Gravel returnee Moffett dominates Lakeland Stages thumbnailJosh Moffett cruised to victory on the Lakeland Stages Rally in his Ford Fiesta R5 courtesy of the fastest times on all six stages

JOSH Moffett and Stephen Thornton mastered the slippery conditions to bring their Ford Fiesta R5 home thirty one seconds clear of Jonny Greer and Kirsty Riddick for victory on the Lakeland Stages.
Moffett, fresh from his exploits on the Barum Rally in Czech Republic as part of the FIA European Rally Championship, enjoyed an incident-free day to head the standings throughout the six stages.
The older of the two Moffett brothers - Sam - was forced to settle for third.
He dropped over half-a-minute on the opening loop of stages as the number one seed performed road-sweeping duties.
“We had a few moments early on but conditions gradually improved as the day wore on," reflected Sam. "OK, we didn't get the win this time but we scored some very important championship points."
