    The performance advantage of the skodas over all the other s2000 cars should not be underestimated. They are visibly faster!

    Have to agree with this totally. I really enjoyed watching these skoda boys at the weekend, there speed and commitment was unreal.

    I say fair play to Breen, first time out in a new car with a few problems, he was well on the pace and Im sure he felt the pressure of not wanting to bin it either, even though it was his so called 'home event'.

    Great shame that Fisher went out too but as someone said before the wee fiesta and the pugs just didnt seem to have the legs of the skodas.

    As for the drive of the rally, I think that boy in the black megane should get it, he seemed to be wrestling with the car to keep in a straight line most of the time but he kept the toe in! Think they need to work on there irish set up!

    Great rally, well done to all involved.

    He wasn't the first 2wd home, McCormack beat him by 2min 3.2sec. And remember that the DS3 is probably 100hp down and 200kg heavier.

    I think Fergus made it fairly clear he was talking about the National section of the event. We weren't checkin Marty's times and i'd be fairly sure Marty or Dave had no pass on our times!

    I wasn't ignoring McCormacks result, I was as Gary says referring to the National, and, rear wheel drive entries.

    Has to be Hannian. First time on Irish tar and to push Mikkleson into a mistake and take the win.

    Awesome driving at 100% all weekend.

    Ah right, so what you meant to say was in their part of the rally, in their particular type of car they were the fastest.



    I'm only winding lads so don't take offence, it's just a bit craic.
