Kevin Willis/Richard Brooks proved to be the masters of Salisbury Plain as they ran
out emphatic winners of the resurrected Devil’s Tour.
The event was split into three parts; the first was a series of eight tests during
the afternoon, then, after a supper halt, crews tackled a short Jogularity section
before embarking on what proved to be a decisive 60 mile road rally section over
the byways of the Plain.
Mark Robinson/Steve Durbin made the most of their Impreza’s four wheel drive in the
slippery conditions to place themselves at the head of the field by being the only
crew to beat the bogey on the opening test. They arrived at the evening halt nine
seconds ahead of the MG ZR of Paul Sharp/Kevin Ablitt. At this point Willis/Brooks
were in 23rd place having collected three cone faults along the way.
Robinson/Durbin kept the lead after the Jogularity, extending it to 14 seconds. Willis/Brooks
had moved up to 14th place as the action moved to the Plain. They then sailed through
the four sections picking up just three minutes of penalties to take the win. Dave
Clifford/Mark Dunkerley put their BMW into second place and a win in the Semi-Expert
class. Behind them most crews struggled on the notorious tracks.
