FINCH claims the spoils as Proctor gets stumped…!
Steve Finch and Sam Fordham were never headed as their Ford Fiesta R5 took a 21sec victory over Scott Renshaw and Emma Morrison’s Impreza on the 2021 Rex Pet Hotel Flying Fortress Stages. The event attracted a full entry of 70 cars which included 19 Dukeries MC crews and 4 Land Rover Defenders of the UK Armed Forces Rally Team.
There was 1st stage drama when last year’s winners and top seeds Kevin Proctor / Patrick Walsh (Fiesta S2000T) slid wide and hit a tree stump breaking a wheel and damaging a drive shaft, taking a stage maximum. They managed to repair the damage and re-joined the event taking 3 fastest stage times before a failed alternator finally put them out for good.
