Munden masters Midsummer Caerwent
Subaru Impreza crew Jim Munden and Jon Leigh took victory on the Acorn Travel Midsummer Caerwent rally organised by Forresters Car Club on Sunday 10th June held in the demanding Caerwent training complex. Eventually going on to win by 1 minute 8 seconds after the six special stages the Bristol based crew were challenged hard early on by the Darrian T90 GTR of David Morgan/Richard Suter who trailed Munden/Leigh by a solitary second after 2 stages before a costly spin dropped them to fourth overall after stage 4 moving the 2-litre Nissan Micra ‘Kit Car’ of Marcus Pagett/Rhys Stoneman and the Mk2 Escort of Llyr Jones/Theresa Fossey up into the podium positions although the order would change again on the final two stages with the Jones/Fossey Escort first to go out with a loss of oil and then on the final stage a battery problem put out the Pagett/Stoneman Micra from second overall promoting the Morgan/Suter Darrian back up to second with the Nissan Sunny F2 ‘Kit Car’ of Carl O’Grady/Sophie King moving up to third 2 minutes 43 second down on Munden/Leigh although this was still a commendable result as O’Grady’s navigator suffered from motion sickness all day!
