Mark Lennox made it two wins within seven days after he followed up his Holrus success
with a win on the Radnor Pacemaker Rally on Saturday night. His navigator, Michael
Gilbey, fitted the event in the midst of the two-day BRC Nicky Grist Stages.
Unusually for a Welsh event, the rally was run under a navigational permit and feature
regularity sections throughout. Many crews struggled with the concept. Mark ‘GT’
Roberts/Cadog Davies could have won but were unfortunate, along with two other front
runners, to pick up a minute penalty for stopping within sight of a timing point.
These two crews were well ahead of the rest of the field, who were led by the Puma
of Simon Summers/Dilwyn John in third place.
Two leading retirements were Iwan Jones/Darren Ikin, who had their Escort’s rear
brakes stick on, meanwhile Richard Hunter/Gary Evans suffered fuel pump failure on
their similar car.
