Last year’s winner
Challenging Kelly will be last year’s winner Garry Jennings, who also won in 2012. He’s chalked up two rally wins this year – he conquered a tricky wet encounter in Galway and also the Mayo Stages. The Fermanagh driver is one of the most flamboyant left competing in a WRC car in Ireland and is sure to entertain the inevitable crowd numbering in the thousands.
Last year he took the Donegal lead on stage four, and held off Declan Boyle in his then-new Ford Fiesta RS WRC by over a minute.

Donegal a good rattle. Donegal is one rally I always want to do well at. It’s a three-day event, the biggest of the year.”
The 2014 winner is one of the few drivers in the event’s history to win his home event.
