For the third year in a row, Welsh visitor Steve Wood and his Limerick co-driver Keith Moriarty in their Subaru Impreza were the winners of the Wexford Volkswagen Stages Rally, taking the lead on Saturday’s opening stage and holding that position all through the two days to score a 42 second victory over the Hyundai i20 of Welsh-English pairing Meirion Evans and Jonathan Jackson.
Taking advantage of the short sea crossing, the all-Welsh crew of John Dalton and Gwynfor Jones completed the top three positions in their Darrian T90, the highest placed two wheel drive car. Cavan’s Gary Kiernan held third place for most of Saturday, but was forced to retire his Escort, leaving Frank Kelly from Dungannon as the highest Irish driver in fourth position, ahead of local Wexford pairing Richard Moore and Brian Halligan.
