*JASON PRITCHARD CONFIRMED AS BRITISH HISTORIC RALLY CHAMPION*

 

Brecon Motor Club crews faired very well on the whole on the Manx Rally, the event was split into two for points scoring and for the overall title Jason Pritchard finished both days with a good haul of points eventually finishing the historic rally in 4th place overall. 

Bob Gibbons' crossflow powered Cortina had the legs on Malcolm Rich's pre crossflow powered Anglia but in the first half Bob picked up two jump start penalties which dropped him and son Dale behind. On Saturday Bob avoided any issues like that to pull away but both crews still finished behind the powerful Porsche's of Dessie Nutt and Rikki Proffitt. 

Dai 'Block' Jones and Glyn Price were looking good for their usual textbook finish but were seen parked up a bank just 2 miles from the end of the final special stage. That's rallying............................
