Experienced rally driver Richard ' Milo' James and navigator Sasha Heriot were the highest placed TVMC crew in the E Roberts (Ffestiniog) Memorial Rali Meirion held in Porthmadog over the weekend. The determined crew were quick and they finished the rally in eigth position overall.

' It was okay, but terrible fog so we took it carefully and completed it. We were in seventh position unti the organisers scrapped section five and we were knocked to eigth. I'm happy enough though as the roads didn't read as the map and I drove blind most of the night,' explained Richard who is car number one in the Bro Tysul Rally, Llandysul to be held in a few weeks time.

Dai Roberts and Andrew Edwards finished in 12th position and hot on their heels were Alan Parry and Russell Williams in their Ford Escort finishing in13th. Ken Jones and Dilwyn John finished in 23rd and Rhys McLoughlin and Andrew Rees completed the rally in 26th position.

Car number two, Meirion Evans and Iwan Jones finished the rally unexpectedly way down the line having ending up in a deep trench. ' We just couldn't get the car out' explained a disappointed Meirion. Llyr Williams and Ceri Hughes were non finishers in car number six having also entered a similar trench.
