Donnelly holds advantage

Defending Champion Eugene Donnelly leads Rally Isle of Man by 8.8 seconds from Andreas Mikkelsen after Thursday night's opening four stages.

Eamonn Boland is in third ahead of Paul Bird.

Going into today's second leg, Eugene is worried about the weather not making it's mind up what to do:-

In the British Championship round, Guy Wilks leads Mitsubishi team-mate Gwyndaf Evans by three seconds with Manxman Mark Higgins third another 7.4 seconds back.

Mark says the two in front have a little more top-end speed, so he's praying for rain to even things up:-

The first cars are due to leave the Grandstand at just before nine o'clock on Friday morning for Leg Two of the event.
