This was my first trip to a round of the southern forest championship and i have to say it was very good, weather didn’t hold out too long but wasn’t too bad as it meant i put the camera away and enjoyed watching the event, 2nd stage 3 went off at the corner i was at and the 2nd run through it the part of stage was fast and rough with a few back ends bouncing out of control nearly especially the 106’s and evo’s. the top 6 overall seemed to be on the notes all day especially Allen, McHale, McCarthy which was fun to watch. Also cheers to the 2 lads i was with today as the craic was mighty all day!
