Reigning BTRDA Gold Star champion Josh Veale had his best result since winning Gold with second overall winning the red live axle class having dropped a five on a section twenty percent of the entry climbed through.
John Fack drove the wrong way through a seven post on the first round of sunshine baked hills ending any hope but salvaged the final step of the podium. In addition to Kingsley, Richard Sharp finished fourth to maintain second in the MSA, while Roland Uglow’s fifth improved his score taking him to the brink of a third British title with one round to run in two weeks.
Paul Price, Jerome Fack, Ian Veale, Boyd Webster and Roger Bricknell completed the top ten overall covered by just three points.
In twelfth overall Martin Grimwood won the Blue independent class from John Cole, and Ian Fullwood won the blue live axle class.
Sandy Veale won the Rookie class just outside the top twenty overall, beating former asphalt rally star’s Darren and Sue Underwood who competed for the second time.
Jeff Armistead won the clubman class and had a fabulous day which would have netted him sixth overall in the national field.
