Brecon Motor Club members were out and about yesterday competing and marshalling. In mid Wales Dai 'Block' Jones and Glyn Price were hoping to get the better of a fast learning Craig Jones. Both were out in the same class in their respective BMWs and what a day it turned out to be! Craig took the advantage early on but on stage 4 a front strut popped up through the mounting and despite the service crews best efforts it could not be fixed. Driving a quickly as he dared over the final three stages Craig battled to the end to find that they had lost second in class to another rival by 2 seconds and had exactly the same penalty as Dai & Glyn. A faster time on the first stage gave Craig the advantage and third in class. Back to the workshop now.....................

Ecurie Cymraeg organised another cracking Leukemia Rally and various BMC people were assisting. Dave McIntyre and his good wife manned a number of main controls, James Chappelle and Liam Griffiths piloted the course car until a lack of brakes curtailed their day, Chris and Gethyn Phillips and their respective good ladies Jane and Emma were manning regularity controls, Roger Simons was controlling traffic and Martin Leonard, Bob Gibbons and his partner Gill covered two special test finish controls. A great day was had by all and a few photos from the event are below.
