Firefly Road Rally

Sponsored by E Nixon & Son Ltd Haulage Contractors

Broughton & Bretton Motor Club

8th/9th September 2007

Clerk of the Course: Paul Dolby

Route: 120 Miles

Maps: 116, 117, 125 & 126

Starters: 61

Winners: Mark 'GT' Roberts/Steve Price (VW Golf)

Mark 'GT' Roberts/Steve Price took victory on an event that proved a very tough test for competitors as only 16 of the 61 starters were classified as finishers and only five of these were free of fails. A significant proposition of the route used farm and forestry tracks, many of these proved difficult to traverse leading to crews losing large amounts of time, they then were unable to regain it on non-competitive sections. The result was that they either had to cut route or went over their time limit.

Baz Green/Rob Jones led at Petrol, but they were just two seconds ahead of Roberts/Price. In the second half the latter crew pulled away and finished five minutes ahead. In fact Green/Jones fell to third behind Thomas Roberts/Steve Herbert, who were only in eighth place at the halfway halt.

Top seeds Stuart Kelso/Mike Hughes took fourth, while Jonty Bloxham/Nick Bloxham completed the fail free runners in fifth.
