Jock Armstrong crashed out of the lead of this year's Speyside Stages on the fourth test. Cresting a Left 9 in the fearsomely quick Gartly Moor test, the car slid wide and cowped on to its ear. That means David Bogie is now in the lead by over half a minute from Mike Faulkner and Euan Thorburn.
After five stages, Bogie leads by 32 seconds with Faulkner and Thorburn tied in second place. Robbie Head is fourth, but by only 2 seconds from Phillip Morrow with Reay MacKay in sixth.
Andy Horne is out too, the Metro spotted parked up in Gartly. Fortunately the rain has stopped, but life doesn't get much better for service crews than the cafe at Huntly Market. They make their own Scotch and steak pies here. Nectar fit for gods.
