the Hill (KotH) the previous weekend, May 26/27.

Over the past decade, in which the 2wd battle has often eclipsed the fight for overall honours, seven drivers have won: Neil Armstrong (2011-‘12), Ian Warren (2010 & ’13) and Rhett Watson (2014-‘15) twice, with single wins for Sean Gill (2008), Barry (2017) and Roger (2016) Mayers, plus Jonathan Still (2009), whose 12th overall marks the only time in the event’s 28-year history that the top 10 included no 2wd cars. Roger’s fourth place matched his younger sibling’s 2005 result as the highest-overall finish since the last outright 2wd victory (Roger Skeete, Peugeot 306 S16) in 1997. Read More »
