A good days sport again in the Walters motorsport complex, albeit some more challenging roads would have been appreciated. Read More »

Morgan hit back to halve the deficit on run 4, which saw the crews running in the opposite direction, but Davies hit back with a time 9 seconds faster on run 5 and secured victory with another fastest time on run 6. Geoff Jones & Steve Pugh (Escort MkII) completed the podium and were the first 2WD crew home. Read More »
