Sol Rally Barbados 2018 is the 29th running of the Barbados Rally Club's premier event, the Caribbean's biggest annual International motor sport occasion. The event is organised by the Barbados Rally Club, which celebrated its 60th Anniversary in 2017.
Side by side action on the ROC Track
Slower cars starting first
The course layout emphasizes car handling, driver skill, and maneuverability rather than performance.
For 2018, there is a new location for the Ceremonial Start. Crews will drive straight from the presentation ramp into the event’s first competitive stage at the Vaucluse Raceway in St Thomas. After being introduced to the media and spectators on crossing the start ramp, crews will immediately transit to the Special Stages at Bushy Park.
Live Entertainment throughout the night.
