After 3 stages on this year's Gleaner Oils Speyside Stages Rally, Jock Armstrong leads from David Bogie by 3 seconds. Armstrong took an early lead over the two short one mile blasts around the Elgin city centre Cooper Park this morning but Bogie snatched a second back on the first of the forest tests, the 2.79 mile Rosarie test.
At least it was a dry start this morning, as the crews headed east from Elgin it started to rain, and it's raining steadily here now at Huntly where the cars are due shortly for service.
At least with me driving the Honda Jazz IMA Hybrid there's little chance of getting done for speeding, as the Polis up here always keep a beady eye on the A96 traffic and love playing with their cameras.
Euan Thorburn is third, 4 seconds behind Bogie with Andy Horne a further 2 seconds behind. Robbie Head is lying fifth but only 1 second behind him is Phillip Morrow. It's still early days up, here but with the roads turning wet, things are going to get a lot trickier and stickier.
