Dylan Davies secures Welsh title amid confusion
Dylan Davies and Llion Williams have taken the Welsh Rally Championship title after a query revealed that Matt Edwards was not the champion.
Subaru Impreza driver Davies takes the crown on a tie-break with Edwards, the final round – the Wyedean Stages – having been cancelled last month.
An event statement said: “The reasons for the cancellation are many, far too many to be overcome in the short time left before the event was due to run.”
Davies therefore seals the title ahead of Edwards and Ford Fiesta RS WRC driver Luke Francis.
“We are naturally disappointed that the scheduled final round of the championship, the Wyedean Stages will not happen as the event was set to provide a great climax to the season, but that doesn’t detract from Dylan and Llion’s achievement in what has been a hugely competitive season,” said organiser David Evison.
“We are looking at all aspects of the championship to see if there are ways we can improve it and make it even more attractive to competitors. We will be unveiling further details very soon.”
The championship received a record number of entries this year.
