A damp and slippery Whinney Hill Stage greeted the top runners in the FIA European Rally Championship qualifying stage on Thursday afternoon with Irish driver Robert Barrable fastest in his Ford Fiesta over the 2.56 mile long test, the opening chapter of the 2014 Circuit of Ireland Rally.

Next up Robert Consani in the first of the Peugeots with pre event favourite and championship leader Craig Breen third in his Peugeot.

Kevin Abbring at the wheel of a Peugeot 208 T16, same as the Breen car, slotted into fourth sport while the fastest Skoda was driven by Sepp Wiegand and Esapekka rounded off the top dozen in his Skoda S2000.
