Was talking to a friend in the Harper Rally Prep Team today and he has told me that the 2 cars they are running in Rally Ireland are to pull out over a last minute change of rules (KPL and Noel Mccarrick). Tom Nolan of Motorsport Ireland has decided last week that the only legal fuel to be used on this event is shell fuel.The drivers concerned dont mind following the rules but the problem is that all of Stan Harpers cars run an FIA approved and fully legal fuel called Carless Turbo and there just isint enough time to remap the cars to Shell Fuel as this rule was only announced on the 29th of September. If they were to use Shell on the rally the engines just wouldnt last the rally and trust me when i say this, an engine rebuild for a world rally car is far from cheap. The HRP team are working on getting an enginer to remap the car but i have being told it aint looking good at the moment. Surely this is a massive blow to the rally to loose 2 wr cars at such a late stage when in my opinion the entry was struggleing to attract the big names in Ireland already.

Only Shell racing fuels ???? possibly one for the monopolies commission then !! ..... perhaps Shell or the M.I. should provide the engineers to remap the affected cars free of charge ............
