BARBADOS - Barbados Auto Racing League (BARL).

One of the highlights of yesterday's action was the final Super Special at the Vaucluse Raceway in St Thomas, where Paul Bourne and Louis Venezia (at left) left Manning and Betts in the dust as they won their race-off.

BARL opens arms for meet

Date August 11, 2006 by Clifton Henry Compliments of the Nation News

THERE WILL BE no limit to the range of cars on show at next month's BARL Williams Industries Inc. International Race Meeting, being held under the aegis of the Barbados Auto Racing League (BARL).

The meet, slated for September 3, is open to members of the Motoring Club Inc. and the Barbados Rally Club.

That's the word from BARL's chairman Kurt Seabra.

"Once the person is a member or joins the league before September 3, that person is eligible to compete," he said at a recent Press conference.

He was responding to a question no doubt prompted by the number of four-wheel drive (4WD) cars expected to grace the Bushy Park circuit for the first time in the event.

Should the expected number of overseas entries arrive in time, it could well be the first time there will be a separate group for four-wheel drive cars at a BARL meet.

The four-wheel drives include Stuart Maloney, who will be racing his specially prepared Evolution VI, and Roger "His Hotness" Mayers, who will be returning from a year's hiatus, in his WRC Ford Focus. They could be joined by two or more other four-wheel drives from the region.

These four-wheel drives will no doubt create loads of excitement for the thousands of race fans expected to turn out.

One remembers the waves of excitement created when Paul "The Surfer" Bourne, in his Banks Subaru WRC, upset Stuart Williams, who had been deemed unbeatable in his Leeson Moe-prepared Toyota Starlet.

Another car expected to create just as much excitement for the fans on September 3 is the Nassco Ltd/Trivial Pursuit Toyota Starlet of Barry Mayers. Barry, the younger brother of Roger, is expected to be in the line up after being out of action for over

a year.

His Starlet certainly does not possess the power of the four-wheel drives, but his skill and fearlessness make him a very tough and ruthless competitor in any group or class.

Mayers even caught the eye of former world rally champion Didier Auriol. In answer to the question of who impressed him the most at the conclusion of the 2005 Barbados Rally Club's International All Stage Rally, Auriol declared: "It was the guy who drove the little Toyota, I don't remember his name, but he has great talent."

On that occasion Mayers left all the two-wheel drives and several of the "big juice" four-wheel drives "coughing" in his trail.
