Rally pair earn third place finish

LAST weekend saw Bolton-le-Sands based Jon Wood and Ali Proctor finish third overall and first in class on the Ilkley Jubilee Historic Rally for pre-75 cars.

Wood, in his Mini Cooper, was only 57 seconds behind winners Howard Warren and Guy Woodcock in their Porsche 911.

The event was a round of the National HRCR Clubmans Championship, the regional ANWCC Historic Championship and the local NESCRO Summer Series.

* THIS year’s Stobart Rail Pendragon Stages have changed date due to army commitments and will take place on Sunday, May 22.

Another change, due to the agricultural calendar on Lowther Park, means the event will use only 55 miles on Warcop with no road mileage.

Entries opened last week so contenders should register their intention to contest the event, as with no need for the competing cars to use the public highway, the event has become a single venue and as it already has a reputation for providing excellent competition, has a large following throughout the North of England.
