Round 2: Mid Wales Stages, 2 March
Alex Allingham and co-driver Chris Williams won the Mid Wales Stages by almost half a minute from Dan Humphreys and Ian Pryce.
It was the perfect start to the winning pair’s championship campaign, since they missed the season-opening Wyedean Rally. However the win was not without drama, as they suffered brake problems on the Myherin stage.
Also starting their season on the second round were Dan Humphreys and Ian Pryce, who were pleased to finish second after a cautious start in the morning. Worcester crew Paul Davy and Roger Allen took the final podium place and the lead in the championship despite a spin on the second stage.
