TTRC 2015 Rally Season Preparations

With the 2015 TTRC season due to kick off on Sunday March 8th in Couva, teams have been hard at work on their respective cars.

Some teams are already ready to rumble while others were still racing against the clock to be prepped in time for the first event.

My coverage of WRC Germany 2014!

I had the opportunity to attend the 2014 leg of the WRC/ADAC FIA Rallye Deutschland this year. The rally started off with Sebastian Ogier in the lead followed by Jari Matti Latvala and Andreas Mikkelsen; which seemed to predict a simple 1,2,3 for the Volkswagon Motorsport Team.

TTRC High Speed Stages #4: Reform Cup

With another Disappointing Cancellation of the much anticipated THA Tobago Rally Festival, The TTRC held its High speed Stages #5 for the 2014 calendar. We are back at the Reform rally stage, a favorite for most of the local competitors due to its fast pace and sometimes tricky 90° corners.

TTRC Snake Bites Again

The Trinidad and Tobago rally club held its third event for the year 2014 at the newly re-introduced and apparently, very famous, Snake rally stage located in Preysal Village, Couva. The stage brought back to life for the International Rally Trinidad event which was held just before this one and here we are again.

Rally Trinidad 2014 – Sunday (Day 3)

Neil Armstrong and Barry Ward are carrying the 10th Anniversary Rally Trinidad trophy home to Barbados, just reward for the wholehearted team effort from everyone behind the Suzuki SX4 WRC project. After another perfect sequence of fastest times on the Snake and Jack and Jill stages on Sunday, they rounded off the weekend by winning the Mayor’s Cup 4wd trophy at the hastily but well-arranged SuperSpecial at Preysal.

Rally Trinidad 2014 – Saturday (Day 2)

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. All did not go entirely smoothly, however, as a damaged engine mount on the Suzuki SX4 WRC needed some attention during the day, with the service crew ready to replace it overnight.

Rally Trinidad 2014 – Friday (Day 1)

Expectant rally fans packed into the National Stadium last night as the Trinidad & Tobago Rally Club’s 10th Anniversary Rally Trinidad got under way . . . the spectator areas were full to overflowing, with many family groups in attendance, as were the Shell Helix VIP and STAG A Man’s Beer liming areas.

All the ingredients of top-flight rallying were on display – close competition, sideways superstars and even a daring demo by local hero John Powell, sidelined from the main competition through injury. To the surprise and delight of all, Powell (with regular co-driver Nick Telfer) drove his old Group A Shell Helix Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX on a spirited demonstration run peppered with donuts and four-wheel drifting; now owned by Reezan Mohammed, the car has not competed since 2012.

Rally Trinidad 2014 hours away

The friendly face and welcoming camaraderie of Caribbean motor sport has been much in evidence this week, never more so than on Wednesday, as competitors, support crews, friends and family gathered at MoSportt Bar & Grill in Caroni for Scrutineering and the Drivers Briefing for Rally Trinidad 2014.
Many still had much to do, particularly those from overseas, as they prepared to help the Trinidad & Tobago Rally Club (TTRC) celebrate the 10th Anniversary of its premier event. While the 24 special stages between tonight’s opening ceremony at the National Stadium and Sunday’s Grand Finale at Saith Park, Chaguanas, offer the motor sport challenge, even getting to the start line has presented issues for some crews!

All eyes on Rally Trinidad 2014

Motor sport fans across the Caribbean will turn their attention to Rally Trinidad 2014 this weekend, as the Trinidad & Tobago Rally Club’s (TTRC) premier event celebrates its 10th Anniversary, and kicks off regional and international competition for the new season. Since being re-launched in its current format in 2004, Rally Trinidad, with its fast and flowing gravel stages, has traditionally been the first of the region’s annual ‘Big Three’; Rally Barbados follows in late May/early June, the tarmac interloper in the trio, before gravel suspension is re-fitted for Rally Jamaica in December.
