Tight battle between the local crews

Another close battle commenced between a number of Powys crews on the Event Signs Woodpecker Stages in Knighton last weekend.

Lennox/ Evans set the early pace on Stage 1 going 1 second quicker than Wood/ Davies and 2 seconds quicker than Crone/ James. But brake issues for Lennox on Stage 2 saw him loose a big chunk of time and drop halfway down the B11 class standings. Crone had a great run through stage 2 and was able to propel himself up to the class lead taking 12 seconds off Wood. Jones/ Griffiths were able to promote themselves to 3rd B11 in their Mk2 Escort.

Clean runs through Stage 3 saw the three crews set very close times once again on Ednol Hill 2. Crone was able to go fastest taking 3 seconds out of Lennox and 4 seconds off Wood. At this point the class standings were 1st Crone/ James (Total Time 00:23:28), 2nd Wood/ Davies (Total Time 00:23:43), 3rd Jones/ Griffiths (Total Time 00:24:31) and 4th Lennox/ Evans (Total Time 00:23:28).

Stage 4 (Cwm Y Gerwyn 2) saw Wood/ Davies pick up a puncture early on and were forced to change it mid stage costing around 3 minutes. Lennox/ Evans had a fantastic run through this stage and were able to take 38 seconds off Crone/ James and 41 seconds out of Jones/ Griffiths.

After a midday service the crews headed out to the final stage of the day (Stanlo Trump). All crews had a clean run, Lennox/ Evans were on a big charge to try and take the class win and went fastest taking 10 seconds out of Wood/ Davies and 22 seconds off Crone/ James. Despite this Crone was able to hold onto the class win by 14 seconds (Final B11 standings below).

Final results: 

Crone/ James (1st Pirelli Welsh Championship Road Rally Class, 1st B11 event class and 41st O/A) 

Lennox/ Evans (2nd Pirelli Welsh Championship Road Rally Class, 2nd B11 Event Class and 42nd O/A)

Wood / Davies (3rd Pirelli Welsh Championship Road Rally Class, 5th B11 event class and 56th O/A) 

Well done Robi and Osian.
