As the region starts preparations for round three of the Seaboard Marine Caribbean Motor Racing Championship at South Dakota in Guyana on November 15/16, we can finally bring you our report of the Return to Wallerfield.

Ten out of 10! That’s what Neil Armstrong and Barry Ward achieved on the Bronte and Cedar Hill stages in the south of the island to lead the Trinidad & Tobago Rally Club’s (TTRC) 10th Anniversary Rally Trinidad 2014 by more than three-and-a-half minutes at the end of day two.

Once again our TriniTuner Media Crew was treated to the use of a Polaris off-road, roll caged, tractor-tyred dune buggy with racing seats and a cooler strapped to the back thanks to TOTAL Lubricants and Meguiar’s Car Care Products to ensure we got the best vantage points along the way!Full Story
Side B held an open-invitational obstacle course event where competitors were classed into two groups: Novice (i.e. stock vehicles) and Professional (i.e. Modified for heavy off-road). The planning and prep for this event took a few months, with several ideas and contributions from the group, finally solidifying into a grand event: A specially-built off-road course, hosted in a limestone quarry in Williamsville, Tabaquite.
