Back to the old time of the year for the Wyedean and a fantastic entry did battle on the damp stages of the Forest of Dean. Callum Black & Elliott Edmondson (Fiesta R5) were fastest through Serridge by 8 seconds but saw their lead halved on stage 2 as Josh Moffett & Jack Walby (Fiesta R5) got to grips with the conditions. They then blitzed Mailscot to lead by 13 seconds. There was no going back as Moffett went fastest on the repeat runs of all 3 stages to take victory by 46 seconds, with Black comfortable in 2nd place.
The final podium spot was up for grabs though and it was Nick Elliott & Ian Davies (Escort MkII) who held 3rd overall with one stage to go. Ben Llewellin & Ross Whittock (Escort MkII) were just 5 seconds back with Shaun Gardener & Ben Innes (Evo 5.9.2) were only a second further back. It was Gardener who snatched 3rd though by 8 seconds from Elliott, who was first 2WD crew home. Llewellin dropped 13 seconds but still managed 5th overall.
