tyneside15 (9)In fitting with 2015 to date, Otterburn saw a mixture of damp, windy and sunny conditions which made for a challenging day on the military ranges. Our vantage point on stage 2 saw almost all of the top crews clip a wet wooden bridge mid-stage until Richard Sykes & Emma Morrison (DS3 R3T) made a considerably larger impact blocking the stage and halting the stage. Simon Mauger & Jonathan Hawkins (Metro 4M4) were fastest on two stages to lead Damian Cole & Jack Morton (Fiesta WRC) by just two seconds. Steve Simpson & Patrick Walsh (Impreza WRC) closed in from 3rd on the 2nd loop of stages with fastest times until a puncture on stage 6 saw them fall down the standings. Read More »

harryflatters15 (5)Wet and windy conditions dominated the day on this years Harry Flatters which saw Damian Cole & Jack Morton take their Fiesta WRC to a maiden victory. At the lunch break they were second overall after an understandably tentative start in the new car which saw an inspired Mark Jones & Terry Martin (BMW M3) take the lead by 18 seconds. A string of 3 further fastest stage times saw Cole win by 49 seconds with Jones a superb 2nd overall. A broken windscreen wiper saw Eian Pritchard & Steve McPhee (Focus WRC) drop a whole heap of time on the opening stage but with that fault fixed they came back through the field to finish 3rd overall.

chateauimpney15 (181)The re-birth of an event from the past saw a packed day of action at Chateau Impney. With cars from Victorian times right through to the 1960’s there was plenty on offer amongst a near 200 car field. It was no surprise that it was the single seaters that battled for the win and it turned out to be a quartet of Lotus’s which dominated the top of the standings. Jack Woodhouse took the overall honours in his Lotus 20/22 just over half a second ahead of Martin Walford in his Lotus 22FJ. Completing the podium just over a quarter of a second back was David Gidden in his Lotus 23B just four hundredths of a second ahead of Paul Matty in his Lotus 35 F2. Read More »
