Double Irish Rallying Champion Donagh Kelly, has withdrawn, and is one of a few crews which withdrew their entry from this weekends Rally.
Another high profile entry Ed O Callaghan in a mark two Escort has decided to withdraw also.
With still 35 crews in Reserve hoping to take part, it still is a bumper entry, and will certainly be an exciting spectacle on the Inishowen Peninsula this coming Saturday.
Mechanical Scrutiny will take place at the An Grianan Estate on Friday.
The Rally will commence on Saturday morning with cars leaving Parc Ferme at 9.20am. The first of 9 stages (3 X 3 format) are due to start at 10.11am.
Marshalls are required and can get in contact with Chief Marshall, Eamon McGee firstname.lastname@example.org
