Rob Snowden is the 2017 AS Performance North of England Tarmacadam Champion.  On today’s Cheviot Stages Rally, run in memory of Keith Knox, Rob drove at a steady, controlled pace to bring home his Ford Escort MkII in 12th overall and take second best championship points.  But more importantly, his closest rival for the title Stevie Irwin, finished right behind him and on the dropped scores rule loses out.  

 

It’s been a close championship for most of the year and It’s always good to see a new name of the top awards.  Unfortunately for every man’s success, there’s other men’s what might have been if only and sometimes men’s failures …

 

Along with congratulations to Rob, we can also include his co-driver Andy Brown too.  The Scratman was in a more comfortable position than his fellow co-drivers at the start of this morning with a decent points difference at the top of his section and it’s good to see a local man win this championship too.

 

A more detailed report will follow …
