Hav­ing main­tained a con­sis­tently high pace through­out the night, Dale Fur­niss/ Nick Blox­ham achieved their sec­ond Welsh Cham­pi­onship win of the year on the PK Me­mo­rial Rally. In a nicely timed event, the win­ners dropped time at four con­trols but just reached their tar­get at a num­ber of oth­ers.

Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/gwawr Hughes were never far be­hind and took sec­ond place, a re­sult that sig­ni­fies these two crews will be fight­ing for the cham­pi­onship at the end of the sea­son. A VW Golf 1-2-3 was rounded off by Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/ Dy­lan Jenk­ins.

Car­wyn Evans/dy­lan John Wil­liams might have chal­lenged for the win but lost three min­utes chang­ing a punc­ture in the first half. They were the quick­est crew over the sec­ond half and re­cov­ered to ninth at the Fin­ish. Punc­tures also led to the re­tire­ments of top seeds John Paul Wil­liams/max Free­man and Mark Len­nox/ian Bea­mond.
