Carwyn Evans/Elfyn Richards took a narrow win in their Peugeot 205 GTi on Harlech & District MC’s E Roberts Memorial Rali Meirion.

Rali Meirion 2003
Runners Up: Huw Myfyr/Gwawr Hughes (VW Golf GTi)

The pairing came home just three seconds ahead of the VW Golf of Huw Myfyr/Gwawr Hughes. The two crews dropped time on just two of the event’s nine sections. The battle took place over 125 miles of the tight lanes in the Porthmadog area.

Dave Jones/Baz Green finished third to score significant points in the North Western Rally Championship, while Steve Herbert navigated Mei Jones to fourth to add to his series total. Less fortunate were Brynli Thomas/Paul Edwards who picked up a fail for a wrong depart at a time control.

The 2002 winners, Haydn Davies/Owen Dodd, had a difficult rally; their Golf struggled through the first half with a misfire, this was cured but failing brakes and clutch meant that fifth was their eventually finishing place.

Both Howard Price/Alan Williams and Gerallt Davies/Patrick Walsh had very short rallies, each retiring on the first hairpin with broken drive shafts.

There was a close battle for the win in the Semi-Expert class with Stephen Kerr/Helen Kerr narrowly beating Iestyn Williams/Ian Williams by twenty-six seconds.

In the Novice class Gwynfor Jones/Arwel Hughes-Jones were two minutes clear of their nearest rivals.

The Merion was the sixth round of the Welsh Championship and Jason Hardy/Alan Jôs, finishing in sixth place, took maximum points. However Gerwyn Jones/Ceri Davies took a step closer to the crown by finishing in tenth place.
