Sol Rally Barbados, the best rally in the world?

The title says it all, and it’s taken from many drivers, journalists and fans’ impressions of this unique rally, set on the roads around the exotic island of Barbados. Unique combination of breathtaking scenery, enthusiastic crowds and packed entry list that gives this event a special, sweet taste of rallying at it’s best.

“It was the best 10 days of my life. It’s so much fun and completely unique to anywhere else in the world”, said Kris Meeke, double winner of Rally Barbados.

Each year rally gains more popularity among the fans, media and competitors alike and entry list always contains over 100 crews from all over the world. Among the many regulars are the crews from Europe, especially from the UK, and this year is no exception.
