Panton,Fennell win Sol Rally Barbados in Ford Focus

Ford winners: Jeff Panton and Mike Fennell in their Ford Focus WRC 06.

Jeff Panton and Mike Fennell (Jr) made it a hattrick of wins in this year’s Sol Rally Barbados.

They returned a total elapsed time 1 hr. 10 mins. 26.41 seconds in the Rubis/Sandals/KIG Ford Focus WRC 06.

Sales and Marketing Manager at local dealers McEnearneyQuality Inc. (MQI) Margaret Hoyte had high priase for their achievements.

“We have been the dealers for Ford for a number of years and even though we only have the Ranger in stock as present the commanding performance of the Focus in the hands of Panton and Fennell was impressive”, she noted.

Co-driver Mike Fennell (Jr) in an upbeat mood said that apart from the safety requirements for the sport the Focus was built ‘Ford tough’ and that in great measure was responsible for the car standing up under the circumstances and without any more damage.

“We had been going along pretty good until that third Toyo Tyres Padmore stage outside Bushy Park when all wrong for us and we could have been knocked out of the rally. We  had taken the corner wide and went into a wet and muddy patch and the back hung out and struck a wall and then we hit the front”, he said after the prizegiving at The BoatYard Seaside Restaurant in Bridgetown.

He said the rear wheel took most of the impact and they also suffered a flat tyre as a result but we were able to complete the rally the rally without any further incidents.

And the pair said they would be back next year.
