Team Taylor's Quinton Second

 

Team Taylor's David Pattrick (Sleaford) and Simon Ashton (Sheffield) enjoyed further successes on Saturday when they claimed a fine second in class on the Quinton Stages Rally.

 

The six special stage event was run in hot and dusty conditions in mid Wales with 45 competitive miles on offer for the 125 crews. Team Taylor's Peugeot 106 Rallye performed brilliantly to leave David and Simon third in class at the halfway point. They were soon up to second during an attacking afternoon, aided by a broken clutch cable on their nearest opposition's mount, to claim a fine 64th overall. Only a couple of minor moments slowing their progress!

 

At the front of the field, the battle was as hot as the weather with just over a minute covering the top ten, Gary Smith and Phil Clarke running out as winners in their Escort Cosworth.
