Simpson struck first, Cole then hit back before Simpson took stage 3 and a 5 second lead. Simpson was then fastest on 5 of the remaining stages, (and joint fastest on another), to take victory by 23 seconds from Cole. John Indri & Peter James (Impreza WRC) were almost a minute and thirty seconds further back in third place. Read More »

Our vantage point on stage 2 saw almost all of the top crews clip a wet wooden bridge mid-stage until Richard Sykes & Emma Morrison (DS3 R3T) made a considerably larger impact blocking the stage and halting the stage. Simon Mauger & Jonathan Hawkins (Metro 4M4) were fastest on two stages to lead Damian Cole & Jack Morton (Fiesta WRC) by just two seconds. Steve Simpson & Patrick Walsh (Impreza WRC) closed in from 3rd on the 2nd loop of stages with fastest times until a puncture on stage 6 saw them fall down the standings. Read More »
