Points after Round 10, The Raintite Coated Metal Curzon Wealth Management Patriot Stages,
Including Nominated Overseas Rounds.

Richard Merriman and Kath Curzon

Stuart and Theresa Fossey

Will Mains

Sara Williams and Patrick Walsh

A hard fought run at Caerwent in the Roof Hub / Touchline sponsored Darrian T90 landed Richard Merriman and Kath Curzon a fifth overall position and Class honours. The crew, who also won the Best Mixed Crew Award can now potentially achieve 2nd and 3rd respectively in the Championship if they repeat their success in Pembrey on the Fairfield Merlin Stages on October 21st.

Stuart and Theresa Fossey had a fraught time in their Escort Mk.2 when the throttle jammed open on the 2nd Stage. They nursed the car back to service and contested Stage 3 but with the chance of success now diminished they decided to save the car for their forthcoming attempt at the Jersey Rally.

Reigning FMP Champ Will Mains had a tough day with a tyre deflating literally as he left the start line of Stage 4 whilst in a one and a half minute Class lead. The wheel was changed only for the car to fail to start causing them to take a Stage maximum time. A blocked breather was the issue and with the fuel cap slackened it was a game of catch up for the rest of the day. Will, with Aled Edwards, eventually bringing the Nova home 4th in their class. With the final gravel round cancelled and the received entry list not yet available it remains to be seen whether any of the gravel crews will be tempted to Pembrey for the final round to fight Will and Paul Wakely for overall Championship victory.

Away from the Challenge, Brecon FMP Contenders Sara Williams and Patrick Walsh competed on the Rallye Cour de France at the weekend. Sara set her first ever fastest stage time, taking 4th in the Renault Sport Series and 16th overall in the main event. The crew have already nominated their overseas round so did not claim points on this occasion.

Regular Challenge contender Ian Taylor teamed up with Brecon Motor Club’s Craig Jones Evo 9 taking sixth and earning Ian 3rd in Class Points.
