After a number of near misses Dermot Carnegie/Paul Bosdet finally won the Three Castles
Targa Rally on Friday. This year run as a single day test-only event, the rally included
18 tests across North Wales. The opening three tests on the Great Orme were cleaned
by the top crews but Carnegie/Bosdet then set fastest times on the next five to establish
a lead they weren’t to lose.
Mark Godfrey/Sue Godfrey put up a valiant chase, but weren’t quite able to match
the pace of the winners, however they finished well clear of the third placed Lotus
of Graham Walker/Sean Toohey.
Sunday’s Kemble Targa Rally was also won in empathic style, with Ben Griffin/Steve
Connor taking the spoils on the single venue event. They were fastest on three tests.
The format of the event allowed crews to swap seats and tackle the tests again but
with reversed roles. In this guise Connor/Griffin took top times on the other tests,
but a missed PC meant they went out of the running. Notably all 52 starters finished
