    Not many Classics entered this year. Andy Davies, Andy Heekin and myself. A big Thank You to the many members of this Forum who have given me info or bargain prices for bits. We only got in as a Reserve at number 166 - running around 109. Updates on FB

    Well Joe,
    It’s a full 5 hours from Kilkenny to Letterkenny with a transporter! All going well. We’re second in Class 20 and lying somewhere in the 60’s. We lost about 20 seconds on the last stage due to stage stoppage. An EVO decided there were too many telegraph poles at the end of Letterleague.
    It is unreal just what a Classic Impreza can achieve. Biggest difference from last year is down to Aonghus Power. I’ve 260 brake which is only OK for a Series 1 engine. It’s the torque - the pulling out of junctions is hilarious.
    Bring on tomorrow!

    Surprisingly not sick at all Stephen. The car ran faultlessly for 2 days. We were matching and beating EVO 9 times on Friday and Saturday. The 2019 Donegal To Do list was done tonight. Anyone have any of the following available?
    Both left hand doors
    LH facelift headlight
    RH alloy wishbone
    EJ20 head gasket set?
    2 pin alternator
    We can lighten the car by another 30 kgs and still comply with Class 20 minimum weight.

    Donegal. Where do i start?! What a "feckin unbelievable" weekend and what a challenging event. From two long days or recce last Wednesday and Thursday to an incredibly slippy Friday, really fast Saturday and then the unfortunate retirement Sunday!
    It really is a marathon event and what Manus and Donall have done is nothing short of unbelievable and with not a scratch on the car too!
    We had a mixed event but showed good pace Saturday. I had forgotten just what a machine these WRC's are!
    Our target was to be beating PJ McDermots S12B which we did and some of the middle field R5's such as Pauric Duffy which we did on some stages, even coming close to Rob Duggen and beating Eugene Donnelly on a stage. Not bad for a 15 year old WRC with no upgrades bar S12 Reigers.
    Got caught out on slicks on Fanad Sunday morning and had a fairly heavy slap. Still fair stiff today but if thats all we have then we are lucky. Damage on the car looks worse than it is and the Biggerstaffs are commercial body repairers so wont be a bother to them.
    There was an awful lot of damage done over the weekend in general!
    Thanks for the pic Adrian.
