Breidden Road Rally

Sponsored by Boomerang Wear Ltd

Welsh Border Car Club

4th/5th October 2008

Clerk of the Course: Steve Herbert

Route: 140 Miles (Novices: 115 Miles)

Maps: 125 & 126

Starters: 87

Winners: Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/Dale Furniss (VW Golf GTi)

Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/Dale Furniss overcame stiff opposition and torrential rain to finally take victory on their home club’s premier event. The pair had been in a three way battle for the lead throughout the rally, Phil Turner/Patrick Walsh and Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/Dylan Jenkins being the other protagonists.

At the halfway point the latter crew led but they were overhauled by Turner/Walsh after the seventh of the event’s nine sections. However an all out effort over the final few miles saw Roberts/Furniss move from third to first place on the line.

Richard Jerman/Iwan Jones, who were looking for their third Welsh Championship win in a row, were in the lead when they were forced out by two fan belt breakages with only a quarter of the rally run.

‘Mad’ Mick Jones, partnered by Graham Raeburn, had a frustrating night, brake problems ending his run on a section through his own timber yard.
