Last year Paul Crosby and Andy Pullan won HERO’s Summer Trial, they repeated the
success this year, however on this occasion Pullan drove and Crosby navigated. For
the first half of the event the pair were in a tight battle for the lead with John
Dignan/Pauline Dignan, but the latter crew fell back on the final day and ended on
the same penalties as Christian von Sanden/Constantin Scheibler, winning the tie
breaker on the furthest clean principal.
Daniel Jones/Rhys Griffiths cleaned the Firefly Novice Rally to take a clear win
in their Astra. Brynmor Pierce/Mike Hughes, the navigator being a previous winner
of the event, took second. The top Semi-Expert crew Sion Lewis/Rhodri Jones, who
weren’t eligible for overall awards, also cleaned the route.
Also repeating a 2016 success, Richard Hemmingway/Sam Collis, won the 061 Rally.
The main talking point at the finish was the exclusion of Guy Robinson/Rob Bryn Jones
for a give way offence in a neutral section.
