Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/ Dylan Jenk­ins held off a late charge from Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/gwawr Hughes to win the Ea­gle Road Rally on Satur­day night.

The lat­ter crew had been over two min­utes be­hind at the petrol halt, which was taken at two-thirds dis­tance. How­ever, they nar­rowed the gap to just six sec­onds at the Fin­ish, but just missed out on the win.

Kevin Davies/ Dale Bowen had been in sec­ond place at Petrol but re­tired in the sec­ond half. Dale Fur­niss/ Nick Blox­ham were also non-fin­ish­ers due to a bro­ken ex­haust on their Volk­swa­gen Golf.

It was a tough event with just 31 of the 72 starters mak­ing the fin­ish.

With the win­ners of the first four rounds of the HRCR Cham­pi­onship ab­sent, Howard War­ren/ Iain Tul­lie took a clear win on round five, the Hughes His­toric on Sun­day.

The event was run in mem­ory of clerk of the course Andy Gib­son, who had died in the week lead­ing up to the rally.
