After the previous stage, the crew were 16th Overall and leading the Super 1600 runners by a mere 0.4 seconds from the Peugeot of Justin Dale.
On the first stage they recorded a 2nd fastest in Super 1600, and they were 4th fastest on the second stage. On the third stage, Gwyndaf was stunning with a fastest in class, 21.3 seconds quicker than his next class contender - with an amazing 8th fastest Overall! They were fastest again on the next, before it all finished on the fifth stage.
Another ZR, in the hands of Tony Jardine / Maurice Hamilton was lying in 28th Overall and leading the N3 class after Stage 7 - they are actually also last in class, due to the fact that all the other runners have retired! One of which was the ZR of Rob Stone who retired with a broken driveshaft on Stage 4. He had been leading the class in 36th Overall, following the previous stage.
Tony Jardine was driving the only ZR to finish the International Rally of Wales. Despite what I said in my post above, he actually finished in 27th Overall / 2nd in Class N3, just behind the Renault Clio of Marco Veroni.
I'm sure earlier in the day that Renault was not featured on the results page. Looking now, he is shown as 28th with Jardine 29th!
Well, the main reason I bought my ZR (apart from employee discount) was rallying. I tell you what, it is one hell of a car to post stunning time against such opposition. of course its a development year imagine what they do next year!!!
