Chris Wood­house and Rachel Inns took their first vic­tory, hav­ing their first run in a Darrian T90 at Down Amp­ney.

Roger Duck­worth/mark Broom­field’s Subaru Im­preza led the first seven stages, pulling out a 30-sec­ond lead over Wood­house.

Duck­worth crashed out on stage eight, which left Wood­house to take his maiden vic­tory by two min­utes from Peter Hedges/mar­cus Stick­land’s Mit­subishi Lancer E6.

Andy Cor­ner/ade Camp’s Peu­geot 205 and Wayne/ Wil­liam Lloyd’s Es­cort had both got ahead of Hedges early on, but Cor­ner broke a throt­tle ca­ble on stage eight and Lloyd re­tired a stage ear­lier.

Glyn Cartwright/adam Wilks’ Es­cort set­tled in third, only two sec­onds clear of Craig Teas­dale/dun­can Lil­wall’s Im­preza, while a strong fin­ish from Josh Male/ Aubrey Bage’s Honda CRX gave them fifth, with John and Thomas Wil­liams’ Ford Es­cort com­plet­ing the top six.
