Last Saturday saw the final Rally for the year in Trinidad and Tobago. My heart is forever in my mouth as Rallying is fast and my son is the co driver/navigator on the two man team.
Driver and navigator as a team are this year's 'rookies' and have given the long timers a run for their money. Since starting a few months ago they have rallied with internationals in Barbados, Tobago and here in Trinidad. The first time they rallied, it was an international and they placed third in their category and seventh overall from 40 plus entrants.
The final saw them placing third in their category and fourth overall for the year. There is a slight dispute as the reigning local champion and showman should have been penalized as he broke a rule which normally carries disqualification but that seems to have been overlooked!
This team has resigned itself, unfair though it is, to the fact.
Next year, next year!
