Weather very mixed over the weekend which made for tricky driving conditions which in turn lead to a number of accidents and some delays on stages. That said i still enjoyed it, added a few more names to my list of autographs, got a copy of John Buffum's biography from the man himself, bought a few cheap bases from the stalls and marveled at the variety of cars and numbers of famous names from the past. I am keeping an eye out for a photo or video of us on stage 3 on full opposite lock to the left, then the same to the right and then a full 360 followed by a 180 down the middle of a field in the wet !!!  

I am on the lookout for a copy of Sammy Hammils book on the Circuit of Ireland if anyone knows where there might be one.
Stage 3, do you mean the first or the third of Saturday's loop?

First stage ( the new one) on Saturday morning- Kelberger Land. Most of my paperwork is still on its way home with Conor in the Jeep but according to the rally programme it was just above Gelenberg across a section of open farmland - it would have been visible from the spectator point 10 albeit a long way away. The section after the first 90 right was on an unsurfaced farm track which was lethal in the wet.
Edit : Photos just appeared on facebook of us at "Strange" angles to the correct line of travel !!! Razz Razz Razz Razz

Excellent pictures as always Juha and now (oh the shame of it) as an avid Fordie I am going to embarass myself. Is that an RS200 or is it a kit car made to look like an RS200? Something just looks odd from the side profile around the rear haunches of the car?

The RS200's that were there were the "real deal" - kit cars would not be allowed.

Car 40 is/was the Group S "RS200" of ex Ford motorsport man John Wheeler. Was talking to his son who co-drives the car at the event last year and its the only one in existence and very much his pride and joy. I always thought Group S was going to be Group B on acid but the way he explained it was the cars were supposed to run Group A engines to bring the speeds down.
