Championships: WAMC Route: 115 Miles Starters: 89.
An incident packed Rali Bro Caron was won by John Davies/Aled Richards, who emerged
from a tight tussle for the lead as many of their rivals hit problems.
Irfon Richards/Max Freeman held a 40 second lead at Petrol but soon after the restart
they lost over three minutes when they hit standing water and lost their electrics.
They continued to the Finish and would have been classified fourth but were excluded
for a give way offence.
Davies/Richards had been in second at the halfway point but had Dale Furniss/Nick
Bloxham just one second behind. The latter crew were delayed in the second half,
initially by a rear caliper problem and then by a broken gearbox mounting. They survived
and would have taken sixth but for a wrong approach at a PC, the resultant fail dropped
them further down the order.
These dramas meant that the battle for first place was between the winners and last
year’s victors, Steffan ‘DR’ Davies/Justin Davies. The latter crew reduced their
halfway deficit slightly but were still 30 seconds behind at the Finish. However
the result was enough to give Steffan ‘DR’ the lead in the Welsh Championship.
Defending Welsh Champions Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/Gwawr Hughes were delayed by a misfire
in the first half but finished fourth.
