After an alternator problem cost him around 30 minutes on Friday, David Bogie and Kevin Rae didn’t re-start Day 2 on the main Wales Rally GB event. Jonny Greer with Kirsty Riddick had a bad day and dropped to 60th overall by the end of Saturday.
In the National Rally, the Scottish contingent are still going exceptionally well with Jock Armstrong leading last year’s winner Mike Faulkner, but look who is in fourth place. Fraser MacNicol is a star! In fact, five of the top ten crews are Scottish with Jim McRae just outside the top ten in 11th place in the big silly Firenza – all that power and all that rain and mud. Mad.
And yes, I know Mike Storrar isn’t Scottish but anyone who rallies a Morris Marina with a Honda engine is also a star in my book!
