WAMC & ANWCC Route: 97 Miles + 1 Test Starters: 90.
The Barcud Road Rally was won in dominant style by Kevin Davies/Andrew Edwards. The
rally opened with a test at Pontrhydfendigaid where Daniel Jones/Gerwyn Barry and
Andy Davies/Lee Taylor blitzed the field, leaving the eventually winners in third,
25 seconds off the lead. However, both of these leading crews retired soon afterwards;
Jones with engine maladies and Davies with a failed starter motor.
Davies/Edwards therefore arrived at Petrol with a 1m50s lead over George Williams/Nick
Bloxham. Unfortunately, the latter crew were to retire after mistaking a river for
a track. With the top crews cleaning the second half, their demise allowed the winners
to extend their lead to over two minutes.
Mike Roberts/Dafydd Sion Lloyd followed up their strong showing on the Eagle by taking
second, well clear of Stefan ‘DR’ Davies/Michael Gilbey in third. Welsh Championship
leaders Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/Dylan Jenkins lost time in a ditch and finished in seventh
