Very strange, on the last stage on Sunday...by the time what seemed very much so like the last car had passed us McShea had not went through...we walked up the stage from a section we were at...it took us about 5 mins to walk up to the nearest junction.....and no course cars had came past us either...

so can anyone explain that unless McShea was the very last car to pass on that stage, how did he appear on the first stage on Monday ? Incidentally on the first stage on Monday he went over a bridge jump (after the school) and either the driverhsaft popped out or broke...I spoke to him at the side of the road shortly afterwards...I have photos of the car sitting at the side of the road

The Orion is not an historic car :laugh:
I'd disagree, this car has far more history than most historics, rallyretro should have a section on his site just for this car!!:yes:
Funny enough, I intend to do an article soon on it.

Its a nostalgic car for sure, wouldn't call it historic though :p
