Mcer­lean takes Anglesey win and the Ju­nior ti­tle

Motor Sport News - - Rally Reports - Re­sults

Win­ner of the Ju­nior sec­tion last year, Ir­ish driver Josh Mcer­lean re­peated the re­sult in his Peugeot 107 and with it se­cured the ti­tle in the Ju­nior For­mula 1000 Cham­pi­onship, with Tommy Mcer­lean co-driv­ing.

Close be­hind came Scot­tish driver Fin­lay Ret­son in his Citroen C1, with ex­pe­ri­enced co-driver Jonathan Jack­son di­rect­ing him, to claim the Scot­tish ti­tle. Not far be­hind was fel­low Scots­man Ewan Tin­dall in an­other Citroen, with Paul ‘Rocky’ Hud­son on the notes.

Al­most all the large en­try com­pleted the 16 stages, but one driver miss­ing was Tom Llewellin, son of Bri­tish cham­pion David. The young­ster has im­pressed with his rate of de­vel­op­ment this year and was set­ting stage win­ning times be­fore he clipped a tyre stack and broke a shaft. That ended any chance of the ju­nior ti­tle which he was in con­tention for prior to the in­ci­dent.
