Caerwent Car-nage!!!

By Uncategorised

It was a day of attrition for Rally Challenge crews at Caerwent with two thirds of contenders not surviving to the finish.  With Mark Jasper a non-starter in his Metro 6R4, top seeded contender Thomas Cooper impressed all day and was on the pace straight away in his Mitsubishi Evo 9. He held second place for 5 of the 6 stages until the diff let go. His Grandad Phil Turner had no better luck in the Skoda Fabia with a snapped engine mounting. Leighton Escott, has once again climbed to the top of the Driver’s standings but with family commitments when the last sealed surface Round, the Harlech Stages takes place, and not competing on the gravel rounds, he has to wait and see if he will clinch the overall title. Cruel luck befell Andrew and Hollie Norris when on the last stage a wishbone snapped on the BMW Compact. Co-sponsor of the event Matthew Curzon with Ceri Simpson suffered a dropped valve in their Ford Escort to also join the long list of retirements and a self-destructing alternator put paid to a good potential result for Russell Davies in the Darrian T90.
