David Hardie still leads in Solway after 6 stages on 36m 53s, but last year's winner, Ian Paterson is out. On the fifth stage, Paterson slid wide on the exit of the hairpin near the start and left the road. There seems to be litle damage but a signpost and saplings stopped him going too far off the road.
That means Mark McCulloch is holding second place (37m 07s) from Jim Sharp (38m 39s). Richard Dickson is fourth ((39m 06s) from Steve Retchless (39m 44s) and Barry Lindsay (39m 59s) .... more later
