A truly epic 7th instalment of the Roger Albert Clark Rally saw Stefaan Stouf & Joris Erard (Escort MkI) take a well earned victory, after a superb measured drive all event long. 2nd place was only decided on the 4th day of the event as Gwyndaf Evans & John Millington (Escort MkII)) eased past Andrew Haddon & Mark Crisp (Escort MkII) on the penultimate stage to finish 2nd, just over a minute behind the winners. 4th place was also sorted out on the final day in the favour of Paul Griffiths & Sam Collis (Escort MkII).
