After the first pair of stages Damian Cole & Jamie Edwards (Fiesta WRC) could not be separated from Melvyn Evans & Mark Glennerster (Impreza WRC). Close behind were 2017 Tour of Epynt winners Bob Fowden & Aled Davies (Imprzea WRC), just 4 seconds back. The next pait of stages saw Evans take 11 seconds out of Cole, with Fowden drifting a second further back.

With no MSA Asphalt Championship running in the 2017 the Tour of Epynt saw a smaller entry then usual but no less drama. Damian Cole & Paul Morris (Fiesta WRC) started as car 1 and after the first two loops of stages were tied for the lead with Bob Fowden & Paul Wakely (Impreza WRC). A slight off for Fowden at fourways, on stage 5, looked to hand the advantage to Cole but he retired in the stage leaving Fowden clear for a comfortable victory. In the end fastest time on the final two stages saw a victory margin of 1 minute and 34 seconds. Read More »

tourofepynt16 (8)After a cloudy start the Tour of Epynt was played out under glorious spring sunshine, with tyre choices now all based upon how soft the crews wanted the rubber to be. The top 4 were hard to separate over the opening pair of stages with Steve Simpson & Patrick Walsh (Impreza WRC) taking the lead by 3 seconds from Damian Cole & Paul Morris (Fiesta WRC) tied with Simon Mauger & Jonathan Hawkins (Metro 4M4). The 2nd loop saw Simpson extend his lead as Cole put a few seconds between himself and Mauger. With Simpson having beat the bogey time on stage 4 he then did the same on stage 5 to extend his lead and remained untouchable for the rest of the day, to take victory. Read More »

Steve_Brown_PR2_15_ToEThe debut of new car can sometimes be a troublesome affair, but Rochdale’s Nissan Kit Car pilot Steve Brown guided his all new class B9 Micra to a creditable fourth in class and 59th overall at the Melvyn Evans Motorsport Tour of Epynt Rally last weekend. Thanks mainly to the weather, the opening round of the REIS MSA Ashpalt Rally Championship would provide a tougher than usual start to the season in Wales, but Brown took it all in his stride to finish the rain soaked event with a solid start for his championship campaign.
