The leading cars have just left service and are just starting SS1 in Clohamon. James Stafford d will be trying to become the first Irish winner since 2013, ironically he was that last Irish winner. He seemed in relaxed yet focused mind as he made his way out, hoping the stages will stay dry. It is dry here in service and from what we hear, dry also that bit north of us on the loop of stages. Gary Kiernan will want to keep tabs on the top seed as will Mike Quinn in the leading 4WD. Can another local in the shape of Richie Moore get on the podium by rally end tomorrow afternoon, we will have to see. Until then, HOLD ON TO YOUR HATS BOYS!!
