In a tight battle in which there was never more than a few seconds between the leading contenders, Tom Cave / Dale Bowen took victory on the Pirelli International Rally giving Cave back to back maximum British Championship points and what must have been a very sweet victory at his 9th attempt at the event. The Hyundai driver was pushed all way by Rhys Yates / James Morgan and there was a late charge from Finnish stars Jari Huttunen / Anti Linnaketo in the second Hyundai i20.
Huttunen / Linnaketo were quickest out of the blocks, narrowly shading Cave, Yates and David Bogie / John Rowan (Skoda Fabia) Alex Laffey lost some 5 minutes but his problems were slight compared to those of the Fiestas of Ruari Bell / Daren Garrod and Bart Lang / Sinclair Young both of whom made an early exit when they slid off the road. Cave leapt into the lead on the second stage while Matt Edwards / Patrick Walsh (Ford Fiesta) surged up to 2nd close behind him. This long 14-mile stage saw the demise of both Mat Smith/ Giles Dykes and Steve Petch/John Richardson (Fiesta S2000) when they both left the road, happily without injury.Read More
