Route: 80 Miles + 11 Tests
Winners: Arwel 'Sbidi' Hughes Jones/Huw Rhys Manion (Ford Escort)
Arwel Hughes Jones/Huw Rhys Manion took a start to finish win on Harlech & DMC’s first venture into daylight road rallying. The event consisted of eleven tests, ten at the Trawsfynydd Ranges, plus a low speed regularity in the Dolgellau Maze
The winners stamped their authority on the rally by being the only crew to clean the first test. They had established a lead of sixteen seconds by the halfway point and extended this by a further ten by the Finish.
Gwawr Hughes had won five stage rallies the Ranges in 2008 and she navigated Stephen Williams to the runner up spot, a position they’d held all day.
On Saturday Sion Matthews had taken victory as a driver on the Bulldog Mini Rally, on Sunday he took on the navigator role and guided Derwyn Roberts to sixth overall and the Semi-Expert class win. Iestyn Williams/Nia Hughes would have taken the category but for a wrong test on Test Five.
