24th/25th November 2007
Clerk of the Course: John Broadhurst & Gareth Williams
Route: 117 Miles
Winners: John Leckie/Paul Holmberg (Subaru Impreza)
John Leckie/Paul Holmberg were the only crew to clean the opening section of the Farrington, this gave them a lead they weren’t to lose, however it was far from a straight forward success.
Initially they were challenged by Baz Green/Rob Jones, but this crew came to grief on the section just prior to the petrol halt, they went off the road avoiding the car of Ian Lloyd/Cyril Jones that had hit a gate post.
Leckie/Holmberg therefore arrived at the halfway point with a lead of 18 seconds, however this was to be whittled down to just three seconds at the Finish as Glyn Price/Iwan Jones stormed through the second half to move from fourth to second.
Mark 'GT' Roberts/Steve Price finished third to secure both the ANWCC and the Welsh Border Championships.
Despite the slippery conditions there was a surprisingly high finishing rate as 56 crews were classified.
