The Trackrod was once again the final round of the BTRDA and BHRC championships. With the BTRDA decided, for the main titles, all eyes were on the BHRC as 5 drivers could take the title. Matt Edwards & Hamish Campbell (131 Abarth) were fastest through the opening Friday night test but Matthew Robinson & Sam Collis (Escort MkII) hit back on Saturday and the pair swapped fastest stage times leaving Robinson just under 4 seconds ahead going in to the final stage. A spin and stall in front of our position didn’t help and the best part of 17 seconds were dropped, leaving Robinson victorious by just over 21s. Steve Bannister & Callum Atkinson (Escort MkII) completed the podium but all eyes were behind them as none of the top 3 were either registered or in with a shot of the title. Read More »

It was a day of contrasts in South Wales as the stages were choked with dust first thing and then in the afternoon rain moved in to dampen the dust down and turn the stages slippery. Dylan Davies & Mark Glennerster (Fiesta R5) were the class of the field and took victory by 53s from Russ Thompson & Andy Murphy (Evo IX) but the tight battle was in the Historics. Simon Webster & Jez Rogers (Escort MkII) took a final stage victory from Steve Bennett & Osian Owen (Escort MkII) by 2s after trailing them by a single second after the 5th of the 6 stages. Rudi Lancaster & Guy Weaver (Escort MkII) completed the podium just 21s off the leadin pair. Read More »
