A crazy day of motorsport saw us take in the first 4 stages of the AGBO Historic Stages, at Weston Park. Leigh & Chris Armstrong (Escort MkII) held a slender 1s lead over Mike Simpson & Dale Gibbons (Escort MkII), after 4 stages. With the pair exchanging times over the next two stages they were tied with 4 stages to go. Simpson then took the initiative on stage 7 before Armstrong clawed back the lost time on stages 8 & 9. Going in to the final stage they were tied and it was Armstrong who went fastest by 4 seconds to take the win.

Chris & Steve Grundy (Escort MkII) were in the mix through the first 4 stages, but as the front pair exchanged fastest times the Grundy’s slipped back. They had no real pressure from the crews behind so completed the podium, 44s off 2nd place. Stuart Anderson & Kenny Owen (Chevette HSR) took class D in 5th overall, whilst class A went to the superb Mini Cooper S of John & Martin Cressey, who took 6th place overall. The last class winners were Steven Powell & Jamie Hawkins who took class B, in 23rd overall.
