Stage 13, Knockarnad, was extremely slippy with lots of shiny tar and several of the top drivers had scary overshooting moments. Worst affected was Kevin Kelleher whose Subaru careered up an escape road and when he hand braked the car round the front bumper got damaged. That took away all the good work of his fastest time through SS12 but he is still a very solid 4th place o/a. Fastest through that stage 13 was Garry Jennings who just concentrated on keeping a steady pace and it paid off. Daragh O1Riordan said. `It was lethal in placed, just like glass`. The Scariff Plant Hire man gave a bit of a sigh and said. `Three more stages, I will probably lose a couple more hairs and I have very few to lose!` Donagh Kelly was another to have a spin and had to reverse and in the midst of it all something came in the window and cracked Donagh above the eye. However, all is well with the Donegal man for the final 3 stages. Owen Murphy and Sam Moffett both had spins in SS13 so Josh Moffett was fastest from Stephen Wright. Stephen is still 100 percent focussed on the Group N Tarmac Champion Crown.

There was no real change in the National Rally through 12 and 13. Phil Collins did produce a fastest time through the short Moll McCarthy stage 12. But it was business as usual through 14 with Roy White quickest and reporting all well with his MG S2000. Roy is going for a conservative tyre choice for the last 3 stages and remarked. `Brother Brennan is doing a great job on the notes!`

In the Junior Rally after SS12 Callum Devine (Citroen C2R”) led from Darren Young (Civic) with Gary McNamee 3rd also in a Civic. In the Historic Rally Mark Falvey continues to lead in the ex Coleman Escort from Denis Moynihan in a similar Mk1 with Aidan O`Connor 3rd.

The excellent West Cork Rally book is on sale here today at Orchard Motorsport. It is a proper collectable item and would make a superb Christmas present. At the Kart race for the top drivers here at the Green Glens complex last night it was Sam Moffett who took the laurels in fine style. Colman Hegarty was CoC and ongoing in the main hall is a brilliant Autotest display. The Banna Beach Rally has a Co-Drive for the Day Draw in place. This is in aid of the Kerry Cancer Support Group and there are tickets on sale here in the service area at the yellow and blue Escort.
