This week’s RIAC - Motorsport Ireland classic video from the RPM Motorsport collection is the final round of the 2000 Northern Irish Rally Championship, the Toshiba Rally.
It was a case of Group A versus Group B in the 2000 Northern Ireland Rally Championship with the series boiling down to a two-way title fight between Robin Phillips in a Toyota Celica and Denis Biggerstaff in his venerable Metro 6R4. Phillips put in a last gasp charge to ensure he won the championship by just one point but at the head of the field Robert Woodside Jnr was setting a scorching pace in a hired Subaru and he held on to claim his first ever rally win. This coverage, which is over an hour in length, also contains full stage incars from Glenn Allen and Richard Hogg over the classic stages in the Glens of Antrim.
This programme will be available to stream below from 7pm on Thursday, December 3rd.
Next week’s upload will feature more action from the year 2000 with action from four rounds of the RT2000 race series.
