Firefly Road Rally

Sponsored by E Nixon & Son Ltd Haulage Contractors

Broughton & Bretton Motor Club

13th/14th September 2008

Clerk of the Course: Paul Dolby

Route: 120 Miles

Maps: 116, 117, 125 & 126

Starters: 52

Winners: Neil Roberts/Dale Furniss (Peugeot 205 GTi)

Neil Roberts/Dale Furniss ran out convincing winners of the Firefly, finishing over 17 minutes ahead of their nearest rivals Kev Parry/Paul Holmberg. This margin of victory was largely due to the fact that they managed to avoid being held up by other cars getting stuck on the numerous tracks used on the event. Despite these circumstances it wasn’t a win gifted by luck, the pair had forged into the lead while other leading crews struggled with the conditions. This meant that they pulled clear of the carnage behind them.

Mei Jones/Iwan Jones had led at the early petrol halt but they lost time after becoming stuck on one white. A similar fate also befell Arwel Jones/Dylan John Williams, who had been in second. Top seeds Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/Steve Price were forced out by damage caused by clipping a rock, while Richard Jerman/Roger Evans ran out of spares after two punctures.
