nickygrist15 (2)After what felt like a long time away we were back to UK rallying for the Nicky Grist Stages and a great field had been assembled. Stephen Petch & Ian Windress (Fiesta R5+) and Charlie Payne & Carl Williamson (Fiesta) were joint fastest through the first stage, with Jamie Anderson & Jon Scott (Lancer WRC) fastest on stage 2, leaving a different look to the top of the standings. A blistering pair of times through stages 3 & 4 saw Paul Bird & Aled Davies (Focus WRC) take the lead which he never let slip. Euan Thorburn & Richard Cooke (Focus WRC) and David Weston & Kirsty Riddick (Impreza WRC) were locked in a close battle for 2nd place. Stage 6 would see Thorburn lose ground despite 2 fastest stage times in the final 4, so it was Weston who took 2nd overall from his fellow Scotsman.

In the Silver Star Callum Black & Paul Wakely (DS3 R3 Max) were on it all day to take the 2WD class from Rudi Lancaster & George Gwynn (Escort MkII) just a further 5 seconds ahead of Richard Sykes & Emma Morrison (DS3 R3T). Ash Slights & Alex Lee (Yaris) were victorious in the 1400 class 26 seconds ahead of Ryan Weston & Mark McCulloch (Satria) with a similar margin back to the Nova of Dave & Freddy Brick.
