Gary Roberts/Darren Ikin won a closely fought and highly demanding Border 100 Rally
on Saturday Night. The challenge of the route was demonstrated by the fact that even
the winners dropped time at eleven different controls.
The winners had a significant lead by the end of the opening 40 miles section. It
was a position that they were to retain throughout the event, although they were
chased all night by Lewis Morgan/Max Freeman, who took the runner up spot at the
Finish. These two crews were well clear of the rest of the field.
Iwan Jones/Neil Spiers emerged from a gaggle of crews who were vying for third place.
Having been as low as seventh, they matched the pace of the leading two crews over
the closing sections. Little more than 30 seconds covered third to seventh places
at the end.
Two fancied crews, Jamie Jukes/Dale Bowen and George Williams/Cadog Davies, failed
to make the end of the first section. The latter pair finishing their night in a
ditch. Irfon Richard/Michael Gilbey retired before Petrol.
BHRC front runner Osian Pryce paired up with multiple Border Rally winning navigator,
Steve Price, and finished sixth after a slow start in an unfamiliar car.
