Turner/Raeburn had decided on a cautious approach to the rally, their aim to avoid errors in both driving and navigating paid off as they came home ahead of a number of local crews. Top seeds Robert Wilson/Dylan Jenkins (Peugeot 205 GTi) finished in second place just eighteen seconds behind the winners.

Brecon Motor Club crews filled the next two places. Martin Leonard/Kevin Chaffey (VW Golf GTi) came in third, their challenge for the lead having faltered after wrong slots cost them about three minutes during the night. David Jones/Glyn Price (Peugeot 205 GTi) were the leading Semi-Expert crew in fourth, three minutes ahead of their nearest class rivals who were Roy Pesticcio/Simon Lannon (Ford Escort), who finished in sixth. Doug Bowkett/Clive Meredith (Peugeot 309 GTi) took the Novice Class win in twelfth place.

Other than the winners, the leading contenders for the North Western Championship had a night of mixed fortune. Dewi John Williams/Owen Dodd (Peugeot 205 GTi) took sixth place, which gave Dodd the lead in the navigators’ table. Mick Monaghan/Iain Tullie were making their first visit to Epynt and were happy to finish eighth in their newly acquired Sierra. Andrew Roberts/Steve Herbert failed to make the Finish after a power steering fluid leak led to a fire in their Impreza.

Paul Webb/Paul Morris went out after they hit a pot hole and bent the steering of their Astra GTE. While Ashley Morris/Iestyn ap Dafydd had a short event as their Sierra XR4i suffered a broken gearbox on the first loop of the Ranges. A car destroying roll in Crychan put the MG Maestro of Richard Atherton/Adrian Gladwin out of the event; the crew escaped without injury.

Owain Beaman/Mike Kimber (Peugeot 205 GTi) started at Car 2, but a series of punctures duirng the night, meant that they finished no higher than 18th overall.
