Ge­orge Williams fol­lowed up his de­but win on the re­cent Rali Mon with vic­tory on Satur­day night’s Powys Lanes Rally. He and nav­i­ga­tor Jon Hawkins emerged from a close bat­tle for the lead to take a de­ceiv­ingly de­ci­sive win­ning mar­gin of al­most a minute and a half.

At Petrol the pair held a 5s lead over Will Ar­row­smith/daniel Stone, with top seeds Kevin Davies/dale Bowen a fur­ther 10s in ar­rears. The fi­nal test proved crit­i­cal; Ar­row­smith/stone lost two min­utes with a wrong slot, while Davies/bowen hit a bank and lost 10s but held on to sec­ond.

Third place was taken by Mark Len­nox/ Ian Bea­mond, al­though they were al­most three min­utes be­hind the win­ners. Kevin ‘Pen­claw’ Jones/alan James put in an­other im­pres­sive per­for­mance tak­ing fourth over­all and the Ex­pert Class win.

Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/cadog Davies fin­ished sixth, which was enough for the driver to se­cure the Welsh Cham­pi­onship for the sec­ond time (see rally news).
