This week’s RIAC - Motorsport Ireland Classic video upload is the 1990 Donegal International Rally programme with commentary from Alan Tyndall & Gary Gillespie.
This was a truly classic event in which local Opel Manta driver, Vincent Bonner put it up to the championship contenders, Bertie Fisher and Austin McHale in their BMW M3s as a three-way battle for the lead developed.
Jimmy McRae, who was unable to start the event was drafted in to give a unique stage side commentary on his rivals and the in-car footage from McHale (who won the event by one second from Fisher) in the Xtra-vision M3 gives us a driver’s eye view of some of Irelands most challenging stages, including Knockalla.
This programme will be available to stream below from 7pm on Thursday, 11th June:
Next week’s upload will be the 1992 Lurgan Park Rally programme, a real slice of Summer motorsport action and an interesting comparison between the ageing Metro 6R4s of Ken Colbert and Andrew Nesbitt and the new Subaru Legacy era of Kenny McKinstry and Bertie Fisher.
