One of our correspondents tells the Gurn:
"Local loon Peter Beaton (Nairn) and his navigator Kenny Foggo (North Kessock). were competing in the McGrady Insurance ANICC Junior 1000 Rally Challenge Ireland. This is the first round of a series or rallies, the first took place in Kirkistown near Belfast where he came 4th and this was only his 3rd time rallying. He did have time to make up after a couple of mistakes but that has made him more determined to finish better next time. He is going to be really busy this year as he is also competing in the Scottish juniors with another local boy Jude MacDonald (Culloden) this means he has 14 events this year."
