That gap might have been a lot closer had it not been for a lurid spin on the final stage which wiped the front bumper off the Subaru, but they had enough in hand to ensure that the younger Inglis, Greg, with Ian Parker stayed in 4th place in the Lotus.
John Rintoul and Ross Hynd didn't get far in the MINI, the rear diff grumbling by the end of the first stage with John thinking that it was a legacy of Mull! Lee and Cole Hastings didn't get far either, the Subaru's engine letting go while Chris and Peter McCallum's Scottish Tarmack title bid suffered a blow with diff failure in the Escort.
Des Campbell's pace in the Peugeot was electrifying as he and Craig Forsyth finished 8th equal overall and won Class 2 from Ewan Stanhope and Cameron Dunn in the Corsa who had earlier lost time in stages 1 and 3 with an overshoot and some acrobatics!
Archie Swinscoe and Barry Young won the Junior 1000 event in their Skoda Citigo from the Peugeot 107 of Max Speed and Alan Gilbert with Letisha Conn and Emma Morrison finishing 3rd in the Skoda Citigo.
