The Powys Lanes Rally was dominated by the Escort of Kevin Davies/Dale Bowen. The pair were clean of any penalty at the petrol halt and, despite a costly wrong slot in the second half, came home clear winners. Stefan ‘DR’ Davies/Michael Gilbey trailed in almost a minute and a half behind to take the runner up spot.

Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/Gwawr Hughes had a troubled night. Fifth at Petrol they went off the road and lost three minutes in the second half. They finished in eighth place but this was enough to secure them their third straight Welsh Championship as their rivals failed to score sufficient points to deny them the title.

Reian Jones needed to take maximum points to maintain his challenge, but he and navigator Cadog Davies finished in third behind Stefan Davies who took the 100 points on offer. Neither Dale Furniss nor Nick Bloxham, the other title hopefuls, started the rally.
