Penti's Ford Fiesta R5 is here in T&T!

Always the leader in bringing current rally machinery to the Caribbean and adopted home, Trinidad and Tobago, John "Penti" Powell's brand new Fiesta R5 came home today. The car's first outing however was at Rally Jamaica last year in the hands of Simon Jean Joseph, who took the car to a 2nd place overall behind rally winner Jeffrey Panton.

It's widely known in local rally circles that many of Penti's former cars, or girlfriends as he calls them, have exchanged hands over the years, with some still being used today in our local championship. Current TTRC Champ James Betts, David Coelho, Stuart Johnson all drive and are very competitive in the his former cars.

The R5 represents another bold step to ensure that the Caribbean keeps on pace with the current machinery found on the WRC Championship Rounds that take place all over the world. The Fiesta is powered by a 1.6 Turbo Charged 4 cylinder direction injection engine, with a 30mm restrictor. It uses a 5 speed sequential hooked up to mechanical diffs, front and rear.

Being in Jamaica on the car's debut run, I can tell you that this will be a sight to see and hear as it blast thru the gravel and tarmac stages this season. Yes, there is a tarmac stage this year. I would have taken pics of the car coming out the container but sadly no one was small enough to fit into the car and thus I suffered myself to this job. The sacrifices one must make to deny you pictures.

The first stage for the 2016 TTRC takes place on the 28th Feb at the Jack and Jill Stage in Couva. There are four great spectator points and easy access to all. Pack your coolers,umbrellas and come take in the action.
