The fourth round of the HRCR Clubman Championship, the Silver Jubilee Leukaemia Rally,
was won by the winners of the opening round, Howard Warren/Iain Tullie. Only fifth
after the four tests at Chepstow Race Course that opened proceedings, the pair took
the lead on the first short regularity, a lead they weren’t to lose. They were 52
seconds to the good at the lunch halt and doubled this by the finish.
Darell Staniforth/Les McGuffog held second at the halfway halt, but a troubled third
regularity meant that they fell to fifth. Being delayed by traffic at one timing
point cost John Abel/Niall Frost almost a minute, but they recovered to take the
runner up spot when crews returned to Chepstow at the end.
The Targa Rally that ran alongside the main event attracted 11 entries and was won
in convincing style by Clive Baty/Cath Woodman; they would have been second to Warren/Tullie
if the two events had been combined.
