Mcrae looks ahead to Donegal outing
Five-time British Rally Champion Jimmy Mcrae will return to the Donegal Rally for the first time in 20 years.
The Scot will drive MIX Motorsport’s Vauxhall Firenza this weekend on an event he first won in a Chevette HSR in 1980. “Donegal’s a great place,” said Mcrae. “I’ve done the event a lot of times in a lot of different cars, including Porsches and Sierra Cosworths and going over there in the Firenza will be a lot of fun.”
As a former Irish Tarmac Champion and Donegal winner, Mcrae has a wealth of experience to draw on.
“The stages are classics, from the wide stretches on Atlantic Drive to some of the more narrow, technical sections,” he said. “I’m actually away on holiday at the time of the event, but I’ve got four days off to go to Donegal!”
