Quinton 09 (3)Bit of an odd day up on the ranges with warm sun and heavy downpours. Fastest out of the blocks was Will Nicholls who led from start to finish in his Impreza WRC, co-driven by Nick Broom. Hugh Hunter & Andy Marchbank (Focus WRC) were second after only really losing out on stage 3, for the rest of the event they were level pegging swapping fastest stage times with Nicholls. Completing the podium were David Wright & Michael Wilkinson (Evo IX), consolidating their championship lead.

In the Silver Star one driver shone, Joe Price, but sadly he went OTL on stage 5 although he continued through the rest of the event. The Escort MkII driver entertained every time we saw him. In the overall standings Henri Greham & Chris Ridge took victory by 13 seconds from Mick Jones & Dale Furniss. Just over half a minute back in third were Will Onions & Tim Hobbs, making it an all Escort MkII top three.

The 1400’s saw the top three seeds lock out the podium places. Graham Middleton & Ella Flynn were running 2nd on the road but were late entries and their event was ended after a second off on the penultimate stage. Top spot went to Martyn & Richard Lewis in their Nova after they took the lead on stage 7. Darren Pinchin & Karen Watts (Satria) were set to take the lead with the demise of Middleton but had to content themselves with second place. Callum Black & Paul Wakely rounded out the top three, in their MG ZR.

There was also a historic event which was dominated by Terry Brown & Den Golding (escort MkII) who led home the other four crews by almost 7 minutes!
