James Stafford;s charge to try catch Mark Straker has come to an abrupt end as he tried a bit of on stage gardening with the nose of the Darrian. This also caused the bulk of the cars immiadiatly after him to have slow stage times as the stage was blocked and the time taking to clear the car from the stage. This will have quite an effect on the top 10, so wait and see how this pans out as to how things will look going into the last three stages of the day. You would have to say the big winner in this accident is Mark Straker who had all this happen behind him and for now has a margain of 3’47”, too much even for our time travelling drivers we eluded to in the previous report.
