Enda O’Brien still seems to be setting the times alight out on the stages with another fastest time on SS4 and now has a 12″ advantage over Steve Wood, who in turn has 11″ advantage over Paddy McVeigh. The gaps seem to be wider as we look further down the top 10, this seems to be helped by a a very slow stage time by David Condell, he is around 8 minutes off the pace on this stage, a puncture or a bit of automotive gardening we wonder. As soon as we¬† find the reason, we will hope to enlighten you. Gary Kiernan is 7″ behind McVeigh with Adrian Hetherington being a further 5″ adrift in 5th. Kevin Barrett is 47″ behind, but there is a chasing group of two cars of Wesley Patterson and Michael Conlon who are only 1″ and 3″ in arrears of Patterson in that order. Tomas Davies is only 6″ further back, with Richard Moore only another 12″ back in 10th. There is a battle Royale building behind to get into that coveted top 10 with Graham Scallan Patrich McHugh and Simon Reid only a few seconds behind and making a good effort to make the top 10.
