Joseph Bulmer

FOUR crews from North Devon took part in the Exmouth Motor Club Equinox Rally, which was

round two of the 2011 ASWMC Road Rally Championships.

They took on a demanding route of 175 miles and more than 75 Time controls and 68 PCs to pre-plot.

Scott Cleverdon was forced to withdraw with an injured hand.

Paul Prance and Luke Batty in their Ford Escort and Nigel and Nick Angrave in a Peugeot 205 eventually went over time limit, leaving John Bartlett and Derek Drayton to carry the North Devon Motor Club banner.

They finished a creditable 15th in their Renault Megane in what proved to be a long and complex rally.

Round three,The Myotis Rally is on Salisbury Plain on the night of April 30/May 1.
