Michael Gilbey maintained his 100% winning record for the year when he guided Andy
Davies to victory on the Rali Bro Caron; it was Gilbey’s third win of 2018. The initial
pace was set by Rhodri Evans/Max Freeman. In treacherously icy conditions they had
built up a lead of almost a minute by the petrol halt, however they crashed soon
after the restart, blocking the road and causing the section on which the incident
occurred to be cancelled.
This left Daniel Jones/Gerwyn Barry chasing Davies/Gilbey, but Jones hit a ditch
on the final section and had to cut route to make the Finish. The winners had also
hit a gate, damaging their lighting, but still came home with a 34 second victory
margin. The normally unbeatable Kevin Davies, partnered on this occasion by Alan
James, had to be content with the runner up spot.
Einion Williams/Rhodri Evans put in a notable performance to win the Expert Class
and take fifth overall. The last-minute pairing of Chris Hand/Aled Richards had been
level on time with Jones/Barry at Petrol, but retired in the second half with a dry
sump pump failure.
