Andy Davies And Michael Gilbey Achieve A Long-Standing Ambition To Become Welsh Road Rally Champions

Andy Davies is the new 2018 Welsh Road Rally Champion, having clinched the title on the penultimate round of the series, the recent Powys Lanes Rally, in his Subaru Impreza. It’s a title Davies, who lives in the village of Cribyn, near Lampeter, has wanted ever since he took up rallying, with plans for a proper attempt at the series hatched over a coffee with his Betws Bledrws-based navigator Michael Gilbey. The season began with the Dovey Valley Motor Club-organised Rali Mike Darowen (3-4 February). Gilbey won the slippery event navigating for Kevin Davies in a Ford Escort, while Davies started what was to be a title-winning season with a solid seventh, and scoring 93 points out a possible 100, co-driven on this occasion by Cadog Davies.
