Fossa’s Sam Leech deserved an award for his never give up attitude on last weekend’s Corrib Oil Galway International Rally.
His Opel Corsa suffered a broken drive-shaft on Saturday. He got the car back to the Loughrea Service Park where his mechanics fixed the damaged component.
He re-joined on Sunday morning under SuperRally rules only for a second driveshaft to fail.
Once again his mechanics fixed the car and re-joined a third time – only to suffer and engine misfire over the final loop of stage. As a result of the high attrition Leech managed to win his class.
