Steve Bannister and Kevin Rae won the RAC Rally at the weekend by over 4 minutes from Paul Griffiths. Tim Pearcey with our own Neil Shanks had an excellent run into 4th place overall after 23 stages in Yorkshire, Kielder and the Scottish borders. Allan McDowall and Gavin Heseltine went off in SS17 and didn’t finish.
Thomas Heard and Amanda Burney in the Volvo S70 finished 10th in the Clubmans event and since there were no finishers behind them, tenth sounds much better than last! Iain Heard and Alistair Maxwell got as far as SS16 before the MkII conked out.
Richard Crozier who was navigating for Clive Baty in the Renault 5 Alpine finished ninth overall in the Peregrine Print Night Rally with no other finishers behind them. Again, ninth sounds better than last, eh?
