Clerk of the Course: Gareth Morgan & Wayne Jones
Route: 120 Miles
Winners: Iwan Pritchard/Gwawr Hughes (Ford Escort)
After losing a win in 2011 on a tie break, Iwan Pritchard/Gwawr Hughes made no mistake in 2012 when they took a dominant victory on the Eagle Road Rally, a repeat of their 2010 success.
Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/Shaun O’Gorman were second, over four minutes behind thanks to a time consuming late wrong slot. The leading Expert crew of Tim Powley/Max Freeman were a further minute down in third.
Meirion Evans/Iwan Jones, Richard Jerman/Lowri Davies and Jamie Jukes/Dilwyn John were the leading crews at Petrol however all became victims of their pace in the second half, all retiring after contact with the scenery.
Rob Francis/Steve Mills would have taken the Semi-Expert class win but for a fail after booking in early, this allowed Rhys Morris/Aled Wyn Jones through for the category award.
Top seeds Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/Steve Price retired at the quarter distance mark with a broken water hose, while Hywel Davies/Nick Bloxham suffered a gearbox failure on their Escort.
