Mid Wales 09 (47)It was another barnstorming event in the HRCR championship with the head of the field being dominated by the Escort MkII’s of Gwyndaf Evans & Gareth Roberts, Nick Elliott & Dave Price along with Julian Reynolds & Ian Oakey. Something had to give and Reynolds dropped time with a puncture on stage 4 whilst stage 5 saw the demise of Elliott after a heavy crash towards the end of the stage. So it was Evans who took victory after being third at the half way point. Will Onions & Tim Hobbs came in second overall with the podium for the event and Classics being completed by Paul Griffiths & Sam Collis, (both in Escort MkII’s).

In the post Historics David Stokes & Guy Weaver were victorious from Rupert Lomax & David Alcock. Rounding out the the top three, making it an all Escort MkI affair, were Tim Jones & Don James. In the Historics Jonathan & Graham Gale (Sunbeam Tiger) took victory by just over half a minute from the Volvo Amazon of Graham Waite & Gill Cotton. Dessie Nutt & Geraldine McBride rounded out the podium in what was the only Porsche 911 entered in this category.

In the clubmen event Shaun Gardener & Ben Innes (Lancer Evo 5.9) followed up their 2007 victory with an 8 seconds victory this year. 2nd place went to Daniel Sigurdarson & Andrew Sankey in their Lancer Evo x. Completing the podium were Damian Cole & George Gwynn (Accent WRC).

If Escorts are your thing then this video will suit you down to the ground. Loads of action from Sweet Lamb –
