Eagle Road Rally

Sponsored by Nigel Pugh Motor Engineering & Viking Motorsport

Newtown & District Auto Club

1st/2nd June 2013

Clerk of the Course: Gareth Morgan & Gary Mitchell

Route: 120 Miles

Maps: 136

Starters: 83

Winners: Meirion Evans/Iwan Jones (Ford Escort)

Meirion Evans/Iwan Jones returned to winning ways, taking their first win of the year on The Eagle Road Rally. The pair finished almost a minute ahead of great rivals Richard Jerman/Lowri Davies, the latter crew having been delayed for almost two minutes after drowning out in a ford in the first half. This occurred just after Jerman had taken the lead from Evans, who had led from the off.

Top seeds Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/Gwawr Hughes won the battle of the Golfs, taking third well clear of Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/Dylan Jenkins, who had been hampered by a lack of brakes and finished fourth.

The Eagle proved to be a tough test; almost half of the starters failed to make the finish and only 28 of these were fail free.
