Pritchard wins record-equalling fifth Manx National Rally

Five wins in six years for Pritchard and Clarke

Jason Pritchard and Phil Clarke have won their fifth Manx National Rally in six years, after an event they dominated from the outset.

The victory sees them equal a record held by Kenny McKinstry and Noel Orr, who won five rallies on the Island between 1999 and 2007.

Over 16 stages - which included the Cronk, Keristal and Balladhoole - Welshman Pritchard and his co-driver were a class apart from the rest.

Jamie Jukes and James Morgan were closest to challenging the winners, but they were still more than three minutes down in their Mitsubishi Mirage, who appear to have ended their Manx hoodoo after a number of unfortunate incidents on Manx soil.

Rounding off the top three were local pair Andrew Dudgeon and Joseph Dooley, as their Mistubishi Lancer earned a podium finish to cap off a great weekend in the sunshine.

Following the win, Pritchard told Chris Boyde he loves coming to the Isle of Man to compete:
