Round 6: Hankook Down Rally, 7 July
Derek McGarrity extended his championship lead with victory on the Down Rally by the scant margin of one second.
From the start McGarrity was embroiled in a close fight with Donagh Kelly, who took the lead by the end of the second loop of stages. Having maintained his lead thereafter, Kelly went into the final stage 6.4 seconds clear of McGarrity.
However, McGarrity produced a strong run to complete the stage 7.4 second quicker than his rival and claim a slender victory. Reigning champion Kenny McKinstry completed the podium in third.
