Howard Warren/Iain Tullie took a narrow victory on the Ross Traders Historic Rally
on Saturday. They beat Paul Crosby/Andy Pullan by just three seconds after a day
However, at the lunch halt neither of these crews held the lead after both had picked
up test faults; Crosby for it nudged cone and Warren for failing to stop astride
a test finish line. Thus it was the Escort of Nick Bloxham/Richard Crozier who led
by the narrowest of margins of one second. This performance was all the more impressive
as it was Bloxham’s first time driving for some while and also his debut in a rear
wheel drive car.
In the afternoon Crosby/Pullan took the lead, which they held until the last regularity
when Warren/Tullie made up a four second deficit to seal the win.
