Almost forgot to keep everyone informed, no real change in what is a stable top 5 at the moment. Steve Wood is looking to be heading to another Wexford stages rally, one of the elite few to to a three in a row. Meirion Evans is making a good show of it in the i20, he took a rather large 5″ out of our rally leader to deny him a clean sweep of fastest stage times for the day. Gary Kiernan is doing his best to stop it being a Welsh top 3. John Dalton and Frank Kelly finish out the top 5.Tomas Davies, Paul Rowley, Richard Moore, Patrick McHugh and Wesley Patterson round out the top 10, Moore having the honours of top local driver for the moment.

Richard Cleary in 11th, Leon Galvin in 12th and James Bradley in 15th make it not bad reading at all for local rally followers.

Results so far as we have them.
