With just under two weeks to go, excitement is building surrounding the Killarney Rally of The Lakes. The event is based solely around Killarney this year in a much more spectator and competitor route than before but still contains the classic stages such as Molls Gap, Beallaghbeama and Gortnagane which will see the stage starting at its where it used to in 2006 and will include the infamous hairpin going under the railway bridge where Andreas Mikkelsen (yes the current Volkswagen WRC driver) at the age of just 17 did this..
However the stage is running in the opposite direction this year, but will still be as spectacular. Donagh Kelly is seeded number 1 on the road and will be going in as the favorite to win. Top seeded R5 category car is KDMC member Keith Cronin with Killarney man Mikey Galvin, the pair putting the Irish Championship at higher importance over the British championship which sees the Pirelli Carlisle rally on the same weekend. The pairing will be favourites to take the R5 category and max points for the championship.
Anyway, heres a promotional video I did for the event a couple of weeks ago to get you in the mood for it.
Keep it flat, Darragh.
