1992 MANX NATIONAL RALLY & CRUAGH/LARAGH HILLCLIMBS TO BE BROADCAST BY RIAC FROM 7PM ON THURS 16TH JULYRead Now
This week’s RIAC-Motorsport Ireland classic video upload is the 1992 Manx National Rally together with footage from the Cruagh and Laragh Hillclimbs of the same year.
Following the unsuccessful debut of his Group A Subaru Legacy in the 1992 Circuit of Ireland, Bertie Fisher tackled several events to get better acquainted with the car in preparation for the Donegal International Rally. One such event was the Manx National Rally; an event Fisher had previously won in 1987 and 1989. Fisher won the event comfortably and his testing proved worthwhile as he also went on to win the Donegal International Rally the following month. In the same show, RPM treated us to some rare hillclimb footage from the Cruagh and Laragh events in the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains as they caught up on the championship campaign of Jenny Kennedy who would eventually lift the title that year.
This programme will be available to stream below from 7pm on Thursday, July 16th:
Next week’s upload will feature 1992 Formula Opel/Lotus action from Kirkistown where Michael Edgar laid down a big marker in his championship battle with Vivion Daly.
