Success in Wales for South Molton racers

Joseph Bulmer

SOUTH Molton racers Graham Roberts and Alan Lock competed again in the national section of the WRC Rally of Wales, which uses the same stages as the World Rally Championship on the second and third day of the four day international event.

Graham and Alan finished third in class and 30th overall out of 85 cars entered, starting at number 74.

Last year the pair finished 35th overall and third in class.

Graham said he never put a wheel wrong in the whole event, apart from a puncture half-way through the Sweet Lamb main spectator stage, when they clipped a stone in the water splash through the river.

They were driving an MG ZR 1600 in the 1400-1600cc class.
