The Trinidad & Tobago Rally Club launched their 2004 season with a bang, hosting the first event of what promises to be a highly competitive all stages championship on Saturday 24th January. The organizers of this event have capitalized on the problems facing the sugar industry in the country, making good use of old Caroni roads to stage the event.
The stage consisted of a fine gravel surface with occasional patches of coarser gravel and in some cases mud. On the forward run (SS1 to SS4) the stage started off with a long straight, culminating to a 90 left. Drivers then had to negotiate a small crest and a long sweeping left. Another long straight followed, with a sharp left and immediate uphill 90 right to the finish. Total stage distance – just short of 3.0 miles. Special Stages 5 to 8 followed this same course, but in the reverse direction.
