Ahead of the final round of the BHRC it was all still to play for with any of three drivers up for the championship. Julian Reynolds & Patrick Walsh (Escort MkI) had the lead in the championship but they also had the greatest threat from fellow category 2 contenders on this event. Nick Elliott & Dave Price (Escort MkII) looked good in category 3 and would be there to pick up the pieces if Reynolds failed to deliver. Then there was Dessie Nutt & Geraldine McBride (911) who needed Reynolds to finish 3rd or worse and Elliott to finish 2nd or worse in their respective categories, whilst they won category 1. Elliott stormed into an early lead and with Nutt behind Rikki Proffitt & Phill Harrison (911), it was now a two way fight for the title. Read More »

The deadlock for championship supremacy continued on the Severn Valley National Historic Rally (Saturday 9 June), round four of the 2012 Kololi Beach Club MSA British Historic Rally Championship. Read More »

With a clash of two events we usually attend we went for the trip to Wales for the Severn Valley Rally. We were in for a real treat as the rally saw only half a second separate the top two. Going into the final stage Julian Reynolds & Patrick Walsh (Escort MkI) led the event, a stunning drive in a post Historic car. Kevin Davies & Dale Furniss (Escort MkII) were a few seconds behind with Nick Elliott & Dave Price (Escort MkII) hot on their heels. But barely a mile from the end of the final stage Davies’s hopes went up in smoke as his engine blew. Elliott was ahead on the road so didn’t know what had happened behind him. He was spectacular and did enough to not only win the Classic category but take overall victory from Reynolds by the closest ever victory margin in BHRC history. Read More »
