SONY DSCOur first ever visit to the Lincolnshire circuit was a delight and it proved to be a close fought rally too. After two stages Roger Duckworth & Aled Davies led an Impreza WRC trio of Graham Coffey & John Vance by 1 second with David Turnbull & Matthew Whattam a further second back in third. After 4 stages the gaps had hardly grown but Turnbull had swapped places with Coffey. Turnbull then wrong slotted and got a maximum, eventually fighting back to ninth, with Coffey having a minor off of the 4th pair of stages to leave Duckworth clear to win by 13 seconds.

Coffey was a fighting 2nd place after only one real mistake and the podium was completed by Chris Marshall & Simon Hunter (Evo V) who took 3rd place on the final stage. In 4th place were the top 2WD crew Pete Rayner & Richard Bonner (Escort MkII) who just missed out on the podium place, after a fine display in what had been a drying day which ended with rain.
