Victory for WDMC Club members at Three Sisters

Another excellent result came from Greg Williams and Richard Edwards also in a Williams Haulage Subaru Imprezza finishing 4th overall and 3rd in class
Jonny Kennedy navigating for Dave Roberts in another Imprezza came home in the top ten with 8th overall.
Steve Ellison & Sophie Landen in the Buildbase Escort finished just outside the top ten. No mean feat for a 2wd car.

Craig & Marcus Kennedy overcame a major oil leak in their first outing with the 1400cc Vauxhall Corsa to finish 44th overall

WARRINGTON CREWS TACKLE WALES RALLY GB NATIONAL EVENT
Matthew Steadman & Stephen Landen went out in the icon of RAC Rallies, The Lancia Delta Intergrale. After extensive test over the summer the team set out from Llandudno on the route following the World Rally championship cars. A steady run in typical Rally GB conditions saw them arrive back after the first day gaining in confidence in the car and the stages.
Saturday was typically wet with the crews heading towards mid Wales around classic stages such as Myherin, Dyfi & Sweet Lamb. Sadly a seal in clutch assembly gave way in the Myherin stage forcing them into retirement.
However undeterred, they plan to be back on the event in 2020
In addition, Andy Williams & Andrew Darlington were out in the Subaru Imprezza and were going very well but retired during the last day with mechanical issues
