AFG Rali Mon 2004

The 85 mile route used both the lanes and private tracks of northern Anglesey. It included a run along the notrious beach road near Caergeiliog.

By the petrol halt Jones/Herbert had built up a lead of 59 seconds over Carwyn Edwards/Aled Pennant (Mini), with Keith Parry/Lee Evans (VW Golf GTi) 27 seconds further back in third. Elfyn Richards/Alan Jôs (Peugeot 205 GTi) were in fourth, just one second behind Parry/Evans.

The beach road had already claimed some victims. Steven John Williams/Geoff Williams (Peugeot 205 GTi) wrong slotted on the track and became stuck; they went OTL before getting out. Dewi Williams/Darren Garrod (Peugeot 205 GTi) hit a large puddle on the road and lost almost ten minutes before they got going again.

Top seeds Eifion Thomos/Carwyn Evans only made it as far as the second section before pulling up with their Peugeot 205 overheating, suggesting a broken engine.

The Finish Jones/Herbert had extended their lead to 2m 21s, with Edwards/Pennant maintaining their second position to the end. behind them there had been significant changes.

Keith Parry/Lee Evans survived a lengthy stop to repair a broken exhaust, the time lost dropped them to fifth. Meanwhile Elfyn Richards/Alan Jôs dropped to eighth after missing the very final triangle control of the event.

These misfortunes allowed Dyfed Pritchard/Alwyn Jones (Peugeot 205 GTi) through to take third place, with William Lewis/Gwawr Hughes (Peugeot 205 GTi) in fourth.

Darren Jones/Heddwyn Jones had been going well until the impact of a large puddle on the final section dislodged the starter motor on their Corsa. They got to the Finish but had to cut the last few controls; they were classified in 31st place.

Noel Hughes/Ceri Hughes (Saab 96 V4) also made the Finish after cutting route, as the Saab's gearbox began to fail.

Lee Hodson/Owen Jones won the Semi-Expert class, while Ian Fox/Dave Jones were the leading novices.

Allan Roberts/Simon Cartwright (Ford Escort) retired after hitting the bank at 332 928½.
