A tough Night Owl Rally was won in dominant style by Lewis Morgan/Max Freeman. They romped home more than two minutes ahead of the field as many rivals fell by the wayside.
At the petrol halt, taken at around the two-thirds distance, the winners led but would have had Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/Gwawr Hughes just seven seconds behind, however Hughes had made an uncharacteristic error and booked in four seconds early at one time control. This mistake gave her a fail, the first in over two years of competition, and, with no prospect of a top result, she and Roberts withdrew.
Reian Jones/Michael Gilbey moved up from fourth at the fuel halt to take the runner up spot ahead of Dale Furniss/Nick Bloxham in an overheating Golf.
John Davies/Aled Richards retired after their Astra got beached on a small hedge and Steffan ‘DR’ Davies/Dylan Jenkins were forced out by rear suspension failure.
