Thanks Juha for the photos and great to meet your Dad.

It was really lovely to meet Chris (Sal) and Louise - real enthusiasts but you would want to be anti-rally not to be impressed by the event. As you can see from the photo we met Chris Patterson and his jaw was on the floor. Even he could not understand why the event was not overrun with UK and Irish rallyfans.

Also great to meet with and chat with Eddie Fitzgerald a member on here - what he calls himself I am too lazy to find out.

Our running number this year gave me a different perspective on the event - we were 16 this year and in the 60's and 70's in previous years. As you all know most rallycars cover the road sections between stages in well under the allocated time so the cars and crews congregate at the stage in controls and we all tend to turn off the cars , get out and have a bit of banter and craic. Cars 1 to 14 were the invited drivers, a Dutch crew in a DAF at 15 and we were 16 so it felt very surreal to be in the company of such an illustrious bunch of people.
While he is not on here nor is anyone connected with him I would still like to thank Conor Falvey for the opportunity of accompanying him and his beautiful car to Eifel and he wasn't shy when it came to pulling the wand to get the tail out and putting on a show where he could. Roll on 2015 and I know Sal and Juha will agree with me when I say beg, borrow or steal the money but get there however you can in 2015.

This years finishers award was a model of a VW Beetle.
