KELLY SEEKS FIRST DONEGAL VICTORY
Three-way fight likely for prestigious event win
Reigning Irish Tarmac champion Donagh Kelly believes winning in Donegal would be the greatest achievement of his 20-year career should he break his duck on the prestigious event.
Kelly is only competing on select events this year, having won five of the six rallies on last year’s calendar. But the June classic still evades his grasp.
“The plan for Donegal is quite simple: I will go like mad from the word go,” said Kelly, winner of the previous Irish Tarmac counter – the International Rally of the Lakes. “To win would be the ultimate achievement in my 20 years of rallying– but it won’t be easy.
“Everyone taking part wants to win Donegal as much as me and finishing second isn’t in their game plan either. Everything is good preparation-wise and the car is 100 per cent ready to go and I am confident.”
