Neil Williams and Peter James made a triumphant return to the FUCHS LUBRICANTS MSA British Historic Rally Championship to take maximum points on round five, the Harry Flatters Rally on Epynt (Sunday 29 July).

The Ford Escort Mk2 crew used all their experience of the daunting asphalt stages over the Epynt ranges in Wales as testing weather conditions added to the challenge. Paul Barrett, co-driven by Dai Roberts, strengthened his place at the top of the championship with an excellent second place despite limited prior Epynt knowledge. Category victories went to Simon Tysoe/Paul Morris (Ford Escort Mk1) and Dessie Nutt/Geraldine McBride (Porsche 911). Read More »

An excellent first and final loop of stages saw Osian Pryce finish second on a wet, windy and extremely slippery SGC Printing Harry Flatters National A Rally, on what was his first asphalt event in a rear-wheel drive car. An engine misfire and an overshoot on the middle loop of stages were his only concerns, as he beat all but two of the four-wheel drive cars and would have finished fourth overall in his Escort Mk2, had the National A and B categories been combined.

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 »

Osian Pryce will contest his first ever asphalt rally in a rear-wheel drive car when he contests the SGC Printing Harry Flatters Rally on Epynt (Sunday 29 July) in an Escort Mk2.

The 25-year old Machynlleth-born driver has recently contested two gravel rallies in an Escort Mk2 – leading the 2WD Rally North Wales before a puncture dropped him to fourth, and setting fastest time on all five stages to win the Red Kite Stages.

Co-driven by Dale Furniss, Osian will once again drive a car supplied by Suffolk-based specialists RallyXtreme, but this time it will be a much lighter, built for asphalt, Escort Mk2 powered by a John Wilcox BDG engine, with a Kugelfischer fuel injection system. The car’s livery is similar to that used by Björn Waldegård and Ari Vatanen. Read More »
