Mud Dog Rally

4×4 Motor­sport

This pop­u­lar event is per­fect for motor­sport enthu­si­asts, and fea­tures two main char­ac­ter­is­tics– Mud and 4x4s!

Hosted by the Bar­ba­dos Rally Club (BRC), Mud Dog Rally takes place annu­ally, and any­one with a 4×4 jeep or pick-​up can com­pete. This rally evolved from the BRC Safari Cham­pi­onship, an annual off-​road com­pe­ti­tion attract­ing more than 300 dif­fer­ent competitors.

At the BRC Safari Cham­pi­onship the empha­sis is placed on the abil­ity of a crew to inter­pret and fol­low a pre-​set route at slow speeds, tak­ing into account the ter­rain. Dri­vers are judged on their abil­i­ties to mas­ter these rugged ter­rains. These routes use lands belong­ing to estates and pri­vate indi­vid­u­als, from whom per­mis­sion is sought by the BRC prior to each event.

In 2008, 4×4 off-​road com­pe­ti­tions were re-​branded by The Bar­ba­dos Rally Club. These included the nav­i­ga­tional events as well as the new chal­lenge events which had become known as Mud Fests. Hence, the Mud Dogs were born. From 2008 until the present, Mud Dog 4×4 Motor­sport has been grow­ing at a rapid rate.

To date these Mud Fests are abuzz with spec­ta­tor­ship and activ­ity. Locals and vis­i­tors, young and old, males and females, adults and chil­dren, all are attracted to these lively events and the prodi­gious skill of the dri­vers. Com­peti­tors include novices, to the retired well knowns, and the cham­pi­onship gar­ners exten­sive media cov­er­age for the spon­sors and cars involved. This is certinly an event not to be missed for motor­sport and out­door enthu­si­asts.
