Four runs over a demanding new course combining sweeping high-speed sections, crests and a steep, technical climb through tight uphill hairpins will decide which driver from a first-rate field of local, regional and international champions wins Sunday’s First Citizens King of the Hill.
More than 80 crews were listed in the running order published on Thursday for the final shakedown before next weekend’s Sol Rally Barbados 2023 (Sol RB23) (June 9-11), the 33rd edition of the Barbados Rally Club’s premier event.
In a return to the southeast of the island, the 4.2-kilometre stage for the 15th running of the King of the Hill (KotH) starts at Palmers, St John, at the bottom of Stewarts Hill.
It heads towards Codrington, taking a sharp left up the steep hill that leads towards Society Plantation, where a right turn carries it to the finish outside Colleton Plantation Yard in St John. (PR)
