Lark in the Park to Done­gal for new stage

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

This week­end’s Lark in the Park Rally will re­turn to Columb’s Park out­side Lon­don­derry while also fea­tur­ing a new stage over the bor­der in Done­gal.

Clerk of the Course Danny Gorm­ley be­lieves the stage will prove a hit with crews – there are 48 en­tered. “There is a brand new stage in Done­gal, which will be run three times and all in­di­ca­tions are that it will be a big hit with the com­peti­tors,” said Gorm­ley. “In­clud­ing the three stages we will be run­ning in St Columb’s Park, it takes the mileage crews will com­plete to al­most 30.”

Joe Mcgonigle will head the field as the first seeded car in his Skoda Fabia S2000 af­ter a bril­liant ninth on the Cir­cuit of Ire­land Rally two weeks ago.

Mean­while, next month’s Tour of Sper­rins will switch to gravel for the first time in a decade.

The May 7 event will be a count­ing round of both the North­ern Ire­land and Ir­ish Forestry cham­pi­onships. The re­al­lo­ca­tion of Road Clos­ing Or­ders has led to the change of sur­face.

Mcgonigle is num­ber one seed for Lark in the Park rally
