Barbados Rally - First Report

Neil at Castle Combe in the same car ,"Targa" TR5
Sprint at Bushey Park went off without drama. All the local lads drove everywhere sideways which was spectacular to watch but proved not to be particularly quick.

Jimmy McRae and Francis Tuthill achieved best times of 1 minute 50 and 1 minute 51, whereas the winning local in a mega tuned silhouette starlet achieved 1 minute 48.

David and I achieved 2.04 and 2.05. But all of this is speculation as in typical Barbados fashion 3 days later we still haven't seen any official results.

We have carried out a recce for the rally next weekend but even that has been a little speculative as we so far haven't seen a road book.

We are definitely on Island time man!

Inertia Switch Kit - Fuel Pump Cut Off

Safety is Paramount - get one today
Revington TR's kit RTR8346K - Inertia switch kit, connectors and fitting instructions is a must for any car fitted with an electric fuel pump. In the unfortunate event that you are involved in an accident this kit will cut off the power supply to the fuel pump. It is a modern replacement for the original switch. 

As an aside when I used to drive more modern cars with this type of device fitted I also used it as an anti theft device. When leaving the car I would trip the switch with a sharp tap so that the car was immobilised. Reset the switch by pushing the button in before driving off and all was ready to go again, not its intended purpose but it worked for me.

Every car with an electric fuel pump should have RTR8346K fitted. Ensure you do have one and it is working. If you do need to order one please click on the link below
£31.76 exc vat, £38.11 inc vat. (as at 15/7/11)

Targa TR5 switches gear from Tasmania to 'Barbados Historic Carnival' stage rally

I built my powder blue TR5 specifically to compete in Australia's Targa Tasmania closed road stage rally. For all sorts of reasons the car never competed in this event but has found a second home in the Barbados Historic Carnival closed road stage rally.

The car will be driven by me and navigated by Sue Revington with support from my old friend Ian (Mac) McGillivray. Last year Bernard Northmore who shares a TR with me from time to time on road rallies suggested we took the TR to Barbados to take part in this event. Unfortunately last year wasn't convenient but the "deal" was so good that I made sure I was free to do it this year. Even if Bernard had wanted to navigate he wasn't going to get a look in as Sue decided that she was not going to let me go to Barbados without her and that she would be occupying the navigators seat.
