Paul Fobbister finished fourth in scorching conditions less than ten seconds behind over 18 flowing tests tackled by the twenty three entrants. David Mosey returned in his Mini and after a slow start climbed to sixth overall, winning his class. The larger saloon class saw Toby Cook win the class for the first time from dad Dave by just three seconds in their Micra.
