Ashadi Rallysport are please to announce the return of Phil Boyle as co-driver for the final round of the MSA REIS Asphalt Championship. Phil will join driver Andy Hawkins in the Ashadi Golf to contest the event on 9th November, over the technical Otterburn Ranges in Northumberland.

Andy is currently in the lead of the B11 championship class, by a small margin, and is aiming to protect this in the last round. This is not an easy task as the leaders in the class are all aiming high on this event, where a points weighting of 1.25 is to be awarded - so all to play for.

Phil will be looking for a clean run through the stages, without the dramas of the Jim Clark rally; electrical issues and an engine miss-fire not allowing the pair push as hard as they would have wished. 

The team will have the regular mechanical back up from Seb Hawkins, Jemma Watson and on this occasion Phil's son, Chris Boyle.

Sol RB15-02: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 1, 2014 

Britain’s Andy Hawkins was first in line when entries for Sol Rally Barbados 2015 opened this morning (October 1) – at 5.00am UK time, midnight in Barbados, he hit ‘send’ to confirm his return for the 25th Anniversary running of Barbados Rally Club’s (BRC) premier event. 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.
His third visit to the Caribbean’s biggest annual motor sport International promises a nostalgic trip down memory lane, as he has recently tracked down and re-purchased the British Leyland Mini in which he first competed on the island in 2003. On that occasion, with co-driver Chris Prabucki, Hawkins earned a host of fans with his enthusiastic driving, which carried the Mini to 32nd overall and fifth in the Historic class.

  Having largely retired from rallying after RB03, Hawkins concentrated on his love of motorcycling, enjoying major adventures in Turkey, the Sahara Desert and Morocco, before returning for Sol RB13, this time in a Volkswagen Golf GTI MkIV, built to mark the 10th anniversary of his first visit. With fellow Englishman Del Johnson as co-driver, he finished 50th overall and fifth in Modified 7.
  Fresh from posting his on-line entry, Hawkins said: “Waiting for entries to open for Sol RB15 was far more exciting than queuing for a new iPhone 6! After leaving Barbados in 2013, I decided there is no way I would leave it another 10 years before heading back, so pinned on the idea of the 25th Anniversary event in 2015.”
  This season, Hawkins, an IT consultant from Newark in the British Midlands, has been contesting the REIS MSA Asphalt Rally Championship in the Golf. He leads Class B11 ahead of the final round, the Cheviot Keith Knox Stages, to be run on military land on the Otterburn Ranges in Northumberland on Sunday, November 9.
  Finding his former Mini was not as difficult as he might have expected: “Back in March, I was working on the Ashadi Rallysport web site and started wondering what happened to the Mini, as everyone in Barbados loved her back in ‘03! I found a copy of the receipt that I had given the new owner when I sold her in 2006, so I contacted him. He said ‘she is still here with me, and in rude health’.
  “He had done nothing with the car, as his plans had changed, and she had been dry-stored since leaving me, with MoT tests and services every so often. We struck a deal and she is now back in my hands, after being away for almost eight years, pretty much exactly as I sold her . . . still sporting the event numbers from the last rally I did in the UK, and still with the RB03 tax disc in the window.”
  Unlike two years ago, when the Golf was a ground-up new rally car build, life will be easier for Hawkins with the Mini: “It will not be a complete rebuild, but a lot still needs doing to bring the car up to current regulations, mostly simple things like seats, harnesses, extinguishers and so on. She needs some TLC to be up to my standard, but the one thing that will remain is the roof flag that everyone fell in love with in RB03.”
  Fans can track the team’s preparations on Facebook ( and the Ashadi Rally Sport web site ( Sponsors will be Plastics 4 Performance, JAZ Computer Services and NAMIK Ltd, with the co-driver to be confirmed.
  On-line entries on the official web site -– will remain open until mid-May 2015, although organisers are urging early on-line entry, as numbers have risen significantly in recent years.
  Neil Barnard, PRO of the organising club, said: "Planning is well under way, in fact the route is already pretty much confirmed. We’re keen to mark the 25th Anniversary with a classic event, worthy of this important milestone in the Club's history, but without losing sight of the core values of our premier event - a seriously competitive rally, fought out in a relaxed, clubman-style atmosphere.
  "I would encourage international crews to enter early, as the first 30 will again benefit from subsidies, especially those who have competed in previous years. It is fantastic that Sol Rally Barbados is on the ‘must-do’ list for so many overseas competitors, and a well-deserved tribute to those volunteer marshals and officials who help the Barbados Rally Club stage an event which measures up to world-class standards.”

Sol Rally Barbados and Scotiabank King of the Hill are organised by the Barbados Rally Club, which was founded in 1957; Sol RB15 marks the 25th Anniversary of the Club’s annual International All-Stage Rally and the eighth year of title sponsorship by the Sol Group, the Caribbean’s largest independent oil company.

Oh, no ! It's the wrong seat Gromit !
Regular Ashadi Rallysport driver, Andy Hawkins, will be sitting at the side without the steering wheel this weekend. With the Ashadi Mini not being ready in time for this year's Harold Palin Stages, he has secured a co-driver role in the impressive Triumph 2500 of fellow Eastwood club member Lee Sellars. This will be Lee's second outing in the car, the first being several weeks ago at the same venue. Andy is taking the Ashadi in-car kit and we should get some great footage from the car on the day. He won't be the only member of the Ashadi team heading to the event as we are supplying two service crew so expect to find Seb and Jem mulling around the pits. If you are heading to the Eastwood Motor Club event this weekend at Fulbeck Airfield, near Newark, be sure to get some shots of the car and email them through to us at

Old Forge Garage Mewla Rally 2014
The second trip of the year to the infamous Epynt training ranges in the Breacon Beacons. Andy was paired up with Peter Littlefield for the tough, technical, 14 stages. Whilst back in service Seb was being helped out by our new mechanic Jemma Sherlock Watson, with her bright pink tool box. With a large field of B11 championship contenders it was possible that Andy would suffer points wise, so a hard push from the first stage was needed. Peter did a great job of delivery clear and confident notes helping Andy to get the best out of the car, and himself. With some great runs over the ever changing stages, including some spectacular jumps the pair brought the Jaz Computer Services / Namik Ltd Golf home to a very respectable 2nd in championship class, ensuring Andy stays ahead; his championship class lead now six points. Click here to read more . . .
