Barbados Rally Gears Up for Another Year

| February 22, 2012

What better combination could you ask for than fast cars competing against the breath-taking background of tropical beauty and fantastic island nightlife? On June 9 and 10, fans, crews, and renowned drivers from around the world will gather at Bushy Park, St Philip, Barbados to participate in what Paul Bird, UK Rally Champion 2005, calls “the best motor sport rally in the world” –http://www.rallybarbados.bb/.

Sol Rally Barbados 2012, or Sol RB12, is organised by the Barbados Rally Club and is currently the Caribbean’s largest annual motor-sport event and a key tourist attraction. Because of incentive programs and tiered entry fees, drivers from around the world are encouraged even more so than usual to compete. For British drivers such as Martin Stockdale and Kenny Hall, returning to such an idyllic setting has become an annual ritual. This year, planners anticipate participation from more than 18 countries outside the Caribbean.

With international drivers in mind, Sol RB assures that every rally remains Barbadian in character but runs on typical race regulations that are well-known to most of the island’s visitors. The race takes place over two days across an intricate design of public roads criss-crossing the island. The race this year will be capped at 100 entries due to the logistics for both local and international crews. Registrations will be accepted until May 14.

European drivers and tourists are attracted to the Barbados for other reasons beyond the excitement of racing here. With a rich and diverse history drawn from British, African, and West-Indian roots, this friendly, English-speaking island invites visitors to share its fascinating culture and lifestyle. Beautiful beaches, unique shopping experiences, exquisite cuisine, and a vibrant night life contribute to a full and rewarding vacation here throughout the year. The motor rally adds another dimension of excitement and a special reason to come and enjoy all the island has to offer.

Barbados holidays will be made thrilling by visiting during the Sol Rally, and from London, you can be there in fewer than nine hours. Perhaps this is your year to take a break from the grind of the daily routine and schedule an exciting getaway to the Caribbean. Experience the Sol RB12 and combine your love of motor sports with the beauty of an island paradise.
