On to round two and the Wm. Loughman Forestry Rally and Seamus took 40 points from the forest event but it was Simon Reid who took top points. Paschal O'Shea driving his Mk11 took 46 points from the event and moved into third place on the table.

On to the third event of the season and Seamus was back on form and took the honours with top points but Paschal O'Shea was there to share the honours. The event saw Lisa Knox and Gemma Kerley move into fourth and fifth respectively.

At this point of the season there as been a meeting of senior members of the club and it has been decided that if Mr. Anderson enters the club's Hillclimb event during May, he will be handicapped. Seamus will be required to wear a BLINDFOLD during the event.
