This week’s RIAC - Motorsport Ireland classic video upload is an RTÉ production of the 1970 Circuit of Ireland with commentary by Mike Murphy.
The 1970 Circuit of Ireland saw Roger Clark complete a hat-trick of wins on the gruelling Easter marathon in his works Ford Escort RS1600. As well as having to fend off local competition, Clark also had to contend with a number of talented Swedish drivers who were lured to the event by virtue of its European Rally Championship status.
This programme will be available to stream below from 7pm on Thursday, July 9th:
Next week’s upload will feature the 1992 Manx National Rally where Bertie Fisher took the laurels as he continued to get used to Subaru Legacy power while in the same programme RPM also treated us to some rare hillclimb footage from the Cruagh and Laragh Hillclimbs whilst catching up with the championship campaign of Jenny Kennedy.
