Rali Cwm Gwendraeth 2009 – Live Report

8 February 2009 2 Comments

Stage 2

Just as stage 2 got under way the weather threw down the gauntlet in the form of a wiper testing downpour, the crews newly blooded in stage one’s slippery conditions faced another challenge and the spectators shrugged and braved the rain to enjoy more classic (see sideways) rally action.

Stage 1

With the sky promising thawing conditions stage one got under way at 10???? with Peter Lloyd first away in his recently acquired Subaru Impreza WRC S12, Graham Handley along side to guide Lloyd around a slippery Pembrey. Following Lloyd to the start line fresh from recent success here at Pembrey were Robert & Laura Tout looking to repeat their result on Carmarthen Motor Club’s WWRS Christmas Stages.

Club members Bryan Davies & Alun Lewis found out just how slippery conditions were at the secon corner, Brooklands. With a boot full of the loud pedal in a hail of turf he managed to hang on  to the wayward Mitisubushi Evo 6 most recently piloted on the christmas stages by Bryan’s father and Rali Cwm Gwendraeth C0-CoC Mel Davies in similar style, they both dislike looking out of the windscreen it seems

Start Delayed

The first stage of Rali Cwm Gwendraeth 2009 was delayed to allow all crews to inspect the route and gain forwarning of any potentially dangerous ice during a convoy run at a very chilly pembrey.
