De­fend­ing Lur­gan Park Rally win­ner Garry Jen­nings has been as­sured that the en­gine for his Subaru will be fixed in time for Satur­day’s event.

The en­gine had only just been re­built in the run up to Done­gal. It dropped a pis­ton four miles into the open­ing stage of the three-day event, and with the dam­age ter­mi­nal, he was forced to pull out.

“With the Lur­gan Park Rally com­ing up we de­cided not to waste any time re­mov­ing the en­gine from the car and get­ting it sent over to Eng­land,” he ex­plained.

Jen­nings is aim­ing for his fourth-straight vic­tory at the North Ar­magh Mo­tor Club event hav­ing con­quered it in 2013, 2014 and again in 2015.

De­clan Boyle will at­tempt the event for the first time and will be hop­ing to be Jen­nings’ clos­est chal­lenger in his Ford Fi­esta RS WRC. He too re­tired from Done­gal with a gear­box prob­lem. Boyle is third on the seeded en­try list.
