That’s What is on offer to the leading Irish crewed Escort MKII in this year’s Joule Donegal International Rally – the opportunity to compete in the Mull Rally in October.
Organisers of the Joule Donegal International Rally this year say it is the “Ultimate Ford Escort MKII prize”.
Beatsons Building Supplies, Den Motorsport, Donald Brown, Calum Duffy and James MacGillivray in association with the Mull Rally are offering this prize.
Director of Beatsons Building Supplies, (Who sponsor the Mull Rally) Ross Marshall, Commented:
“When we wanted to attract the Best Escort MKII crews to come to Mull,
Ireland was the only destination to be considered and Donegal always attracts the cream of the crop –
The Mull Rally like Donegal, once you compete you get the bug and need to return year after year”.
The Mull Rally Clerk of the Course, Andy Jardine Told us that:
“Mull has provided a unique tarmac challenge for the last 46 years and this initiative between the organisers of the Donegal Rally,
Beatsons Building Supplies and others will mean that the challenge of the island can be introduced across to the other side of the Irish Sea.
The Escort has won the rally more times than any other car so to have this going to the quickest Irish Escort pilot in Donegal is very fitting.
We look forward to welcoming the winning crew to the island in October.”
Clerk of the Course for the Joule Donegal International Rally, Eamon McGee said:
“Donegal always attracts a strong Escort entry and this added prize will certainly give the crews something to focus on.
We are delighted to have struck up this relationship with the Mull Rally”.
The 2016 Joule Donegal International Rally takes place from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th June 2016
