It’s Rally Barbados Time Again

We at Stoute’s Car Rentals have been very fortunate to be involved in this keystone sporting event on the local calendar for just about all its years. Rally Barbados signals the high-point on the local motorsport calendar and falls neatly into the middle of the calendar year. The first weekend of June sees crews from all of the world competing over the course of 2 ½ days for supremacy and bragging rights in the international rallying world. We have supplied cars for supporters and for crew for the event for as far back as anyone can remember.

One of the modern favourites for the crews is the Suzuki APV. This capable 7-seater offers versatility at a fair price for moving both the teams and their gear. Configured with all seats in, fans and supporters can safely carry their whole group from point to point along the route of the rally. With the third row stowed, this capable small van works well as a team vehicle for mechanics and some spares. It’s a favourite with the teams during the weekend. It’s the perfect rental car for your competing team or fan van!

Also, popular during the rally week from the King of the Hill event on the last Sunday in May to the end of the rally, is the small and mid-sized SUV category of vehicles. Our Ford Ecosports, Suzuki Vitaras, and Suzuki Jimny’s are the perfect vehicle for those fans and family who want to follow the rally, while still having access to their vehicle. With the ability to get onto the adjacent pastures and cart roads to the rally route, the practicality of these hired vehicles really shines.

Remembering you’re in Barbados and there is much more to do than just follow the rally cars on the two weekends of action, our range of small and mid-sized cars offers up vehicles like the Chevy Spark, Kia Picanto, Toyota Yaris, Kia Cerato, and Toyota Corolla. These cars are a mainstay on the island, and for good reason. To get a family of 4-5 persons around in comfort and safety with a car perfectly suited to the road conditions, you need look no further for your rental car of choice. Especially handy for the King of the Hill weekend, since each day’s events are cleverly condensed into single locations, and so your hired car can become your oasis.

Of course, following rallies or just exploring the island can be mind-bending for the less adventurous, and for you, we offer GPS units and complimentary maps to make your journey as short as you need it to be. So, pack your bags and order your rental car to have the rallying vacation of a lifetime! Rally Barbados is not to be missed and we are proud to be associated with the event yet again this year, especially as the Barbados Rally Club celebrates its 60th Anniversary. Drive safely and enjoy responsibly!
