Looks like Iain McDonalds 96 (XBY) is out unfortunately with "mechanical" problems. Donald's blue and white one still going after regularity zone 11 still waiting for the full set of results for zone 12.

If that's the red 96, I understand he has "re-modelled " a front corner and bent a chassis leg. Haven't heard from Donald today, but results seem to show him still going.

Sadly Donald went out on the last but one regularity zone - must be gutted but a great effort for getting as far as he did - hope he didn't spend too much on oil and spark plugs!!

Sorry for delay, night shift over the weekend slows everything down! Donald had a meeting with the Armco on the Col de turini, trying hard and just went wide, steering and wheels knackered I think, so sadly the car is coming home by transporter. Donald enjoyed the experience, but I think is keen to get back to doing some stage rallying rather than regularities, so with any luck we will see him out on the stages in the 96, once it's been given a bit of TLC.

Thanks for the update, glad to hear it wasn't the engine but sorry for Donald that he crashed out so close to the end. However he picked a famous place to go out so it will be remembered!!
Look forward to seeing him out on some stage events later in the year - there are quite a few Saabs appearing now which is good to see.
