A night long battle for the lead was resolved with Carwyn Evans/Dylan John Williams
winning the Merfyn Hughes Memorial Rali Llyn. With the fastest crews dropping time
at ten controls through the maze of lanes on the Llyn Peninsula, the winners and
second placed Kevin Kerr/Huw Rhys Manion were separated by just four seconds at the
Finish; the lead having changed on a number of occasions. Steven John Williams/Paul
Roberts completed the Escort top three but were over a minute behind the leading
pair of cars.
Fourth place went to Andy Davies/Michael Gilbey, giving them maximum Welsh Championship
points for the second event running, and the navigator a perfect 300-point score
after three rounds of the series. Their title campaign was helped by the retirement,
due to sheared wheel nuts, of Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/Dylan Jenkins.
Kevin Davies/Owain Davies would have won the rally but were excluded after it was
found that they had added a signature to their card for a secret check where they
had failed to stop.
