Looks like gareth machale went off on ss8:eek:. He hit a bank on ss7 and thought he had damaged the suspension and then went off the road in ss8. It's kind of sad to see his chance of victory destroyed:(. Before this it was a great battle between him and the genie;)

Further retirements included Kenny McKinstry, his Subaru WRC stopping with a presumed mechanical problem at the first junction in stage 7. Michael Curran finished stage 7 OK, still 2nd in Group N, and 7th overall, but he did report a damaged 5th gear following a heavy landing over a jump. News is coming through that Michael’s Lancer has sadly stopped in stage 8. Also missing at the end of stage 8 is Ray Breen.

Gareth has some pace if he can keep up with Eugene and even beat him!! Think he's proved a few people wrong this weekend. Has huge potential!!

Don't get me wrong, Donnelly is a great driver, but to be fair to Gareth, he was in front most of the day yesterday and before he went off today, he was only 0.7 sec behind Donnelly:eek:. Then look back at last week in Mexico, Gareth came sixth, the first irish person in something like 21 years to score points in WRC:eek:. So he isn't some flash in the pan!!!:laugh:

I hope we see more of Gareth on the tarmac championship as Rallying will start to get boring if there isn't anyone to push donnelly. I'd hate to see it like Formula 1 last year with schumacer for example!!!!

gareth has to finish the rally before he gets a result yeah he seems to have the pace and the money to compete at the sharp end but need to get a little farther than stage 8 before he proves anyone wrong

what a load of shite he was beating the rally god the all singing all dancing genie he ran into car trouble which lost him time he took 14s out of him on the first stage and was on for more on the second :caution:
who else has taking that sort of time out of mr genie in a while. and remember that is his first irish rally in a focus

give him a few years in the car and he will piss all over the boys in the itc

Donnelly is always slow untill after the first service- or at least quicker after service.
