Rally Trinidad 2015 Day 2 – Bronte & Reform

After Friday’s night’s short sharp shock treatment around the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain, the hardy crews who set off from the Service Park at Tarouba first thing Saturday to tackle the real business of Rally Trinidad 2015, have, without doubt, been reminded of just how tough motor sport can be.

After a successful scrutineering session at Mosportt Restaurant & Grill last Wednesday, fans began pouring into the Hasely Crawford Stadium as early as three o’clock in anticipation of the first two stages of Rally Trinidad 2015. Despite the start of SS1 and SS2 being more than three hours apart – keep track of the Stages Directory on rallytrinidad.com – there was plenty to keep the fans interested, the venue bristling with activity as teams put the final touches to their cars, sponsor decals, competition wheels and tyres.

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.

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)

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.
