The pair had various teething problems throughout the morning, including a broken fuel pipe and no brakes on two stages, but set competitive top-four times in the 1600cc class.

They eventually retired on stage-four with drive shaft failure in Chepstow Park.

The pair will recommence battle in the BTRDA championship on next months Malcolm Wilson Rally in Cumbria.
