The competitve season got underway with our first visit to Brands Hatch in the best part of 30 years for the inaugral running of the Brands Hatch Stages. The rally was dominated by John Indri & Dave Engwell (Darrian T90 GTR) as they set 7 fastest times, from the 8 stages run on the event, to take victory by over a minute. It did not start out that way as they were only 2nd fastest on the opening stage as the Focus WRC of Nigel Mummery & Fiona Scarrett went fastest on the opening stage. Mummery then slipped back to a comfortable 2nd overall before a spin on stage 5 saw them beached in the gravel trap at Paddock Hill Bend.The battle for 2nd was then played out between Mark Straker & Simon May (Darrian T90) and Dave West & Keith Hounslow (306 Maxi Kitcar). In the end Straker took it as both crews were felt lucky to finish after varying incidents over the 2nd half of the rally.
