This week’s RIAC - Motorsport Ireland classic video upload is round 9 of the 1992 Dunlop Saloon Car Championship from Kirkistown featuring commentary from Alan Tyndall and Brian Tuite.
Championship leader Michael Cullen had to sit out the race due to injury, so David Kidd needed a strong performance in his Peugeot 205 GTI to close the points gap. With the up to 2 litre and over 2 litre cars competing together however, the fast Co. Down track played into the hands of the turbocharged Sierra Cosworths and it was Gordon Kellett who showed everyone a clean pair of heels, leading from pole and seeing thing all the way through to the chequered flag.
This programme will be available to stream below from 7pm on Thursday, July 2nd:
Next week’s upload will feature rare footage from the 1970 Circuit of Ireland where Roger Clark completed his hat-trick on the gruelling Easter marathon in his works Ford Escort RS1600, fending off local competition as well as a number of talented Swedish drivers who were lured to the event by virtue of its European Rally Championship status.
