With no MSA Asphalt Championship running in the 2017 the Tour of Epynt saw a smaller entry then usual but no less drama. Damian Cole & Paul Morris (Fiesta WRC) started as car 1 and after the first two loops of stages were tied for the lead with Bob Fowden & Paul Wakely (Impreza WRC). A slight off for Fowden at fourways, on stage 5, looked to hand the advantage to Cole but he retired in the stage leaving Fowden clear for a comfortable victory. In the end fastest time on the final two stages saw a victory margin of 1 minute and 34 seconds.
Behind Tomas & Eurig Davies (Fiesta R5) had shown good pace all day but held off a strong challenge from Huw Reed & Anthony Hackett (Darrian T90 GTR). The margin was just 6 seconds after Reed took 33 seconds out of Davies on the final pair of stages. It had been a mighty effort but the 2WD Darrian had lost too much time on the opening damp loop of stages.
