Alcorn has one single stage under his belt probably because its the only one he ever done. Now who all is goin in class 11 in the GSMC rally, cause if anyone from down south wanted to prove themselves its now time as i believe Alcorn is goin but so is Manus Kelly. Still time to get an entry in for anyone who is interested!!!!!!!!! Also could someone tell Pat Donegan to put in an entry as some people think he is the top class 13 man in the country well he wont be in the GSMC and if your wondering whos goin to beat him ask him who was beating him in the Northeast Mini-Rally before the car stopped!!!

I've wrote this in on a number off occasions, there are two James Staffords, one usually drives and one usually navigates! Right here we go again! James snr drives the Nova, has won two single stages, imo is the quickest 1600cc pilot in Ireland. James jnr usually navigates but got a lend of james snr's Nova for the junior lakes in 2004 and won it. He has just won the 205 challenge and is also a serious pilot. I imagine hoping from a standard spec 205 to a lhd widetrack S1600 Puma and ur 1st miles being Molls Gap is a fair learning curve but he set fastest time on the 3rd stage (Caragh Lake) and may have won it if the last stage hadn't of been cancelled.

Terence Shaughnessy's name hasn't been mentioned here at all for the gsmc class 11. Alcorn an all the rest will get a fair fright when they go to match their times with his.

terrence shaughnessy wont have his twin cam in the gsmc rally he will drive seamus doyles 2.0 16v mk2 escort the car with the tractive sequental gerabox, he is using the car to try out the tractive box as he is thinking quite strongly of buying a tractive for the twin cam corolla the he normally drives

I'll put on money that alcorn will beat any other 1600 man! He caught power in a super 1600 in the single stage he won!! he cleaned Conlon and henna in a couple of rallys and Conlon beat stafford so all in all that would mean he'd beat him too.

Face it people Alcorn will not be beaten take a look at his time over stage one in the harvest, he has done very little rallying still in single figures, he's just a natural talent. Will drive the door handles off anything, wht else would dmg be sponsoring him!!!

Shaughnessy's quick but as far as i know Alcorn beat him already in some rally about a month ago, could be wrong tho??

Kit Car, did you read my previous post! There's 2 James Staffords! Conlon never rallied against James Stafford who usually drives the Nova. Stafford beat James Coleman and Alan Doherty to win his first single stage and beat O Shaughnessy, Seamus Doyle abnd Willy Whitty to win his second. He beat O' Shaughnessy by a minute on the rock, and he's always on the pace of any of the class 13 boys wherever he goes. Back in the foot and mouth yr he put his 1300 Nova into 11th overall on an unrestricted single stage, 10secs back from a certain Garry Jennings in a 106 cup car and the top 5 in that rally read Jimmy Lambert, David James, Philip Shaw, John Nolan and Tommy Randles.
