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 enough 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.
