2001


2001 winners - Steve Webster / Roger Hage.

The Preston Rally - 8th/9th December 2001

This year's event was won by Steve Webster/Roger Hage in an Impreza.

A possible Subaru top-three was denied by the Peugeot 205 GTi of Andy Baker/Lee Burgess and the Toyota Corolla of Martin Smith/Matthew Fowle. Are you sure you need that 4x4?

Amazingly, all four team entries finished the event - with the Watling and Knutsford Mud Wrestlers just beating Olympic by one place.
