THE Rainworth Skoda Dukeries Rally has been won by Hugh Hunter and co-driver Andy Marchbank who now add their names to those already appearing on the illustrious list of former victors built up during the event’s 53-year history!

The crew led from start to finish in their Ford Focus WRC but were pushed hard all day by the Subaru Impreza WRC of eventual runners-up Roger Chilman/Bryan Thomas from Herefordshire.

After 38 miles of special stages in the East Midlands forests, the winning margin was only 38 seconds, but was nevertheless a good result for both crews who are each chasing points in the REIS – Get Connected BTRDA Rally Series, of which the Dukeries was the fifth round.

Photographer Paul Horton, of Paul Horton Photography, captured these images of the rally.
