The Barbados Rally Club (BRC) is planning to make Sol Rally Barbados 2015 "a real classic", worthy of the 25th Anniversary of the first running of its International All-Stage Rally in 1990. Sol RB15 will run on Saturday and Sunday, May 30/31, with Scrutineering and Scotiabank King of the Hill the previous weekend, May 23/24.
 
Neil Barnard, PRO of the organising club, said: "As usual, we are focussed on the core values of our premier event - a seriously competitive rally, fought out in a relaxed, clubman-style atmosphere - but are determined to make next year especially memorable. As well as social events to mark the Anniversary, plans are in hand for Sol RB15 to be a real classic, worthy of this important milestone in the Club's history."
 
On-line entries opened here on October 1, with the closing date in mid-May 2015. In recent years, entry numbers have risen significantly, particularly from overseas crews, and organisers are urging early on-line entry.
 
Since overseas competitors first took part in 1990, the event has played host to more than 380 participants representing nearly 30 countries, including six from the wider Caribbean. The biggest competitor base remains the UK and Ireland, but the event has attracted competitors from as far afield as Australia, Canada, Japan, Kenya, South Africa and the United States, as well as mainland Europe.
 
A key player in the country's sports-tourism product, the event contributes nearly Bds $4 million to the island's economy each year, much of it in vital foreign exchange, and accounts for approaching 4,000 visitor nights at a traditionally quiet time in the tourism calendar.
