ROAD RALLY ROUND-UP
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).
