Round 5: Severn Valley Stages, 30 May

Bob Ceen and co-driver Andy Bull stamped their authority on the fast twisty roads in Crychan and Halfway forests to record their first win of the year on the Severn Valley Stages.

The Subaru Impreza WRC crew dominated the morning stages, returning to service at the Royal Welsh Showground with a comfortable margin before consolidating their position on the afternoon tests.

Luke Francis and John Roberts took seven second-fastest times to finish second overall. Meanwhile Dylan Davies and Llion Williams celebrated their first podium finish, despite suffering from an overheating engine and excessive tyre wear.
