SOL Rally Barbados 2012: Highlights 9/06/2012 Automotive Art’s Lion Castle Stage

The awards ceremony of Sol RB12 will take place at The Boatyard 11/06/2012 about 3:30 pm - Since 2010, 40 first-time visitors have carried to 257 the number of overseas competitors hosted by the event; drivers and co-drivers from the wider Caribbean now number 58, from four territories, while the International list stands just one short of 200. Newcomers from Australia, Germany and South Africa also increased to 18 the number of countries outside the region represented in recent years.

Sol Rally Barbados is one of the strongest sporting brand names in the West Indies, particularly for visitors from Europe, and a key player in the island’s sports-tourism product. Each year, the event contributes comfortably in excess of BBD $2 million to Bridgetown’s economy, much of it in valuable foreign exchange, and the festival brings in around 2,500 visitors at a traditionally quiet time for the Caribbean isle of Barbados.
