Frank Bird & Jack Morton (Focus WRC) followed up their 2019 success on the Donignton Rally by retaining it in 2020. They were fastest on all 7 stages and took victory by almost 3 minutes from Ian Woodhouse & Paul Rowland (Escort MkII). Woodhouse had an advantage of almost 50s going in to the final pair of stages and understandably backed off still finishing over 20s clear of Barry Morris & Tom Hutchings (Darrian T90 GTR+). Morris had been in a tight battle with Peter Smith & Patrick Walsh (Fiesta R5) and was 1s behind with a stage to go, eventually coming out on top by 3s. Read More »

The Lake District saw what might be the last forest rally for some time in the UK and it was Adrien Fourmaux & Renaud Jamoul (Fiesta R5 MkII) who utterly dominated to take victory by over a minute and a half, along with fastest time on all 7 stages. Freddie Milne & Paul Beaton (Fiesta R5) were an early 2nd overall but they went off on stage 2 leaving the way open for Dylan Davies & Llion Williams (Fabia R5), who were 3rd after the opening stage. They dropped half a minute on stage 2 so it was Stephen Petch & Michael Wilkinson (Fiesta WRC) who took over 2nd place. Petch didn’t put a wheel wrong and kept 2nd place and it was Russ Thompson & Andy Murphy (Evo IX) who took 3rd place mid event and completed the podium. Read More »
