This rally is living up to its dramatic previous stages as we seem to have lost our leader from the previous loop, Gary Kiernan is not showing up on the timesheets as we write this. Steve Wood has reclaimed the lead with a cushion of 26″ over Enda O’Brien, who in turn has a gap of 42″ between himself and Adrian Hetherington. Dare we say that after 80% of the rally, we might be starting to see what the podium might look like, that might be risky given the retirements at the sharp end of the field so far this morning. Kevin Barrett is over two minutes back in 4th with Michael Conlon 39″ further back in 5th. Richard Moore is 31″ further back in 6th with Tomas Davies only 6″ further in arrears in 7th. Graham Scallan is making use of the drop outs in front of him to jump into 9th, but has Wesley patterson breathing down his neck 2″ behind in 10th. Will we see this top 10 in a few stages time at the finish, anyones guess.
