Courtesy of track maintenance the 2018 Chritsmas Stages, at Croft, were brought forward to two weekends before Christmas. 2017 winners Kevin Procter & Dave Bellerby (Fiesta WRC) did not give any of the other crews a chance as they blitzed the field setting fastest times on all 8 stages to take victory by 79 seconds. After the retirement of his son Guy from the event, it was Pete Smith who took up the chase in his Fiesta WRC and did manage to equal Procter on 1 stage, but that was it. Co-driven by Graham Wild they held off the Scottish crew of Gordon Morrison & Calum MacPherson (Impreza) to take 2nd place by 33 seconds.

4th and first 2WD crew home were Paul & Russ Swift (Escort MkII), 47 seconds behind. Peter Stephenson & Ian Windress (Impreza WRC) were 5th after an off on the first stage and a largely missed under the cover of darkness off on the final stage. They were just 17 seconds ahead of the 2nd 2WD crew home of Mark Jasper & Don Whyatt (Escort MkII).
