Mark ‘GT’ Roberts/Dylan Jenkins emerged from a close battle over a demanding route
to win the Pacemaker Rally. The pair had led initially before dropping to second
at Petrol, but they reclaimed the top spot by the Finish. Nic Morris/Martin Phasey
were only 11 seconds behind in second place but the rest of the field were more than
three minute behind them.
Two other crews were on the same pace as the top two finishers but hit problems.
Richard Jerman/Nick Bloxham led at the halfway point but a major wrong slot and a
puncture meant they finished in fifth. Dale Furniss/Steve Herbert were also in the
running until sheared wheel nuts put them out just before Petrol.
The result of the night came from Russell Woodley/Debbie Furniss. Furniss added to
her recent successes by navigating Woodley to fourth place on only his second ever
There was a rare retirement for Ian ‘Dude’ Roberts/Gwawr Hughes; they broke a shaft
on their Golf.
