Once again we temper the results we show below with a mixture of what we can make out from talking to the crews here in service with what Leo & Andy are giving on the live feed from stage end of SS3 & 4. James Stafford is showing on the times as 7’55” for SS4, he thinks 13″ quicker and Josh Moffett is showing as 8’16”, he thinks that is wrong by 30″ as he had a 7’46”. Take this into consideration, and if Meirion Evans time is correct as is showing and try do the maths, we think (an we’ll reiterate think) that Moffett is leading by 30″ from Stafford, who is we think about 3″ ahead of Enda O’Brien, with Evans in 4th. When the time cards are taken to the timing office for verification, this hopefully will sort out the wheat from the chaff and give us a more accurate picture. I does suffice to say though that Stafford drove the living daylights out of the Darrian and if he doesn’t retain his crown, he ain’t going down without a fight. Craig Breen has come out with some of the best quotes of the day at the end of SS4, one being “I’m b)*&^%┬úd” and the other is “I hardly broke sweat in three days in Finland but I’m shattered by four stages in the back arse of Wexford, total respect to the lads that drove these cars 30 years ago” Great to see someone of that stature doing the Wexford rally with the main aim to enjoy himself competing against all the new stuff.
