Another fine day up in North Yorkshire saw an exciting finish to the final round of the BTRDA Championship. With the title decided in the favour of Matt Edwards, it was all to play for (especially as Edwards was in a Fiat 131 in the historic section of the rally). Charlie Payne & Carl Williamson (Fiesta) went fastest through the first two stages to open up a lead but Mat Smith & Giles Dykes (Fiesta R5) stormed back with fastest stage times on the remaining 3 stages. With Langdale to go the margin was just over 2 seconds in the favour of Payne but Smith took a superb victory by 1.2s on his 4WD debut. Steve Petch & Michael Wilkinson (Fiesta WRC) completing the podium almost a minute further back. Read More »

High winds and squally rain hit the Epynt ranges for the Harry Flatters and with road conditions changing stage by stage, tyre choice was almost a lottery. Damian Cole & Craig Drew (Fiesta WRC) started as favourites and were expected to win easily but Alex Laffey & Patrick Walsh (Fiesta R5) made them work for it. Fastest stage times were exchanged over the first two loops with Cole leading by just 8 seconds after 6 stages. With the stages reversed Cole blitzed stage 7 taking 14 seconds out of Laffey and despite clawing back 3 seconds over the next 3 stages Cole had more than enough to take victory. Rob Tout & Peredur Davies (Evo X) completed the National B podium over a minute further back. Read More »

The 2018 Rally North Wales was the first event to run to the new Rally2 format and it proved a success. With the BHRC and 2WD running through the stages first it proved to be a battle between the Ford Escort MkII’s. On the first stage though Ieuan Rowlands & Emyr Hall were fastest in the Avenger but retirement on stage 2 saw the normal Escort MkII order restored with Nick Elliott taking over the lead, despite Ryan Barrett going fastest through stage 2. Elliott, co-driven by Dave Price, was then fastest on stage 3 to take a 13 second lead in to service. Osian Pryce & Dale Furniss were up to 2nd ahead of Ryan Barrett & Paul McCann as he got to grips with RWD machinery. Read More »
