SONY DSCAnother trip to the Emerald Isle and glorious weather for the 2013 ALMC Stages Rally. With Asphalt championship regulars making up most of the top ten it looked like English and Welsh crews would be dominating the overall results. Damien Cole & James Morgan (Focus WRC) led after loop 1 by just 2 seconds from Steve Simpson & Patrick Walsh (Impreza WRC) with Paul Bird & Aled Davies (Focus WRC) a second further back. With the stages repeated Bird took the lead after SS6 by 1 second from Cole with Simpson 5 seconds further back. Then going in to the final stage the gap remained the same between the top two with Simpson slipping back and it took a stellar final stage from Bird to secure a maiden Irish victory by 6 seconds from Cole. Simpson was a further 15 seconds back by the end of the event. Read More »

The event was dominated by Melvyn Evans & Aled Davies (Impreza WRC) who eventually won by almost a minute and a half but the rest of the podium was not decided until the end of the very last stage. Damien Cole & James Morgan (Focus WRC) were in the box seat but a broken fly by wire throttle saw them drop over a minute, slipping back to 4th overall. This allowed James Belton & Mark Glennerster (Imprzea WRC) to take 2nd place with Steve Simpson & Patrick Walsh (Impreza WRC) a fine 3rd overall. Read More »
