RALLY JAMAICA 2013

Postby rcadiz » October 29th, 2013, 12:52 pm

People,

Rally Trinidad 2013 - Done
Rally Barbados 2013 - Done
TTRC National Championship 2013 - Done

Well there's one more epic gravel rally left for the year and it will be Rally Jamaica 2013. The last few years have seen this event struggle a bit with entries but they seem to be well on their way to a big event this year with a number of big name competitors.

WRC -
- Jeffery Panton - Ford Focus WRC
- Roger Skeete - Subaru S12
- John Powell - Ford Fiesta

Group A/N will see a huge turn out with Betts, Stuart, and Craig Sumair leaving from Trinidad. Also in the mix is the Ex-Powell Evo IX that Jamaican Gary Gregg will be driving. You would remember this is the car that John did the 2012 NACAM series in. Radj Pershad from Suriname will also be heading over in his newly built Subaru N10 which many of you saw at Rally Finale in Reform the other day.

A major hype this year for Jamaica is 8 cars coming for the final round of the NACAM Rally Championship. Of course this leg was originally intended for Trinidad but had to be moved. Nonetheless it's great to have NACAM in the Caribbean region and there are some big names. Trivino, Lombardo, Izquierdo, and Fessman. All these guys have competed at P-WRC level this year and it will be great to see our guys match up to them on neutral ground.

The Rally should have a total of about 30 competitors and we will see how the planning comes together in the next few weeks.

Rally Jamaica 2013 - November 29-Dec 1
All spectators welcome, it's a great weekend.

So a few questions that will be answered that weekend
- Will Powell's second date with the Fiesta give him enough to de-throne a flying Panton
- Can the 1600cc Fiesta handle the 2000cc Focus and Suby
- How quick will Betts be? He's the most experienced non-Jamaican at the event (15x entrant)
- Can Sobby and Craig hold onto the NACAM boys?
- Will Dumplin take enough pictures?

Stay tuned for updates

RSP – RJ2013-03: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 28, 2013

NACAM Rally Championship leaders Ricardo Trivino/Alex Haro (Spain) head the list of
confirmed championship contenders slated to enter Rally Jamaica 2013, to be held from
November 29 to December 1.

Driving a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, the team is entered in NRC Class 3 and boasts two
recent wins in the Production World Rally Championship (PWRC) in Australia and France.
Trivino last entered Rally Jamaica in 2008 at the wheel of a Peugeot 206 World Rally Car, co- driven by Checo Salom. Trivino currently leads the 2013 NACAM championship with 77 points
after 4 of the 6 rounds of the series, with 2 rounds to go.

They will be joined by Venezuelans Alejandro Lombardo and Miguel Alvarado in a Mitsubishi
Evolution IX, who were recent participations in P-WRC rounds of Australia and France,
getting second place in this last round.

Mexicans Carlos Izquierdo and Guillermo Izquierdo will be piloting another Mitsubishi Lancer
Evolution IX, and were 3rd place finishers in the 2012 NACAM Rally Championship.

Carlos Garcia Fessman (Venezuela) will drive a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, and has
entered the 2013 P-WRC series in México, Italy, Australia, Germany and France.

In Class 8, Andrés Molina (Costa Rica) / Eduardo Corrales are set to compete in a KIA
Ceratto, and are the 2012 Costa Rican sub-champions.

Joining them also will be Robert Gelvez (Venezuela) in Class 8 driving a Mitsubishi Evolution
IX and Rookie Columbian crew Nikolas Bedoya/Ricardo Abello in a Subaru Impreza. Rally Jamaica is a three day, loose surface rally being organized by Rallysport Promotions Limited on behalf of the Jamaica Millennium Motoring Club and consists of approximately 23 special stages. The event rolls off on Friday evening November 29 with a ceremonial start in the heart of the business district of the island’s capital, Kingston. Saturday November 30, the stages are run on the marl roads of the abandoned bauxite mines in the Lydford area of St. Ann parish to the north of the island, while Sunday’s stages (December 1) visit the verdant orange groves nestled in the Bog Walk area of St. Catherine.

The event is sponsored by Knutsford Court Hotel, Tru Juice, Xsomo, Seaboard Shipping,
Seafreight Shipping, LHL Auto & Collision Repairs, Bank of Nova Scotia (Jamaica), Triple T’s
Eatery, Peak Bottling Co Ltd and Advanced Performance Parts.

From what i know of the NACAM guys, they probably won't be as fast as Betts and possibly Sobby. But they are SUPER consistent. They will only be allowed 2 passes through the stages for pacenotes while the non-NACAM guys will be allowed multiple passes on the stages during the recce.

As a result the NACAM drivers are usually cautious and very calculated, which usually makes them consistent and not willing to take big risks. Our experience in 2012 showed proved that John was faster but with so much stress before each event with the logistics he was never able to settle and pull out a win. Trivino will be the man to beat from NACAM, but the rest of the guys have all had very good experience with P-WRC and lots of seat time to go with it.

Game on
