After six years of silence, the race track at Vaucluse, St Thomas was back in full action yesterday.

And motor sport fans lapped up the engine noise, when the Barbados Auto Racing League (BARL) staged its “reunification event” at the rural venue.

A large fan base took up every vantage point to see their favourite drivers back in action.

One of the highlights of the event was a demonstration drive by American, Windel Holmes in a specially prepared Toyota Corolla.

He was joined by former BARL champion driver Kenrick Husbands, Danny Wiles and Charles Lynch in similar machines for the demonstration, driving two five-lap sessions, in which spectators were treated to the handling characteristics of the Corollas.

The day started with drivers completing the near one-mile circuit, prepared by project manager Danny Croney, in ten-second intervals.

The event was also attended by Minister of Sport Stephen Lashley.  (TT)
