The smallest entry we have witnessed on the ranges but it did not dilute from the battle. Ken Pugh & Ian Jones (Evo III) won out in the end by only 3 seconds from the hard charging Escort MkII of Will Rowlands & Nath Williams.

Expected front runner and no.1 seeds Gwyn Thomas & Peter Williams endured a torrid day crashing on stage 3 and losing a lot of front end bodywork from their Puma before crashing again on stage 6 and retiring from the event.

Ken Pugh & Gwawr Hughes (Lancer Evo III) were protecting a long unbeaten run and took an early lead over the Puma 4WD of Gwyn Thomas & Paul Hughes. During the second loop of stages Thomas took 9 seconds out of Pugh to lead by 6 seconds going into the final loop. Then courtesy of an overshoot on stage 9 Pugh lost another 11 seconds in just one stage.
