Panton, Fennell Shakedown specialists


Share post:

WINNING ALL FIVE MORNING STAGES helped the pair of Jeff Panton and Mike Fennell Jr win the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) Shakedown Stages Rally last Sunday.

Saying that the plan was to get seat time, the Jamaican pair won the first run from Four Hills to Orange Hill in their Rubis/Total/Sandals Barbados Ford Focus WRC06.

They raced to lunch holding an 18-second lead over Trinidadians John “Penti” Powell and Jason Costello, who remained in contention, and went on to win the rally with a time of 22 minutes, 12.22 seconds.   

“We weren’t looking for a win, but it was good to get it as we head towards Sol Rally Barbados. Like most others, we ran on old tyres, which gave some really hairy moments, but we drove accordingly,” Panton said.
