In Celebration of Russell Capleton
The passing of Russell Capleton left a void in the rally community—and in our hearts. Now, thanks to his brother, Michael, Russell’s old Evo III is again ready to roll in anger down Jamaica’s back roads, and challenge the unyielding natural forces that measure a team’s ability to balance out right speed against mechanical endurance. The crew of Trackside Motorsports is deeply honoured to be given this opportunity, and we intend to finish Rally Jamaica in the streets of Kingston hard on the throttle, just the way Russell would have done it!

JOIN THE CELEBRATION!
November 30 – December 2, 2012
Most of the racing happens out near Bog Walk in lush cane fields and orange groves (see video). The final stage is run on the waterfront streets of Kingston, late Sunday afternoon. Every rally venue offers something unique: The water crossing on Wakefield stage always draws a big crowd; a short walk away, the Tru-Juice stage featuires an undulating orange grove that gives spectators several terrific vantage points, and includes a jump that gives the faster cars plenty of air. Aside from these favorites, there are also great spectating points at nearby stages a short drive away. Many of the stages are run in reverse, with little down time, so the action comes at you fast and furious. The final stage in downtown Kingston sees drivers finish off a set of gravel tires by grinding doughnuts on the asphalt. The sweet sound of high-revving motors, accompanied by the smell of tortured rubber, underscores a dazzling spectacle of beautiful machinery, mere
The rally is great fun—but the after-party is even better! Our team will stay in Silver Sands at the Windjammer villa the week following the rally (December 3–8). We’d be happy to put you in touch with the agent who provides our team a reduced rate for the following properties: Sol Mar (next door to Windjammer),

The advertised prices are very reasonable, but we encourage you to work with our team click here to email Russ and book through our agent for an even better price. It’s easy to do the math: Normally, a large portion of the cost associated with visiting Jamaica comes from eating out. (For our team, a staggering amount is also spent on Red Stripe and rum!) But when you stay in a gated community like Silver Sands and have a cook preparing your meals, you select the menu, feast on great local cuisine, and pay only for the groceries. Even after tipping the staff on departure, the cost is much less than eating in restaurants—and far more enjoyable. We can even assist with the menu to make sure that nothing essential to your Jamaican experience is missed: Johnny cakes, ackee and saltfish, festival, and key lime pie, just to name a few.
