After 150 miles of East Yorkshire roads, Tom and Sam Spencer were victorious kin the 42 running of the Maple Garage Beaver Rally
To quote Sam “After 10 years of trying and over 100 events I’ve finally done it, a road rally win on last nights’ Beaver. The event was top class plot and bash rallying so a huge thanks to Mike, Ian, Matthew and everyone at BDMC for organising the event. The Beaver was the second rally Tom and I ever did back in 2009 and we finished second to last but last night everything came together for once. To get my maiden win alongside my older brother in a car I bought when I was 16 is something very special that I’ll never forget so thanks to Tom for making a childhood dream come true.”
21 of the original 25 starters finished the event.
Carl Hawkins and Ian Tullie were second overall 1 minute and 18 seconds behind the leader. Third went to Bevan Blacker and Niall Frost.
The first 3 on the event were entered as a team in the Inter Association Challenge meaning that the cup returns to the ANCC.
1st expert went to Clint Eade and Sam Collis whilst the semi expert award went to Steve Mitchell and Ian Mitchell. The final class award for novice crews went to John and Rodger Cunningham.
The all lady or mixed crew was taken by Sam Featherstone and Sasha Heriot who broke the 6 year winning streak of David and Yvonne Wainwright who had to cut the last part of the route.
All crews had endured fog in the early part of the event as well as intermittent rain.
Our thanks go to the marshals who braved these conditions.
