Brecon Motor Club and other local crews have been busy over the last 2 weeks with varying degrees of success. Brecon driver Sara Williams was out and about on the Somerset Stages in here Subaru and finished 16th overall while Yan Griffiths co-drove for Chris Wheeler in his Fiesta and recorded a finish.
Bob Gibbons and Malcolm Rich resumed their B3 battle in the BHRC at the Pirelli Rally in Cumbria and both grabbed a haul of points. The result took a twist on stage one when Rich and co-driver Jon Hawkins slid off the road for 2 minutes. Thereafter it was a game of catch up and despite taking chunks of time from Gibbons and son Dale it was not to be. Gibbons now has the upper hand in the battle with one more score which will make the Severn Valley Stages at the end of May very interesting.
Jason Pritchard was hoping for a good run to boost his championship lead but clutch failure intervened leading to retirement. Look out for Jason on the Manx National next where he is seeded at number 1 and will be looking to notch up another win in the Focus. Jon Hawkins might have something to say about that though as he has now taken the vacant seat in Simon Maugers Tour of Epynt winning Metro.
Jonathon Davies and son Tom were out at MIRA in their Darrian and they certainly didn't disgrace themselves with eleventh overall. The Cathedine duo have been steadily improving and it won't be long before they are heading further up the leaderboard.
Yan Griffiths was also out on the Montberg with Sean bannister in a Citroen C2 and finished 25th.
