Pendragon Stages - Warcop - 26th August 2018

22 Contenders 7 retirements on a very slippy Warcop Ranges, Car 1 was our 2018 championship leader Gordon Morrison and Co Driver Callum Macpherson in their Subaru Impreza, they were being pushed by our 2017 Championship winner Rob Snowden and his new co driver Mark Fisher in their Mk2 Escort, as the day started Snowden put up joint fastest stage time and then it was a bit back and forth due to the weather rain and not so much rain etc, a wrong tyre choice by Snowden on stage to put him back in fourth place whilst Morrison was sitting 3rd behind the wrc cars, a big battle was brewing as these 2 were on a different rally of their own and see the 2 going for it all afternoon, the brave 2 finished the day with Morrison winning the event outright and Snowden in 2nd, Stevie Irwin was having a blistering day with Ian Middleton co driving through the slippy ranges surface, with him saying the wetter it was the faster they were going, due to a gearbox mount breaking and driveshaft giving up they retired the car, and that was a blow for this crew as both used their joker on this round, with Barry Lindsay having his run of bad luck on the very first stage, he broke a driveshaft and with a speedy service was back out and finished in a respectable position and using his joker is only 1 point behind Irvin in the championship. But this has opened the door for the crew in the Citroen C2R2 of Michael Harbour and Ian Macdougall who has moved up to 3rd overall in the championship, they finished 13th o/a. Stephen Bethwaite and Ann Forster in their Nova lead the class from start to finish by over a minute and now they have got top points and finishing 18th o/a, class 3 Hillman Avenger pairing Kenny Moore and Richard Wardle played their Joker and a wise choice that was, they won the class and finished a very good 11th O/A, The main results and standings are on results, please look back when the final event will be .
