HEARD PRODRIVE DID A SERIOUS TARMAC TEST IN CAVAN ON MONDAY WITH A WRC DRIVER IN AN IRISH COMPETITORS SILVER CAR AS THEIR OWN TEST CAR WAS NOT AVAILABLE. DO THEY SEE A FUTURE IN RALLY IRELAND?

Not many nice sliver cars out there?

But I reckon there is one that looks nice enough to win the circuit Real and true.

I doubt Atkinson as I am sure he wold have been in Spain. Maybe Pasi Hagstrom as he has conducted tests here on an S11 not long ago.
Altough it is a long time since Pasi qualified as WRC Driver.

It was Chris Atkinson and he was testing new ultra secret Pirelli's. He was only there for a very short while and then he left by helicopter to catch flights for Spain.

I know a farmer up that country and he is my source- he knows fuck all about rallying but he knows enough that he could tell me it was Subarus Australian driver "Chris" it is some special tyre they have developed to work on the new non active cars so they were doing all the testing in an active car to make the tyres work even harder to prove endurance, at least thats what the farmer was told by some fella in a yellow jacket?

Isnt it cool that Prodrive would choose Ireland and Cavan to do this test?

Atkinson was there, and the person I know on the tractor was talking to some of the crew there.

And its a New Holland tractor not a Zetor- No EEC grant so fuck you
