Panton wins Sol rally
04 Jun

The engines are off and the dust has settled and for the fourth year in a row Jamaica's Jeffrey Panton and co-driver Mike Fennell are Sol Rally Barbados champions.

Panton behind the wheel of his Ford Focus WRC06 completed the 22 stage island wide rally in one hour, 3 mins, 36.22 secs.

In second was the Welch pair of Rob Swann and Darron Garrod in a time of one hour, 3mins, 38.63secs.

Third went to the man who had previously tasted Rally Barbados Victor Paul Bird and his navigator Jack Morton whose time was one hour, 3mins, 39.04secs.

Rounding out the top five were the pairs of Rhett Watson and Bradley Weekes - who was the top local finishers.

And another Welch pair of Graham Coffey and Patrick Walsh finished the top five.

This is what Panton had to say after the victory as he spoke on the Sol Rally Barbados live stream.
