Welsh Border Car Club

2nd/3rd May 2009

Clerk of the Course: Iwan Jones

Route: 100 Miles

Maps: 125

Starters: 75

Winners: Gary Davies/Dale Furniss (Ford Escort)

Gary Davies became the first non-local driver in seven years to win a Welsh Border CC road rally, when he and navigator Dale Furniss dominated the Border 100.

Davies/Furniss were fastest to the first TC and then pulled away to win by over three minutes, leaving their rivals to battle for the minor positions.

Dafydd Evans/Carl Jones demonstrated their familiarity with the route by following up their Night Owl win with second place. Kevin Davies/Dorian Evans could have taken the runner up spot but managed to book in early at one TC.

Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/Wyn Roberts lay second at petrol but a broken driveshaft put them out of the rally soon afterwards. Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/Steve Price took over second but a puncture cost them four minutes and dropped them to sixth.

Simon Naughton/Gareth Thomas and Reian Jones/Michael Gilbey finished on the same penalty, with the former crew taking the Expert class win as they were the faster of the two at the first TC.

Richard Jerman/Aled Richards held second initially but went out with electrical problems at Petrol.
