Rally Trinidad 2014 – Saturday (Day 2)

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.

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.
