Pacemaker Road Rally

Sponsored by Naughton Motors of Knighton

Knighton Motor Club

12th/13th July 2008

Clerk of the Course: Steve Price

Route: 120 Miles

Maps: 136 & 137

Starters: 72

Winners: Richard Jerman/Iwan Jones (Ford Escort)

Iwan Jones navigated Richard Jerman to the driver’s maiden rally a comparatively short but highly demanding Pacemaker Rally. The pair led for most of the night, losing first place briefly just before Petrol to John Davies/Eurig Davies. The latter crew edged in front by three seconds to head the field at the break, but Jerman/Jones soon re-established their lead and sped away to win by 40 seconds.

Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/Dale Furniss were the only other crew to be anywhere near the pace of two front runners but they were still over a minute behind Davies/Davies at the Finish.

Prior to the start, the battle for the win had been expected to be between 2007 winners Glyn Price/Steve Herbert and Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/Graham Raeburn, however both crews succumbed to transmission breakages before a third of the rally was run. The same failure also accounted for the Rover of Simon Naughton/Gareth Thomas.
