The smallest entry we have witnessed on the ranges but it did not dilute from the battle.

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.
