Following his fastest time through stage 9 Darragh O’Riordan was quickest again through stage 10, Mushera. He was 4s up on Tim McNulty and then the next fastest was Garry Jennings a further 21s back. At the Service In Control Darragh said. “We’re not going too bad. We had a bit of a moment at a hairpin right otherwise OK”. Tim McNulty reported a high speed spin on a medium right corner and went on to say. “The rally is not over yet, I’ll have one more cut”. In Tarmac Championship terms Tim can afford to finish 3rd and still take the title.

Garry Jennings continues to lead group N as well as lying 2nd o/a and having led the rally overnight he commented. “The World Rally Cars are wiping us now. We’ll just hang in there and concentrate on staying ahead of Alan Ring”. At stake for Garry is the Group N Tarmac Championship Title. For his part Alan Ring said. “I’m taking no chances in the fog, just concentrating on getting the car home”. Kevin Barrett is also in contention for the overall Tarmac Championship crown but following a good time in stage 9 Kevin dropped a few seconds in stage 10 and he said. “The fog was quite bad towards the end of the stage and I didn’t take any chances”. On an earlier RallyNews we mentioned that Brian O’Mahony was up to 5th o/a but his Subaru was parked on a road section. There is no sign of Brian or the Impreza here at service yet.

David Carney has reinforced his position at the top of the Citroen Racing Trophy contenders. His nearest challenger this morning was Kieran Daly but he slid his C2R2 off the road at a hairpin, the 2 front wheels got stuck in a ditch and he lost 3m. This means that Graeme Colfer is now 2nd best Citroen Racing Trophy challenger with Peter Barrable 3rd in 11th o/a and Joe McGonigle 4th in 12th place.

In the National Rally David Armstrong led overnight but said he fell asleep in SS9 that allowed Jason Ryan in his Civic to forge through into the lead. Armstrong was fastest in SS10 and is just over 7s behind Ryan. The latter driver reported some brake fade on his Civic towards the end of those 2 long stages but otherwise going well. In the Historic Rally Denis & Dan Moynihan in their Mk1 Escort were fastest through SS10 by 1m26s from Alan Courtney/Paul Soutar in the Porsche 928. Moynihan now leads Courtney by a stunning 9m44s. Thomas & Colin O’Brien are 3rd Historic in their Mini.
