Arwel ‘Sbidi’ Hughes-Jones secured the North Walian Welsh Championship Double by
following up his win on the Rali Meirion two weeks ago with victory on Saturday night’s
Rali Mon. On this occasion he was partnered by Dylan John Williams and the pair held
off a strong challenge from Iwan Pritchard/Max Freeman to win by 12 seconds.
The result could have been different but a for a loss of concentration by the latter
crew on a section through the maze of lanes near Beaumaris. On this test, just before
the Petrol halt, Pritchard/Freeman dropped 40 seconds to their rivals and, despite
an heroic charge through the second half, they were unable to make up the lost ground.
Dale Furniss/Debbie Furniss held second at the halfway point and were maintaining
that position when, on the last section, the coil pack on their Golf failed and they
were forced to cut to the Finish.
Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/Dylan Jenkins took third place and won the battle of the remaining
Golfs, beating Welsh Championship leaders Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/Gwawr Hughes by 25 seconds.
Rali Llyn winners Kevin Kerr/Huw Rhys Manion were expected to challenge for the win
but were an early retirement with gearbox problems on their Escort.
