    Default Shackleton rally tomorrow (Ballykelly)

    Anyone up for going to this? A great event for spectators and previous events here have been a great success

    Wish me luck, been working at rallies 17 years and finally the time had come to don a suit and helmet. Co driving for a mate in and eg civic. My office for tomorrow is in the following link....

    Well how did you get on today then? Timing for calling the notes is a lot harder than it looks on rpm. We'd fuel starvation on the first stage and lost near 3 and a half min so we were screwed from the outset but got some decent times in after that with the only other problem being oil leaking from the gear bag and filling the car with smoke but it was near the end of the last stage so we only lost a couple of secs.

    25th o/a and 4th in the class (13 cars) very pleased. Had a wee excursion in the middle of all that too. I got on ok on the notes, couple of small mistakes but got back on them thankfully. Great event and great days craic
