Tony Bell was dominant in round one with a maximum of 24 points. Racer Derek Jobb was Bell’s main challenge throughout the day. Jobb, the winner of the opening round of the Irish Rallycross Championship, suffered a setback in the first round of heats when he tore off the front right corner of his Ford Escort RS2000. Jobb made it back to the action for the second round of heats.

At the start of the A final, Tony Bell shot off into the lead from pole position ahead of Jobb, Chris Langley and Mad Mark. Bell was able to build a lead that he would maintain to the finish to win the opening round of the championship and the English Rallycross Masters Title.
