This week’s RIAC-Motorsport Ireland classic video from the RPM Motorsport collection is action from the 1990 Lurgan Park Rally with commentary from Gary Gillespie and Alan Tyndall.
1990 saw the 11th running of the Lurgan Park Rally but for the first time in its history, conditions were wet. Four-time Lurgan Park winner Kenny McKinstry set off as the favourite in his new all wheel drive Ford Sierra Cosworth with Jimmy McRae and James Cullen set to challenge him in their turbocharged Fords. However, it was Eamonn McAleenan in his home-built Toyota Starlet who took the lead early on until differential failure. First overall then became a fight between Derek McGarrity and Davy Greer but it was a hard charging Ken Colbert (who was 12th after the opening stage) who came through the pack to take victory.
This programme will be available to stream below from 7pm on Thursday, October 22nd:
Next week’s upload will feature the 2000 Donegal International Rally where Andrew Nesbitt and James O’Brien destroyed the opposition by taking fastest time on every stage of the event.
