If you’ve got an eerie feeling that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up, you’re not alone. You share that feeling with thousands of local motorsport fans. What’s the reason for this, you ask? Responsibility lies squarely at the feet of the Motoring Club of Barbados Inc’s (MCBI) Speed Event to be held at Malvern on Sunday April 17th.  This event has explosive packages and titanic battle prospects throughout the field of entrants, and Sunday morning can’t come soon enough.

Roger “The Sheriff” Skeete will compete in his first event of the season. With his Subaru Impreza WRC S12 all refreshed and ready to go, Skeete will be looking to make it a three-way battle between himself, Roger Hill and Sean Gill. Gill showed considerable pace in his Suzuki SX4 WRC at the season opener at Ellesmere where he enjoyed an intense battle with Hill in his Toyota Corolla WRC.

Brett Clarke will also be making his 2011 debut in his recently acquired Citroen C2. “The car’s been painted and is just waiting for the stickers to be applied, which will be done tomorrow. After that, there’ll be one last spanner check, checking of all fluids and such and then it’s off to the event on Sunday. I’m feeling pretty good and looking forward to driving the car. Once the car’s reliable and I get seat time, this season should be pretty good for us.”

Josh Read will be behind the wheel of his Toyota Starlet, which adds more intensity to the battle for two-wheel drive supremacy. Owen and Sammy Cumberbatch will be out in full force with their BMWs, so too will Logan Watson. Sideways entertainment will be provided by Andrew Jones in his Ford Escort MkII and “The King of Swing” Stewart McChlery piloting a Ford Escort Mk I.

Sunday’s event promises to be action-packed and unforgettable. Red265 Rally Media will keep you up to date on the happenings. Spectators please heed the advice of Marshals and Safety Personnel. Best of luck to everyone participating on Sunday!
