Ar­ron Newby and Gary Tom­lin­son had a com­fort­able win at Mal­lory Park, their Subaru Im­preza was quick­est on ev­ery stage to take vic­tory by 47 sec­onds.

Although Martin Hodg­son/ Tony Jones’ Ford Es­cort had one sec­ond in hand over Jamie El­ston/shaun Ridling­ton’s Im­preza on the open­ing stage, El­ston grad­u­ally eased clear in sec­ond af­ter tak­ing the spot on the sec­ond stage.

Hodg­son was left to de­fend third and Class 4 from fel­low Es­cort crew Stephen and Jack Til­burn, which he did with 46 sec­onds to spare.

Gary Wayne/neal Bloor’s Im­preza ousted Mike Bayliss/ Sam Bai­ley’s BMW Com­pact from fifth on stage two, leav­ing Bayliss in a day-long duel with Dave Welch/steve Mc­nulty’s Im­preza. They swapped places al­most ev­ery stage, be­fore Ross Daniels/paul Mankin took them both and se­cured sixth from stage seven.

Welch slipped up on the penul­ti­mate stage, which fi­nally handed seventh back to Bayliss, while John Grif­fiths/nigel Wet­ton’s Im­preza claimed a late eighth, from Si­mon Belcher/stu­art Proc­ter’s Im­preza and class 2 vic­tors Chris Platt/mick Robin­son’s Vaux­hall Ti­gra.
