Despite the near freezing temperatures, spirits remained high amongst the 10 teams competing, taking the sleet, snow and rain in their stride and even remarking how well the adverse conditions suited the Defender 90s they were racing.
After a truly challenging weekend, Edd Cobley secured the top spot navigated by John Tomley in car 12 which leads the competition overall. Edd Cobley commented, “It’s been a great weekend racing, we had a new car, new sponsors and new terrain to work with.
“The car lived up to everything we expected and needed and we got some really quick times. Parts of the course allowed us to push on to 99mph.”
Gareth Curruthers came in second navigated by Wallace McKay in car 18 and Christian Femont and Leon Vanhaesebrouck in car 25 achieved the third place after a tight battle with The Defenderists Dave Harlow and Sara Smith.
