Dane Skeete and Tyler Mayhew started their 2020 motor sport campaign in fine style yesterday (Sunday) with victory in Flow King of the Hill, beating Jamaica’s Jeff Panton by just four-hundredths of a second, the smallest winning margin in the 13-year history of the event. Having led after the first of four timed runs, Britain’s Rob Swann finished third, while Barry Mayers claimed two-wheel-drive honours, sixth overall.

Two British crews achieved their best results to complete the podium: third two years ago, Roger Duckworth (Technia Impreza WRC S6), co-driven by Mark Broomfield, finished second, while Scotland’s Andy Scott and Laura Connell (Rock Oil/Motis/Teng Tools/Rostrum Sportswear/Billfisher III Ford Fiesta R5) finished third. Duckworth also collected the award as highest-placed Non-national 4wd, while Scott won the new FIA R5 class and Connell was highest-placed female co-driver. Read More »
