This week’s RIAC - Motorsport Ireland classic video upload is coverage of the 1980 Cork 20 International Rally with commentary from George Hamilton.
Jimmy McRae and his Vauxhall Chevette HSR were a dominant force in 1980 having already claimed victories on the Galway International Rally, the Circuit of Ireland Rally and the Donegal International Rally before the Scottish driver ventured to Cork in early October with co-driver Frank Main. Local opposition was strong but gradually fell away, allowing McRae to cruise to a commending victory over the closing stages including a spectator stage on St. Patrick’s Street in Cork city centre.
The programme will be available to stream below from 7pm on Thursday, August 13th:
Next week’s upload will feature coverage from the 1990 Ulster Rally where the British and Irish Championships went head to head for the second time that year.
