Nick Pollitt won the latest round of the Demon Tweeks BTRDA AutoSolo challenge after initially trailing Paul Fobister who broke an engine mounting, leaving Sam Williams to take maximum points for the third successive round. Williams had a tremendous daylong battle with Kevin Hardwick eventually winning by under a second. Mike Sones was another to put a late charge in to beat Steve Stringer by less than a second also. Deisel power beat Impreza STI power by a sleader three seconds in class C with a spirited drive by John North. Andy Lewin expertly drove his Escort Mk2 with great precision to take second overall behind Pollitt.

 

Star drive went to Charlie Golding in her first ever event taking an excellent fourteenth overall and the ladies award comfortably. She finished a slender three seconds behind a top ten result.
