CLASS ROUND-UP

Motor Sport News - - Rally Reports -

With Class A pace­set­ter and Vaux­hall Corsa driver Joe Cun­ning­ham elect­ing to use the Brands round as his dropped score, it was left for the Nova of Christo­pher and An­thony New­ton to take up the classlead­ing hon­ours. They led home the un­der­pow­ered Mi­cra of Matt and Suze En­dean by over three min­utes.

Class B should have been dom­i­nated by the well-liked duo of Paul Sheard and Steve Hall­mark, but the Miche­lin Cup win­ners from the pre­vi­ous round had a sen­sor fail, which cru­elly ruled them out af­ter two dif­fi­cult events at Croft and Rockingham. In­stead, Ben and Mike Daw­son took up the man­tle in their Ford Es­cort, ahead of the Honda Civic of Tony Michael and Paul Bar­rett.

Class C went to over­all win­ner Chris West, while Class D went to Field. As events and the cham­pi­onship can run dif­fer­ent class names, the event went with Class E (or rather D2 in the MN Cir­cuit Cham­pi­onship). That was headed by the Perez father-and­son team.
