Rally - Summer Stages at Crail

Fancy an early bet for the Beatson's Building Supplies Mull Rally - Mounsey for Mull? Jonathan Mounsey and Richard Wardle won the Summer Stages at a canter in their Ford Fiesta Rally2. John Rintoul and Ross Hynd were 2nd in the MINI while the Lotus Exige of Greg Inglis and Chris Lees was like a gazelle amongst a herd of 4WD heavyweights scoring a scintillating third place overall.

It was grand stuff. Crail was almost in benevolent mood. It was warm at times, and windy and ever so slightly wet, but on the whole quite pleasant, apart from sudden gusts of wind which would blaw yer bunnet across the sea to Holland if ye didnae hing oan.

For some, it was a more eventful and less successful day than others, but Jonathan Mounsey has certainly marked his card for Mull in October. Mull is nothing like Crail of course, but Mounsey's mastery of the Fiesta is certainly evident - and remember, his best result so far on the island is 4th!

'Motorsport News' will not be featuring a report from the event this week, so the full story is here, and only here - and includes a full class class roundup ...
