Despite needing only to finish the rally to clinch the 2003 Armajaro MSA British Historic Rally Championship title, Steve Perez and Jonty Bolsover really attacked on the Bulldog Rally to win the crown in style in their Porsche 911. The pair took a commanding victory in the historic section of the Welsh forest event to put the seal on a superb year.
A Porsche also claimed the post-historic spoils as Richard Tuthill broke a two-year lay-off from the sport to dominate the event. Partnered by Kevin Plunkett in the car normally handled by Stuart Rok, they even had time to stop on the Dyfi stage and attend to a detached throttle cable on their way to winning by 90sec. Leading the chase of Tuthill were brothers David and Andy Stokes in their Escort.
The post-historic championship spoils went to Richard Hill and Stephen Montoto in their Escort.
