ROAD RALLY ROUND-UP

Motor Sport News - - Rally Reports - Ian Mills

Two years ago Gary Olleren­shaw/ Jamie Olleren­shaw had been in con­tention for the win of the Rali Goffa James Tren­holme, but they threw it away when they booked in early at one time con­trol.

This year the fa­ther-and-son team made no such mis­take and came home to win the novice-ori­ented event by ex­actly two min­utes, hav­ing led through­out the event.

Gruffydd Jones/ Iwan Wil­liams had been 47 sec­onds be­hind the win­ners at the half­way point, but they lost ground in the sec­ond half and al­most fell into the grasp of third-placed Bryn Jones/gareth Davies, who were only nine sec­onds be­hind at the Fin­ish.

Semi-ex­pert crews could en­ter but weren’t el­i­gi­ble for over­all awards. The class was won by 2014 over­all win­ners Gwyn­for Jones/chris Evans. Their to­tal penalty was three sec­onds be­hind that of the Olleren shaws, but over three min­utes ahead of their near­est class ri­vals. The cat­e­gory had been led at half­way by the BMW of Iwan Rhys Jones/ St­ef­fan Llewe­lyn, but they re­tired in the sec­ond half.

This was Har­lech & DMC’S third road rally of the year and not only did it pro­vide a train­ing ground for novice crews, it also raised money for lo­cal schools in the process.
