The Oswestry pairing of Paul Davies/Dave Cartwright (Ford Escort) took victory on the second running of Telford AC's Saw & Weld Road Rally. They finished over a minute and a half ahead of the nearest opposition.
Although the entry was limted to just Novice and Beginners, no Experts nor Semi-Experts were allowed, the event attarcted a healthy entry of 41 starters. Of these 25 made it to the Finish.
The 115 mile pre-plot route took crews to the north and then east of the rally's base at Telford, into the Newport/Shifnal area. All penalties for the leading runners were dropped in the tighter first half.
Tim Cooper/Marcus Watmough (Ford Escort) claimed second overall and the Novice award; they were the only crew within striking distance of the winners. After a break from rallying of 15 years Frank Morgan paired up with Richard Patton, in a Vauxhall Astra, to take the Beginner's class and fourth overall.
Top seeds, Michael Bishop/Steven Bishop (Ford Escort), finished in seventh after picking up a fail at the third PC of the night.
