A tough Rali Gogledd Cyrmu was won in convincing style by Richard Williams/Cadog
Davies. They were never headed, taking a minute out of the field on the first section,
they held an almost four minute lead at Petrol. Despite having to back off due to
clutch worries towards the end, they extended their final winning margin to just
under five minutes.
Steve King/Dafydd Evans took the runner up spot, while former Welsh Road Rally Champion
Nick Darkin navigated his son Dan to third place, this was Nick’s first podium finish
in over twenty years.
Pre-event favourites Mark Lloyd/Rob Lloyd withdrew after missing a control, while
event sponsor John Leckie, who had Sion Matthews on the maps, retired with a broken
drive shaft in the second half while lying in fifth place.
The JD Romain Novice Rally ran alongside the main event for the first two-thirds
of its distance and was won by the Ford Puma of Paul Edwards/Shaun Baker.
