A large crowd turned out for Sunday’s eagerly anticipated event, which was the precursor to next weekend’s Sol Rally Barbados 2016 extravaganza. It ran from Hangman’s Hill through the Vaucluse Raceway (VRW) then north to Lion Castle.

M-Sport’s Elfyn Evans, who currently leads WRC 2 in the FIA World Rally Championship, was third, while 13-time winner of the Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) premier event Roger Skeete encountered some challenges with his vehicle along the way and had to settle for fifth spot behind Rob Swann.

Here is a look at the overall standings.
