Rally - Kirkaldy wins in Fife



Alan Kirkaldy won yesterday's Granite Stages Rally at Leuchars in north east Fife but only after a day long battle with Alistair Inglis, the Escort driver finishing a mere 11 seconds ahead of the Lotus Exige pilot. Gordon Morrison was on the case too, the Subaru finishing just 3 seconds adrift of Inglis. Ian Forgan was also in the mix, he set off at a cracking pace in the Hyundai but a turbo pipe failure in SS6 cost him the chance of a podium finish. Ross Marshall was fifth in the Skoda and Taylor Gibb was in top three contention till an overshoot and a concrete post cost him a minute in the final stage, but he was lucky to finish at all.

1, A Kirkaldy, 45m 19s
