I remember a few years back Richard Rerrie came up to Canada to buy Tom McGeer's old rally car and entered the Black Bear Rally to test it out. He kicked everyone's butts and took home top spot.

he continues to do the same each year throughout sprints and rallies. We had some SS stages on tarmac tonight, if you check the link it should be updated. Subarus were kicking ass along with the Focuses.

I endorse this. I wish i had a bit more prolific writings on Rally Jamaica, enough to invite some of the top US names here to Jamaica to particpate in our 3 day event.

Ralliart help me out on this one.

Its really heating up folks check the link out for some pics and results.

Put it this way a full up WRC contract driver (Trivino from Mexico) who had a full test is having a hard time keeping pace. Not the only but one of many WRC qualified drivers that have under estimated the caribbeans drivers.

Lets call another name from Rally Jamaica 06... French ambulance driver Francois DeLacour!

Come on down guys we are waiting on Block and Pastrana!!!

Many people dont realize that the caribbean and more specifically Jamaica are HUGE on rally.. With several drivers from Jamaica winning the SCCA ProRally championship years ago, including iconic navigators like Mike Fennel Jr.

The Millens were frequent visitors to Jamaica and personal guests of the Summerbells. Peter Moodie Sr bought the mazda 323 Gtr from Millen after winning the SCCA pro series.

The first rally win for the Lancer Evo I on this side of the world was at the hands of Mr. Issa in Jamaica. Several cars had factory support from companies like Tein japan (this is in the early 90's folks before tein was 'jdm yo')

Many drivers works, ex-works and international champions have come to both Jamaica and Barbados and are many times astonished at the skills that present in the caribbean. The current crop of WRC class cars that are present in the caribbean have some very interesting former notable drivers... to the tune of Saintz, Tommi and so on.

Big note it is not a totally uncommon event to see a 'home made' Gp.A car beat a full WRC car on a stage or two or three.

Micey Manning, Sherif Skeet and Surfer Bourn not to mention Sir Harrold Morely would have a fair handshake to any WRC driver today in my opinion.

Jeff Panton (has beat GP.A cars at the 'network Q in a st185 years ago)
David Summerbell
Peter Moodie Jr
Gary Gregg
Rich Reerie
Doug Gore
Mathew Gore
Micey Manning
Rodger Skeet
Paul Bourn
Harrold Morely (and note he is almost 70)
Mark Maloney
Chris 'Teach' McPharlane

These are all guys just to name a few becuase there are more that can go toe to toe with a WRC drive and stand a 50/50 chance of winning all things being equal re: car standard and setup.


That is way more than i can say for many of the Rally America drivers... Schible (sp), R. Millen, Richard (canada) are some of the few but it seems they are scared to drive in the caribbean but want to take on the real toys.

As we W.I.'s say "Walk a yard before you walk abroad mi fren." Please remember these are all just jokes ok so please dont get offended.

Well he is a bit closer that being a friend, he is literally family but again as you see on WJ and even the old Jamauto days we have some pretty bitter fights too.

Teach is a very good driver with the ability to draw the most potential out of the car he has which is a big part of his problem. He does not have the access to the cars the drivers above him are able to enjoy.. that is why i put his name at the bottom.

Should not even be on the list (any list) in my opinion average at best. However i guess that he loves the sport and is trying to gather new interest so fo that i give him props however as a driver he can be compared to anyone who has driven a car period.

Well I havent been to a rally in Bim in about 10 years and must admit I don't keep up with the drivers anymore, but the names sound familiar. And yes I would love to see some top WRC or Rally America fellas go down one year.

Ralliart I know I going off topic but I must ask as I learn the world is smaller everyday.

You know any of them boys running the rx's in SCCA Club throughout South Florida ?

Hi Rexu and Ralliart,

Just saw this thread (really late I know) but thought that I could possibly share light on the opinion for you Rexu.

Now, as I understand it, you have little rating for me as a driver, specially when compared to the others on the list, which is OK as each and every one of us has an opinion which is our sole right to do. Maybe this may help inform you a bit better, in the future.

Unlike every one else on that list posted by Ralliart, I have not had big budgets for any car I've set up or any event I've entered, and as such have always been further behind the ball than others in terms of development on my car, but I've made up for this in talent. Here is a little statistic lesson that may help. using each driver for you:

David Summerbell have only once ever driving in the same class of vehicle, when I shared his Evolution with him at a Vernamfield sprint during the filming of my TV Series. This was the first time I was ever driving the car. RESULT: I was beating David, as seen on TV, until I pulled the ebrake to make the final major corner for the run and accidentally shut the fuel pumps off in the process.

Just to be fair, David is my #1 rated driver in the Caribbean, but up to the spin, he was being beaten by someone who JUST jumped in his car and drove it.

Peter Moodie Jr and I have raced in Dexterities against each other for a very long time and HE HAS NEVER BEATEN ME, not once. And he's always had equipment beter suited for those events, IMHO. Just pointing that out.

