Repeating their success of 12 months ago, Dorian Evans/Arfon Griffiths took their
second successive win on the Classic Tracks Targa Rally. The pair led from the fourth
test and finished with a victory margin of over a minute; they took eight fastest
times from the rally’s 19 farm track tests.
Mechanical problems caused delays for Ceryth Jones/Richard Williams on the opening
part of the event, but they recovered to take second place at the Finish. John Davies/Eurig
Davies, using a borrowed Satria, finished third. Cadog Davies/Michael Jones had been
as high as second place before a bent bottom arm forced them to cut to the Finish.
Jamie Jukes/Dale Bowen kept their 1400cc MG ZR well within the top ten, until problems
in Test 15 cost them two minutes and dropped them to 11th place.
A far higher proportion of the field than is usual for this event – 53 of the 75
starters - made it to the Finish.
