agbo15 (1)A crisp start and a glorious day at Weston Park saw a superb day of rallying unfold in front of us. The top trio was an all Escort MkII affair in the end with 2014 winners Oliver & Ben Davies setting fastest time on the opening two stages from Paul Evans & Ashley Trimble, just 3 seconds behind after 2 stages. Roger Moran & Joy Hoyle were up to 3rd after the 2nd stage, by just a single second from Neil Weaver & James Bailey (Darrian T9 GTR). Davies was then fastest and joint fastest on the next pair of stages before the fastest times dried up. The remaining 6 stages were shared between Moran (4) and Evans (2) but Davies kept in the top 3 times throughout to take back-to-back victories by a 4 second margin.

Evans advantage over Moran was 7 seconds after 2 stages, down to 6 seconds after 4 before dropping to just 1 second after stage 6, (following a 6 seconds lost on one stage). The penultimate pair of stages saw Evans gain another second before Moran took 4 back on the 9th stage to snatch 2nd overall. The final stage saw another second gained by Moran to cement 2nd overall with Evans 3rd. Just 7 seconds separated the top 3 in the end, albeit on a compact event which is always fiercely fought out.

In this all 2WD event the top 3 were all from class D and it was Weaver who took class C with a fine 4th overall, just over a minute off the overall winner. Mathew Roberts & Eilier Williams (Saxo) were class B in 9th overall with the smallest category, class A, going Rhys Wyn & Cadog Davies in their Nova.
