A fantastic weekend of rallying saw Jason Pritchard & Phil Clarke (Focus WRC) take their 5th consecutive win on the Manx National Rally, to equal the overall victory record held by Kenny McKinstry. For 2019 the event counted as two rounds of the Protyre Motorsport UK Asphalt Rally Championship, with Friday as round 1 and Saturday as round 2. Fastest times of 3 of the opening loop of 4 stages saw Pritchard hold a 55s lead over Jamie Jukes & James Morgan (Mirage). Dan Harper & Chris Campbell had gone fastest on stage 2 and were 2nd but a minute dropped on the 4th stage saw Harper retire for the day, as a precaution. 3rd overall were Andrew Dudgeon & Joe Dooley (Evo 6.5) just over 20 seconds back. John Stone & Jack Morton (Fiesta WRC) were close behind in 4th with Harper in 5th, briefly. Read More »

The Manx National Rally was an event of huge contrasts as a deluge of rain hit the first loop of stages, on the Friday night, before glorious weather bathed the stages on Saturday. Jason Pritchard & Phil Clarke (Focus WRC) took their 4th win at the event, by over 3 minutes. The hard work was done on the opening night as Pritchard didn’t put a wheel wrong to lead by almost two minutes overnight. Daniel Harper & Chris Campbell (Mini JCW WRC) took a cautious approach to the wet conditions and were rewarded with 2nd overnight. Peter Taylor & Andrew Roughead (Fiesta WRC) were 3rd overnight, after denying Pritchard a clean sweep of stage wins, but they did not start the Saturday after being excluded. Read More »
