    Spotted this in town a week or so back:



    Liked it a lot and it looked really clean.

    Oh, and the ‘MINI’ next to it.

    Only just spotted this...
    cracking photo, thanks for posting it Alan!!

    It took me a bit to figure out where it was taken; it has to be at the bottom of the hill in Glandore village (West of Clonakilty). A really smashing stage!

    Many Darrians still come to compete in West Cork, the quickest usually being John Dalton and Gwynfor Jones from Wales.

    And they are generally quick. Some interesting engine choices in them too

    Absolutely.
    They're a joy to watch on full chat on the stages!
    But how the occupants manage to fit in them is frankly beyond me; Darrian GTRs are so incredibly low and tight!!

    A chap in my village growing up had a Darrian T9 with a Rover V8 on four downdraught Webers that he used to do local rallies with. Then he sold it to buy a 6R4.
