jaffa12 (7)Our first visit to Pembrey was a wet one, unsurprisingly. Not too bad on us during the day as the standing water around made for hazardous conditions but in turn provided plenty of spectacular action for the large post Christmas crowd. Proving to be the class of the field were Peter Lloyd & Emma Todd (Impreza WRC) who won by the best part of 2 minutes, in the end. Paul Fowden & Jason Sugden (Impreza) were a good 2nd overall, 19 seconds ahead of Geoff Kitney & Ken Gibbard (Lancer Evo VI). Read More »

It played it’s part too as 2011 winners Dave Wright & Michael Wilkinson (Evo IX) ere early victims on the first stage. Pre-event most people would have picked Paul Bird & Kirsty Riddick (Focus WRC) in car no.2 for the win, but they did not have a good start either and only took the lead on stage 4 after a sluggish time on stage 1 saw Alex Allingham & Mark Glennerster (Impreza). Bird then retired on the final stage which allowed Allingham to take a well deserved and comfortable victory. Read More »
