Clerk of the Course: Dalis Ifans & Carwyn Jones
Route: 120 Miles
Winners: Adrian Davies/Dorian Evans (Ford Escort RS)
Adrian Davies/Dorian Evans took a close fought victory on Lampeter MC’s Dafydd Richards Memorial Rally.
The 120 mile event used the lanes to the north and west of the club’s hometown and it proved a difficult test for crews as the autumnal weather had made the going very slippery.
By the halfway point the event had turned into a two horse race, Glyn Evans/Eryl Evans led the eventual winners by twelve second, with the rest of the field over a minute behind. Davies/Evans took full advantage as the second half moved to their home territory, the route actually passing the driver’s house. By the Finish they had reversed the positions and emerged with a twenty second victory margin.
Wyn Thomas/Patrick Walsh never quite matched the two crews pace but finished in a clear third place. Carl Williamson was making his first competitive outing since his accident on the Jim Clark and he navigated Ian Carter into fourth place.
Llion Rees/Aled Evans were the leading Semi-Expert crews finishing in an impressive fifth place overall. The leading novices were Arwel Hamer/Martin Griffiths who finished in twentieth place.
Martyn O’Connor/Peter Collins, Gareth Evans/Dylan Evans and Gary Davies/Maurice Leach all failed to make the start, while top seeds Ceri Richards/Aled Jones were an early retirement when the steering broke on their Escort on 'Dalton's White'.
Daniel 'Lwni' Jones/Daniel Maclachlan withdrew soon after Petrol with a number of minor mechanical problems. Owen Llwyd Edwards/Aneurin James broke the suspension on their Vauxhall Astra.
John 'Mk1' Thomas/Elgan Davies missed out on a top placing after they picked up a fail for a wrong approach at a triangle control.
