Clerk of the Course: Mark Slatcher
Route: 125 Miles
Winners: Carl Hawkins/Iain Tullie (Vauxhall Nova)
Carl Hawkins/Iain Tullie took their third Derbyshire victory of the year by taking a clear win on Mid-Derbyshire MC’s Drystone Rally.
The event, a round of the East Midlands, West Midlands and North Western Championships, attracted forty-one starters who tackled a 125 mile route. Plot ‘n bash navigation was used throughout, with crews receiving thirteen hand outs along the way.
Hawkins/Tullie dropped time on just two sections, one being the opening test which used the infamous tracks of High Rake. Craig Burgess/Lee Burgess, debuting their new Peugeot 205, were their closest challengers coming home forty-four seconds behind at the Finish.
Martin Betts/Richard Hauge were also on the pace but inadvertently dropped time in a relaxed section as a result they fell a place to fourth, behind the Impreza of Steve Webster/John Pickavance.
Steve Head/Graham Raeburn had held third place at the halfway point but struggled through the cleanable second half with fuel feed problems on their Suzuki Swift. They had to cut route and finished in 24th place.
Mick Monaghan/Owen Dodd dropped three minutes fixing a broken gear linkage but still managed ninth place. Less fortunate were Mark Whitford/Steve Porter who blew their engine on the opening High Rake section.
Iwan Griffiths/Gwawr Hughes made the journey from North Wales to win the Novice class, finishing in eleventh place overall. The Millennium Challenge, aimed at newcomers to the sport, was won by James Vincent/Kelvin Phipps.
Brynli Thomas/Steve Herbert made their first visit to Derbyshire to aid Thomas’ challenge for the ANWCC title. They finished in fifth place, however Hawkins’ win kept him in the chase.
