David Bogie leads today's Speyside Stages by ONE second after 2 stages (of 8) from Euan Thorburn. The Fiesta was 1 second quicker on the opening test and tied with the Focus on the second. Jock Armstrong is currently best of the rest 5 seconds up on Mike Faulkner from Barry Groundwater and Donnie MacDonald.
Andy Horne bent a suspension arm yesterday at the test but the Focus was fine this morning after sending someone to get parts - M-Sport In Cumbria! Quintin Milne is running out of his original seeding order as he's not in the Focus and didn't want to impede anyone so he's running beside The Hebridean Hurricane, that should be a good battle today between him and Calum MacKenzie. Sandy Arbuthnott (who else?) had a successful test yesterday but after completing all his runs, he was driving the Metro home when "it picked up a 'shell". That meant another overnight for the boys, stripping the engine, fitting a new set of bearing shells, and building the engine back up and sticking it in the car. His day job as a lucky white heather salesman still isn't working eh?
