With his three ca­reer round wins in poor weather con­di­tions, Price, a renowned for­mer MN Rally Cham­pi­onship con­tender said: “Ev­ery­body knows I love the wet, but I would rather it had been equal for all.”

Bri­tish Hill­climb cham­pion Alex Sum­mers made one of his rare 2016 ap­pear­ances driv­ing his par­ents’ one-litre DJ Fire­hawk. Such was the fe­roc­ity of his Q1 at­tack that he took more than a sec­ond out of the record. The gear­box broke as he fin­ished that run so he was un­able to take his well-de­served place in the open­ing en­counter.

Will Hall con­tin­ued his re­cent im­prove­ment but the car did not want to get off the line cleanly in the wet. It stalled off the start and, with all four wheels hav­ing crossed the line, he was out. De­spite a spir­ited ap­peal from his crew, that was al­ways go­ing to fail.
