                On Sunday the 26th of May Llandysul motor cub held their very popular targa rally, the Classic tracks, a rally made up of farm yards and cattle tracks that made up a series of tests for competitors to compete on. Being a local and popular event it’s of no surprise that many Lampeter members entered, with the first members being James Davies who were seeded at car 5 in his Proton Compact GTI. He would have Marc Mayes navigating for him, they have had excellent results on this rally in the past and would be out to again push for a strong result. Next among club members at 8 was Cadog Davies who for this event would be in the driver’s seat in his Proton Satria GTI, he would again have Michael Jones navigating for him this year. On last year’s event Caodg and Michael were both lying in second overall until the car broke so this year, they were hoping to get all the way to the finish in a strong position. At 15 was Daniel Williams in his BMW 318Ti, he would have Jamie Wilson on navigating duties and were another crew with the potential for a strong result. Tim Evans and Dafydd Evans were next at 19 in a Peugeot 206 GTI followed at 20 by Carwyn Davies at 20 in a Nissan Micra, he had Barry Jones navigating for him.
