That end of term feeling was with us once again as the BTRDA Rally Championship reached its final round, the Cambrian. With a very impressive entry it mattered little that most of the titles had already been decided. In the main rally Hugh Hunter & Andy Marchbank (Focus WRC) made a welcome return to the series and at first service were leading by 9 seconds from 2010 Gold Star Champions Steve Perez & Paul Spooner (Focus WRC). But disaster then struck on stage 3 as Hunter lost almost a minute and a half and with that the battle for victory was over. Perez managed the gap and cruised to BTRDA round win number 6 in 2010. Hunter was a creditable 2nd and with any other likely contenders for victory falling off or out of the rally, Alex Allingham & Mark Glennerster brought their group N Impreza home in 3rd sealing the Welsh Championship too.

With the championship decided long ago this rally was all about who wanted to win it and after 10 stages, (following the cancellation of SS5), John Stone & Patrick Walsh (Fabia WRC) took victory by just 3 seconds from Michael Glendinning & Alastair Roughead (Impreza). Glendinning had the lead by a second but Stone was charging back after dropping time early on. Completign the podium were John Indri & John Harland (Darrian T90 GTR) making their first visit to the ranges. Read More »

What a weekend at Silverstone for our first Britcar 24hr?! Even the torrential ran did little to dampen our spirits as we witnessed a cracking battle between Ferrari and Porsche after the faster Moslers and stunning Aquilla all suffered various technical issues, resulting in them dropping huge chunks of time or retiring. Current Britcar championship leaders Team MJC Ltd only made a late decision to participate in this race and after a gripping last few hours their superior pace payed off as the Ferrari 430 GT2 of Witt Gamski/Keith Robinson/John Gaw/Phil Dryburgh took victory by almost a minute, winnning class 1 in the process.
