Britain’s Nigel Worswick will celebrate his 10th consecutive visit to participate in Sol Rally Barbados this year with a fun-filled head-to-head battle with old friend Philip Burton, who is competing in the island for the first time, after visiting as service crew in the past.

Britain’s Rob Swann is in upbeat mood about Sol Rally Barbados 2020 after winning last Sunday’s (December 29) Mini Tempest Rushmoor Stages in the South of England on his second outing to assess a Ford Fiesta WRC. Runner-up in the Caribbean’s biggest motor sport International three times, he lost out in 2017 and ‘18 to Jamaica’s Jeffrey Panton, who is reviewing his own options ahead of Sol RB20 with an entry on a single-venue event in the UK next month in a Fiesta R5.

Neither finished Sol RB19: the engine of Swann’s Subaru Impreza WRC S12B failed on Friday evening, then Panton retired after a dramatic Sunday morning accident which destroyed his Ford Focus WRC06. While both visitors have driven their way in to the hearts of island fans, the resultant victory for local rising star Dane Skeete (Impreza S12B) was warmly celebrated following Panton’s run of four wins since Sol RB15.
