This week’s RIAC - Motorsport Ireland classic video upload is round 8 of the 1992 Formula Opel Lotus Championship from Kirkistown.
With the championship battle coming to the boil, Michael Edgar and Vivion Daly were both tied on 86 points at the head of the field as the series moved north to the fast Co. Down Kirkistown track. The former airfield circuit tended to favour local drivers who felt they had an edge on car set up at the venue and so it proved as Edgar dominated the race, taking a lights to flag victory with Daly failing to score. An interested spectator at the race was former F1 driver Martin Donnelly. Commentary comes from Alan Tyndall and Brian Tuite.
This programme will stream below from 7pm on Thursday, July 23rd.
Next week’s upload will be the 1990 Galway International Rally, an event where Austin McHale would debut his new BMW M3 amid treacherous conditions against strong opposition from Bertie Fisher, Frank Meagher, and John Price.
