Mewla 09 (13)Damp conditions and drizzle for most of the day made the Mewla most autumnal, but with one of the best quality fields set to tackle the ranges in years all was set for an excllent event. The conditions made tyre choice a lottery and with several delays and cancelled stages the event was very stop start. The initial pace was set by Chris Jones & Ashley Trimble (Focaru) before Peter Lloyd & Graham Handley (Impreza WRC) took over at the top. Once the longer stages came in to play Melvyn Evans & Sean Mullally took over at the top, in their Impreza WRC, but with two stages to go an engine fault lead to their retirement at service. Peter Lloyd took over at the top, which he held until the end of the event, to make August a great month for the reigning King of Epynt.

Second place went to the 2008 Mewla winner Damian Cole, (co-driven by Martin Henry), who was debuting his new Focus WRC in an effort to keep up with the ever improving Impreza’s of Lloyd & Evans. Completing the podium 3 minutes further back were Bob Fowden & Paul Wakely (Impreza) with another good solid drive using inferior machinery to those in front of him. Top of the 2WD crews were Tim Wilson & Elgan Davies (Escort MkII) back in 7th overall.

And here is our compilation video from a very wet and autumnal Epynt –
