Clerk of the Course: Bob Milloy
Route: 98 Miles
Maps: 96 & 97
Winners: Peter Gorst/Derek Bateson (Vauxhall Nova GTE)
Peter Gorst/Derek Bateson were declared the winners of The Harry and The Ivy Clubmans Rally after tying on penalties with Paul Schatz/Jerry Hettrick. The Kirby Lonsdale MC organised event used a 98 mile route, which took crews in a roughly clockwise loop around the rally’s base at Kendal. The event, named after the Club President and his wife, was aimed at novice crews.
Gorst/Bateson and Schatz/Hettrick both finished the event clear of any penalties but the victory was awarded to the former crew as Schatz/Hettricks were Masters and were therefore not eligible for the overall award.
Steve Entwhistle/Jeff Smith and Ian Knowles/Neil Harrison also finished without any time penalties, but both had missed a Code Board each and were therefore awarded a fail a piece. The two crews were divided on the furthest clean rule and as Knowles/Harrison had missed their board on an early section, third place went to Entwhistle/Smith.
Jonathan Brass/Tom Wilcox, winners of the Novice Class on the Westmorland Rally, finished fifth in their Nissan Sunny to repeat their class winning performance. Second in class went to Mark Binnie/Colin Lawson, who finished in seventh place.
Jeff Hall/Paul Bosdet were another crew with a clean sheet at the halfway point of the rally, however they failed to make the finish after the steering arm broke on their Mini Cooper. Paul Whitelock/Jake Carlin were also going well, having dropped nine minutes but being clear of fails, they were forced out when the navigator became ill.
Of the twenty-seven starters only thirteen made it to the Finish. Among the retirements were Glenn Fothergill/Steve Head, who planted their Nova in a wall.
