Fastest on ev­ery stage over two days of the Glyn Memo­rial were lo­cal crew Wil Owen and Rob Hopewell in their Ford Es­cort Mk2, fin­ish­ing over a minute ahead of Dave Davies and Ian Jones, who gained their best re­sult in the BMW M3 Com­pact.

Mike Tay­lor and 15-year-old Louise Gilks claimed third in a Tal­bot Sun­beam-lotus, the re­sult pro­mot­ing Tay­lor to the ANWCC Run­ner-up spot.

Eric Roberts and Iwan Pritchard took the two-litre class in their Es­cort Mk2 and fourth over­all, thanks to Rob Hughes and Sion Cun­niff hit­ting a chi­cane in their Ford Fo­cus Milling­ton and so throw­ing away a class win. Sec­ond, some dis­tance back in 18th, were road rally com­peti­tors Gary and Jamie Olleren­shaw, in a Honda Civic. Steve Bishop and Ja­son Dunn claimed third in a Peugeot 206 GTI.

Fifth over­all were Howard Pot­ter and Martin Haggett who took the 1600 class in their Sun­beam, but only just ahead of the Peugeot 106 Maxi of Christo­pher Stan­field and Sarah Ed­wards, third go­ing to lo­cal crew Der­wyn Roberts and Paul Mor­ris in an Es­cort Mk3.

WAMC con­tenders Wil­liam Mains and Vince Mosley took their Vaux­hall Nova to 16th over­all and the 1400cc class win ahead of Dion Row­lands and Kai Al­cock in a Vaux­hall Corsa, the one-litre Toy­ota Aygo of Alis­tair Dodd and Tara Lee Hard­man third.
