Wick were drawing 3-3 with Keith until 4 mins to go and conceded 2 late goals to lose 5-3 at Harmsworth Park this afternoon.
After taking pics at the Thurso vs Invergordon (3-0) and Caithness RFC vs Lasswade (14-18) cup matches in Thurso, I arrived late in the first half with the score at 2-2. Wick were 2-0 up and all over Keith, but conceded 3 goals later in the first half.
Sean Keith scored a hat-trick for Keith. Stevie Cunningham, Richard MacAdie and sub Sam MacKay scored for Wick.
Halkirk Utd lost 3-2 to Dingwall Thistle in the cup (in Dingwall)

For the 1st stage, I set up at a tight hairpin corner and got one pic (2nd pic above) before the stage was cancelled due to a car catching fire. I then set off to a forest track a few miles North of Lairg (for stage 3) and got around a dozen pics before there was a delay of 50 mins due to a smash. These incidents meant I did not get many photos as I had to leave at 3pm. There were a few thousand spectators and parking was a big problem. A walk of around 1 mile from the car park to the track was the norm.
Bruce Oag from Castletown finished in overall 24th place in his blue Escort (top pic). Not sure if he won his class. Mark Alexander from Reay retired due to mechanical problems at the start of the 3rd stage, so I did not get any pics.
Mark Elder from Dunbeath finished in 65th and James Brims along with Sandy Coghill finished in 60th. I will have to check if I got any pics of them.

Even with the stadium lights full on, I had to shoot at ISO 4,000 (at f2.8) to get a shutter speed of around 1/800 sec, so pics are a bit noisier than usual.
