Route: 90 Miles
Winners: Meredydd Jones/Bryn Jones (Peugeot 309 GTi)
Meredydd Jones/Bryn Jones competing in a Peugeot 309 GTi took a dominant win on the James Trenholme Memorial Rally. The event, Harlech & District MC’s third road rally of the year, was a novice event with expert crews excluded. Battling through heavy rain crews tackled a ninety mile route on the Lleyn Peninsula. Despite the conditions forty-one of the fifty starters completed the rally.

Expert navigator Stephen Kerr moved over to the driving seat for the event, his wife Helen took over the maps and they were rewarded with fourth overall and the win in the Novices Class.
Another husband and wife team, Rhonwen Hardy/Jason Hardy, the latter an Expert driver, followed up their class win on the Palferman with eighth overall and the first Standard Production award in their Escort.
Top North-Western crew Baz Green/Dave Jones swapped their regular seats for the rally and finished in tenth place in Jones’ Astra.
The Beginners class was won by the father and son team of Steve Guest/Robert Guest, a noteworthy achievement as the 14 year old navigator was competing on his very first rally.
Second seeds Merfyn Williams/Derwyn Roberts would have put their Vauxhall Astra into second place but picked up a fail for booking in a minute early at a time control.
