Victory on the Powys Lanes gaveKevin Davies/Dale Bowen two wins in successive weekends,
however unlike last week’s Cilwendeg win, this wasn’t a clear-cut triumph.
At the halfway point it appeared that the night would go the way of many previous
events with Davies/Bowen having built up a healthy lead of 27 seconds. However, in
the second half they just failed to make their time at a control timed to the minute,
in contrast two of their nearest rivals reached the control on schedule; the one
minute difference in penalty was critical. Reian Jones/Cadog Davies took the lead
at this point and appeared initially to have won the rally. Unfortunately they had
failed to get a code board counter signed, the fail for this offence dropped them
down the order.
Kevin ‘Penclaw’ Jones/Alan James also cleaned the vital section and finished the
rally just three seconds behind the winners. Andy Davies/Michael Gilbey took third,
which was sufficient to secure the Welsh Drivers’ title for Davies.
