Dy­lan Davies se­cures Welsh ti­tle amid con­fu­sion

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.
