2004 World Champion Niall McShea from Fermanagh was back behind the wheel this weekend as well, finishing in sixth place in the Production Championship round. Co-driver Omagh's Gordon Noble, who is Assistant Clerk of the Course on Rally Ireland said: "We've had a great run in Argentina, despite not having a lot of experience in this car. It's a fabulous country and the fans are very enthusiastic -- just like home!" McShea will drive the Subaru Impreza S12 for Lukoil Rally Team -- TaCK for the remainder of the season.

Bad weather and transportation problems forced the cancellation of Friday's stages of the event, but competitors more than made up for it over the two days rallying on some of the highest stages in the WRC, climbing to over 2,100 metres in the mountains of Cordoba.

Rally Ireland's Deputy Clerk of the Course Fred Gallagher was also on hand this weekend in advance of the Championship's inaugural Irish round in November this year.
