Jason Pritchard and Phil Clarke won the Manx National Rally in their Ford Focus WRC at the weekend after what was a dramatic finish to the 14-stage, two-day event.

Gunning for a fourth win, Cumbrian Paul Bird had led the rally from the outset with co-driver Aled Davies, but they crashed out heavily on the Brandywell on Saturday morning leaving Pritchard and Clarke to win by a margin of 42 seconds from Ollie Mellors and Ian Windress in the Millington-engined Proton Satria.

Kirk Michael’s Rob Fagg co-drove Arron Newby to fifth, while the leading all-local crew were Steve Colley and Andrew Cowley in seventh.
