Petcom Ltd., the state owned petroleum distributor, has again taken up the role as title sponsors for Rally Jamaica 2011. This is the twentieth anniversary of Rally Jamaica and the eleventh year of involvement for Petcom as lead sponsor.
This year, the organisers are targeting a field of fifty entries to the Caribbean island for the fastest and most testing gravel rally.
Special shipping rates are being arranged for competitors from the United States, Trinidad, Barbados and the United Kingdom.
Knutsford Court Hotel, (the new Rally Headquarters), has again joined up with Rally Jamaica and has committed to the same low rates as last year, with a reduction to the entry fee being applied by the organisers to overseas entrants, booked at the Knutsford Court Hotel.
Perennial sponsors, Catherine’s Peak Water, KFC, Tru Juice (Trade Winds Citrus), Xsomo International, Supreme Ventures (JusBet), The Jamaica Tourist Board, Jamaica Bauxite Mines, CVM TV, SeaFreight Jamaica Ltd., Seaboard Marine, Advance Performance Parts, Meggajamz-Pro Sounds, have all indicated their intention of joining this year’s festival of speed.
The organisers are looking at the prospect of a much changed and more compact route, with over 6000 acres of Trade Winds Citrus groves available in the Bog Walk, St. Catherine area. This promises to be much more competitor friendly and the Downtown Waterfront stage is again expected to finish the Gala event.
