Mini Britannia won again by Hindley & Bull

After eight stages it was Phil Hindley and Andy Bull in their silver Porsche 911 who again stamped their authority on this one-day event; smaller brother of Tour Britannia, the popular race/Rally/Regularity event originated by Alec Poole and his team in 2005. Hindley and Bull won the Competition Category by 52.9 seconds from Stuart Scott and Steven Wood's Chevrolet Camaro a further 9 seconds ahead of the AC Cobra of Mark Freeman and Mike Ellis in third place.

Event scrutineering took place at Battersea Park Power Station in Chelsea on Friday night before competitors headed out through south London and down the A3 to Brooklands on Saturday morning where SS1 and SS2 were held at Mercedes-Benz World. Dunsfold, home of BBc 'Top Gear' followed for SS3 and SS4 and Farnborough Airport was the location of SS5 and SS6. Then followed Laverstoke SS7 and Laverstoke SS8; Jody Scheckter's back garden.

The Regularity Category was won by loyal IRDC members Steve and Tony Graham, who's familar Lancia Fulvia took first place by ten seconds from Angus Watt and Trevor Agnew's Porsche 914, who were only four seconds ahead of the third placed Jaguar E-type of Richard Dresner/Colin MacKenzie. Disappointingly, Mini Britannia had just 25 entries and in July competitors had requested that the organisers changed from a September date to October 5th.
