Trackrod09 (117)A glorious day was what North Yorkshire delivered for this years Trackrod Rally, where the culmination of several championships would make it a decisive event. In the Historic Cup the overall victory was played out by the Escort MkII’s. It was the controlled but fast pace of Julian Reynolds & Ian Oakey that took a 35 second victory from the flambuoyant Martin McCormack & Jim Goodman, who won on the entertainment stakes. Completing the podium, and wrapping up the Classic category, were Darren Moon & Chris Parsons. Behind them though was a great non-Ford battle for 4th place. In the end Steve Magson & Geoff Atkinson (Ascona 400) pipped Rob Smith & Shaun O’Gorman (Chevette) by less than a second. Read More »

jimclark09 (12)A superb weekend up in the Scottish Borders saw a battle royale between Eugene Donnelly and Tim McNulty. The Fabia WRC of Donnelly & Paddy Toner eventually came out on top with the Impreza WRC S12B of McNulty & David Moynihan 23 seconds behind. Eamonn Boland & Michael Jo Morrissey completed the podium in their Impreza WRC S12B.  In the BRC Mark Higgins & Bryan Thomas (Impreza N11) held off the hard charging Evo IX of Keith Cronin & Greg Shinnors, with both crews suffering numerous issues throughout the event.

pirelli-09-3Stunning weather up North once again, this time for the Pirelli Rally. The headlines will be taken by Keith Cronin & Greg Shinnors, who took their Lancer Evo IX to a last stage victory over the Impreza N11 of Mark Higgins & Bryan Thomas, in a repeat of what happened on the Bulldog Rally.  Completing the podium places was the Evo X of David Bogie & Kevin Rae.

However the rally looked like a dream debut for the Proton Satria Neo S2000 of Guy Wilks & Phil Pugh but an off, and subsequent fire, put paid to his chances of a hat-trick of wins on the Pirelli. Further back Craig Breen & Gareth Roberts took the honours in the Fiesta Sporting Trophy whilst Martin McCormack & Phil Clarke won the C2R2 cup with Richard Sykes & Simon Taylor taking top honours in the Swift Cup.

bulldog-09-97The Bulldog more than lived up to its billing with great battles at the front. For us this was primarily a historic rally which saw Nick Elliott & Dave Price dominate the field, with only Julian Reynolds & Ian Oakey able to keep them honest. The next nearest contenders were over a minute and a half back with Seamus O’Connell & Dai Roberts making it an Escort MkII 1-2-3. 

In the Post Historics David Higgins & Ieuan Thomas took victory from Rupert Lomax & David Alcock by fifteen seconds. Behind the two Escort MkI’s and beating the Porsches was Jeremy Easson & Alun Cook in the Ford Capri. In the Historics the top three were Ford free, with Jonathan & Graham Gale taking their recently acquired Sunbeam Tiger to 1st place, with Stuart Rolt & Richard Pomfret second in their Porsche 911. Graham Waite & Gill Cotton completed the podium in their Volvo Amazon. Read More »
