Panton facing Sol Rally challenges


Share post:

Despite winning Sol Rally Barbados four times in the last five years, Jamaica’s Jeff Panton is approaching this year’s 31st running of the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) premier event on Ocober 31 and November 1 in a less than confident mood.

In a year in which coronavirus has created unprecedented global upheaval, the continuing social distancing and travel restrictions under COVID-19 protocols mean planning for the event has been challenging.

As he confirmed the entry of his Rubis/Sandals/KIG Ford Fiesta WRC on Friday, Panton, who is one the region’s most successful driver outlined some of the challenges his team has been facing.

“As you can imagine, the ever-changing COVID protocols for high-risk countries such as Jamaica make it extremely difficult to plan in the usual way,” he noted. (EZS/PR)
