Jen­nings back in Im­preza in Done­gal

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Garry Jen­nings will re­turn to the cock­pit of his Subaru Im­preza S12B WRC to fight Done­gal In­ter­na­tional win­ner Manus Kelly on this week­end’s Done­gal Har­vest Rally.

Jen­nings hasn’t com­peted in the car since be­fore the Ul­ster Rally when he drove a Mit­subishi Mi­rage R5.

Un­cer­tainty had sur­rounded whether his S12B Subaru Im­preza would be ready for the clos­ing round of the Tri­ton Show­ers Na­tional Rally Cham­pi­onship but the delivery of a new gear­box cas­ing has lifted the threat of his non-at­ten­dance. “We’ve been wait­ing on it since July but it’s fi­nally here,” he said.

Jen­nings will face op­po­si­tion from num­ber one seed De­clan Boyle’s Ford Fi­esta RS WRC and Kelly, who shocked many by win­ning in Done­gal on only his sec­ond event in the Im­preza S12B WRC hired from Melvyn Evans.

Mean­while, Joe Mcgonigle will make his first start in a Skoda Fabia R5 on the event hav­ing pur­chased the Czech ma­chine from BRC con­tender David Bo­gie.

The Ir­ish Na­tional cham­pi­onship has al­ready been won by Ford Fi­esta WRC driver Roy White, who isn’t on the en­try list.
