Mark Higgins and Rory Kennedy took victory on the Ulster International Rally last weekend, moving them into the lead of the Tesco 99 Octane MSA British Rally Championship.

Their second victory of the season puts them just a few points ahead of their team-mate, Wyn Humphreys, in the similar Stobart TEG Sport Impreza.

“We need as many wins as possible,” said Higgins at the finish, “because the Championship allows two dropped scores at the end of the season and Guy (Wilks) is still ahead if you take that into account now.”

Second, after Wilks retired from the lead with transmission failure, was his Mitsubishi Motors UK team-mate Gwyndaf Evans. His second consecutive runner-up spot moves him ahead of Wilks, but there are just three points separating third to fifth places.

Philip Morrow returned to the series with his Evo Challenge assault and managed a fine third place, his second of the year. His accomplishment was also rewarded with the Pirelli Star Driver award. This will add him to the list of finalists at the end of season shoot-out for a drive in the 2008 Tesco 99 Octane MSA British Rally Championship.

Conrad Rautenbach took fourth and the Rally 3 win in his Citroen C2 S1600, while Rob Swann’s fifth place moved him into a fine third in the BRC points table. Wyn Humphreys meanwhile, had a fraught event, losing gears in his Stobart TEG Sport Subaru. He managed sixth, dropping him behind Higgins but still thirteen points clear of Swann.
