Winners: Peter Zjalic/Richard Preece (Toyota Corolla)
Peter Zjalic/Richard Preece took a hard fought victory on last weekend's PK Memorial Rally, with the result being decided on the one section timed to the second. The Bala & District MC organised event was a counter towards both the West Midlands and North Western Championships, having been dropped from the Welsh series after the organisers had been forced to postponed the event from its intended July date.
There were a number of crews who were free of penalties at the halfway halt, but the second half started with the one section timed to the second. Times on this tie-breaker decided the first four places. Zjalic/Preece were an impressive 30 seconds faster than their nearest rivals and with a clear run through the rest of the event, they thus secured the win. Paul Hughes/Owen Dodd were second, just three seconds ahead of Geraint Davies/Sarah Gluyas.
These results meant that both Zjalic/Preece and Davies/Gluyas maintained their challenge for the West Midlands title, series leaders Dennis Quinn/Andrew Thomson having given the event a miss.
In the North Western series Paul Homberg, with Dave Pitchford on the maps, finished fourth, while title rival Bryan Harrison was only twelfth. This meant that with three rounds remaining in the series either driver could still take the title.
Kevin Parry/Gareth Price retired their Corolla on the first section with an electrical problem. Meanwhile Bro Cader winner Ian Jones, partnered by Alan Williams, were another crew free of penalty, when they went off on the tie breaker section. Dave Jones/BazGreen were heading for fifth, when they picked up a puncture, losing four minutes and two places in the process.
Keith Parry/Perry Roe continued their good run of results as they brought their Manta into tenth place and the Semi-Expert class win. Phil Brown/Mark Williams were top Novices in 22nd place. Thirty-two of the 51 starters completed the event.
