The Twilight Rally
1st September 2007
Clerk of the Course: Steve Durbin & James Chappelle
Route: 100 Miles
Maps: 161, 162 & 171
Venues: Cwmcarn, Caerwent & Chepstow Park
Winners: Matthew Maidment/James Morgan (Peugeot 205 GTi)
Matthew Maidment/James Morgan took the narrowest of wins, passing long time leaders Ian 'Dude' Roberts/Dale Furniss on the very last test to finish just two seconds ahead.
The daylight road rally had crews tackle an intense ten hours of motoring which saw almost half the field failing to finish.
Roberts/Furniss led from the short opening test until a return to the venue.
Maidment/Morgan had been eighth early on but fought their way back, a time 18 seconds quicker then Roberts/Furniss saw them take the win on the line.
Carl Davies/Andy Card could have taken the win but for a penalty when they booking in early on the first visit to Caerwent. Steve Knibbs/Gerwyn Barry had been as high as third at one point, they slipped back to eighth at the finish but were still the leading Semi-Expert crew.
Mark 'GT' Roberts/Steve Herbert went out when a drive shaft broke while fuel pump problems put Mark Robinson/David Powell out of contention.
