1988 Galway International Rally to be broadcast by Motorsport Ireland from 7pm on Thurs 25th June

Motorsport Ireland is streaming the 1988 Galway International Rally Programme from 7pm on Thursday 25th June 2020

This week’s Motorsport Ireland – RIAC classic video upload is the 1988 Galway International Rally Programme with commentary from Alan Tyndall. 

As a traditional curtain raiser to the Irish rally calendar, the Galway International Rally always attracts great interest and 1988 provided a classic professional versus amateur tussle. 

The Ford factory team sent Mark Lovell and Roger Freeman to the event in a works Group A Ford Sierra RS Cosworth and while the English pair eventually won, they were pushed to their limits by Austin McHale in his now ageing Opel Manta, while James Cullen and John Lyons put in eye-catching performances in the treacherous conditions.

Next week’s upload will feature saloon racing from Kirkistown in 1992. The 29th August 1992 saw the Dunlop Saloon Championship visit the former airfield racetrack in Kirkistown. The over 2 litre class was made up exclusively Ford Sierra Cosworths with the smaller class dominated by Peugeot 205 Gti's.

This programme will be available to stream below from 7pm on Thursday, 25th May:

Next week’s upload will feature saloon racing from Kirkistown in 1992 where Gordon Kellett showed the opposition a clean pair of heels in a Sierra Cosworth while David Kidd closed in on championship leader Michael Cullen who had to sit out the race.
