Class B Barlow
Fergus Barlow had been lying as high as 11th place overall at one point in his Ford Fiesta R2 until a fuel pump problem in one stage dropped him back behind the Vauxhall Corsa of Mark Constantine in Class B. “Wet weather suits us,” said Constantine. “But I’m still worried about young Barlow catching me.” He did, and won the class by just over a minute from Constantine and third-placed Alec Brown, who had been suffering from a virus all weekend, in the Peugeot 106. Gareth White would have been in contention but for two punctures in his Citroen DS 3, and Thomas Gray had been on course for a good finish until his Fiesta R2 slid off the road and knocked a front wheel off.
