The Lake District saw what might be the last forest rally for some time in the UK and it was Adrien Fourmaux & Renaud Jamoul (Fiesta R5 MkII) who utterly dominated to take victory by over a minute and a half, along with fastest time on all 7 stages. Freddie Milne & Paul Beaton (Fiesta R5) were an early 2nd overall but they went off on stage 2 leaving the way open for Dylan Davies & Llion Williams (Fabia R5), who were 3rd after the opening stage. They dropped half a minute on stage 2 so it was Stephen Petch & Michael Wilkinson (Fiesta WRC) who took over 2nd place. Petch didn’t put a wheel wrong and kept 2nd place and it was Russ Thompson & Andy Murphy (Evo IX) who took 3rd place mid event and completed the podium.

In the 2WD section of the rally Matthew Robinson & Graham Wilcock (Escort MkII) were 10th overall and took victory by just 11s from Stuart Egglestone & Brian Hodgson (Escort MkII). Completing the 2WD podium were Ben Friend & Cliff Simmons (Escort MkII) in 14th overall, just over a minute further back. Behind them were the 1400 class winners Mat Smith & Chris Row (Satria) just 6s back after a spectacular drive all event long.
