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 »

Ninety crews – one shy of the record entry in 2012 – will contest Sunday’s (May 27) Flow King of the Hill, the final shakedown ahead of Sol Rally Barbados 2018 (June 1-3). Last year’s winner, Jamaica’s Jeff Panton, Britain’s Paul Bird and island legend Roger Skeete, who have won seven of the 10 previous editions of KotH between them, will go head-to-head in a battle for supremacy that truly captures the spirit of the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) premier event – a showdown between local, regional and international drivers.

The provisional running order published today (May 25) lists the 90 starters in 14 classifications, with Group B split to accommodate the rare presence of eligible four-wheel-drive cars. As before, the results of Flow KotH will be used to seed Sol RB18 – drivers who either don’t compete or fail to set a time will be seeded behind the last car in their class, unless safety considerations dictate otherwise – but the event takes on even greater significance for local drivers this year, as the opening round of the 2018 Flow Super-Sprint Series, a new stand-alone BRC Championship.
