Mcrae looks ahead to Done­gal out­ing

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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!”
