Round 3: 9 June
Rhys Yates has become the first British driver to win the Rally van Wervik, after he and co-driver Elliott Edmondson clinched outright victory on round three of the championship in their Brettex-backed ŠKODA Fabia R5.
Yates’ CA1-Sport stable-mate David Bogie took second place. Despite this being Bogie’s first asphalt event for twelve months, he and co-driver John Rowan were soon into their stride in their Brasswell Developments/Pallet Force Skoda Fabia R5.
Daniel Harper finished third in his Minisport-run John Cooper Works Mini WRC. After three excellent results, Wayne Sisson and Max Freeman now lead the Asphalt Rally Championship in Wayne’s AMS Mitsubishi Evo X having finished fifth.
