4th/5th October 2008
Clerk of the Course: Steve Herbert
Route: 140 Miles (Novices: 115 Miles)
Maps: 125 & 126
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.
