Why was the penalty removed?

Donnelly was fastest on the stages, fair play well done to Paddy Toner also.

Good to see a Dunlop car win the Dunlop championship.

Kermit were you there did you hear what he said to the Guard or the marshall at the in control of the stage come to that???

233IM is dead right in what he says, I was at the ramp also and heard the childish scathing attack on both Clare Mc and the Gardai, the Coc and his team were a stones throw from the ramp listening to this attack on how they should kop on to bogey times etc etc etc, the bogey times are not the clubs fault but the green books regulations, live with it- Maguire and Breen also bet the bogey, did they complain? Great thanks for a hard working club and all the hours they put in.

and as for the sppech at prize giving, the blatant rudeness and the attempt to entice the gathering to turn on the gardai by writing to the media!!
and the final comment was terrible, I wouldnt repeat it.

and one thing so great about the speech, how he congratulated his fellow competitors on winning the championship that day and how they before this supported his approach to the club to have the leitamite penalties scrubbed- did anyone else hear the sporting gesture..........no as it didnt exist:mad:

as I say the green book isnt worth a fuck if you are in the top ten.

At the end of the day Charlie Donnelly got what he wanted , his way but at a price. He will never have the respect of competitors and spectators who know the real story again.
Mike Marshall is a legend in Irish Rallying, a man with balls and the courage of his convictions, even if you dont agree with him sometimes you have to say he has the good of the sport at his heart, he doesnt suffer fools or pander to egos- In Killarney you are a competitor wether you are no 1 or no 151 and when you are wrong you are wrong, he will come down on you like a ton of bricks, but its a fair and measured ton.
Boy can he run a rally (no disrespect to Clare or any other club)


As 223 says those who know the full facts can make their mind up and we are all entitled to our opinion, but he makes solid points and I agree 100%