Gary Gregg and I have competed for years in the Dexterity Series and we are about even with out tit-4-tat battle, in terms of wins. He also brought the best prepared, and fastest, 2WD car at the time to a Sprint at Morelands Raceway while we were battling for the 2003 National Drivers championship. He and I entered the same class, and he shared the vehicle with Peter Moodie Snr in an effort to show me up. RESULT: I not only beat him thoroughly, but I set a new 2WD track record at the event in the much slower and heavier Pug. That's driver there, not car... And just in case you didn't know, I beat him to the Championship in 2003, was leading the Championship, ahead of him, in 2004 before a DNF on the Frome Rally dropped me from that spot, and in 2005, I was in a comfortable lead of the Championship up to the St. James Rally, and the wrote off my car there and efeectively my championship was over. Those 3 years, it was Gary or I who would have won, and I was leading EVERY TIME before bad luck in the latter 2. You draw your own conclusions there...

Richie Rerrie and I have never entered the same class in any event we've done, as far as my memory serves...

Doug Gore and I were entered in the 2003 RACE OF CHAMPIONS at Spot Valley, in which we drove his old Evo 3 and my Peugeot 206. It was the first time I EVER DROVE 4WD competitively and ended up 1.6 seconds behind him over the 2 laps in the Evo (that's 0.8 seconds slower than him per lap) on my first and only attempt. I was almost 10 seconds ahead of him on the second lap in the Peugeot and then spun, ran off the road, re-entered the track and went on to finish only 6 seconds adrift of the TOTAL AMALGAMATED TIMES for both cars. Doug has all the 4WD experience in the world, but could only manage 1.6 seconds to a rookie 4WD driver on his first ever run, and we were driving a car that he has a lot of experience in? You figure that one out, then look at the time difference in my car. I was way faster than him.

Mathew Gore and I have never driven in the same class of car, not calls entered. When he was driving the JA2 Mitsubishi Mirage with 150+hp and all the bells and whistles for wetup, I was driving a 72hp Hyundai Accent. When he returned and drove Mathew Donaldson's JR Racing prepared Mirage at Morelands, I won JA3 in my Station Wagon Peugeot which was seeing dirt for the first time and had an absolutely horrendous time seting the suspension up, as everything was too stiff. I still beat the other 7 or 8 persons in JA3 and had a time 4 or 6 seconds slower than his. We went on to win all the dirt events that year, except for the final one at Moreland's, when the engine was letting go.

Micey Manning
and I have never competed together in the same class.

Rodger Skeete and I have enever competed together in the same class.

Paul Bourne and I competed in the same Race of Champions in 2003, and he was beaten to the finish in the 4WD car we drove. He is the 4WD pro, and again, it was my first time driving such a vehicle competively. You draw your own conclusion there...

Harrold Morely and I drove in 2 events in the same class, both in Barbados. He was driving a bells-and-whistles no expense spared N12 Subaru and I was driving a Home built, running on used tyres that were too hard and a wrong 5th gear (1 to 4 were Close ratio and 5th was stock WRX) Version 5 and he beat me. Just putting the beaten into perspective. The first event was the King of the Hill which I only saw on my first hot run, and drove the car for the first time to the event. The car also had a bent rear arm, all bushings were busted and the shifter was nowhere near solid. He had a marginal beaten there. On Rally Barbados, I ran with a first time co-driver and a car that was so slow on the long straights as a result of the 5th, that it even slowed down with the pedal floored if the hill slightly inclined. He beat me handily there.

Mark Maloney and I have never driven together, period.

This post is just to clarify that when you make a statement that may lead others to believe it as true, you should be able to back it up with facts.

The fact here is that Ralliarts opinion stated that he believed that I was capable. He is absolutely correct.

I was just talking to a group yesterday and mentioned that only David Summerbell is willing to share a car with me at any event, as his Ego does not suffer easily if beat, as he likes competition and being pushed. I can name a few who would never take up an invitation to drive my car at the same event, or allow me to drive theirs. Before the end of 2003, maybe, but after, no way in hell. They are scared that I'd beat them.

Ask them, and if they give you some other excuse, challenge them to it. My car or theirs. Their response may surprise you if you can look past the bad mind and listen between the lines.

All will be revealed in December 2010...

Speak about bringing back from the dead

I guess you really are in the business of promoting and hey hats off to you! you are certainly doing your thing with that respect. I think that we will have to agree to disagree as you seem to think that you are in the upper class of drivers in Jamaica, i on the other hand don't think you are anywhere near that level of competitor or talent. As i said before you are good for the sport as you are trying to promote whenever possible keep it up.

Most of the drivers mentioned i have watched racing (example Dover) for a very long time, long before you even knew such places existed. Maybe you are as YOU said better or at least equal in talent however that is not my opinion.

Good luck in the Rally, and keep promoting
