Late Drama for Eugene in Donegal!
24th May 2016, Posted by lakeland Tyres
With a couple of dramas ahead of them on the first loop they soon moved into fifth place overall, acclimatising to the machine in the wet. On the second loop the Glen stage was cancelled, but now they were getting into the groove with a third fastest time on Atlantic Drive behind the lead battling Keith Cronin and Manus Kelly.
"It was getting their again and I was enjoying it immensely. It's still a brilliant rally and credit to the Donegal Motor Club for the event. However for us on the final stage I braked too late for a chicane and hit a bale, breaking the radiator and it was all over. It was bitterly disappointing, but that's rallying" said Eugene.
"Congratulations to Manus Kelly for a great victory and to Keith Cronin for his close second, and commiserations to those who retired whilst going so well."
"A big thank you to Lakeland Tyres, McGeehan Motorsport and our other vital sponsors such as Paul and Tanya from Rally Cover, Protune Remapping, Sligo Pallets, PPP Group & McPartland Fuels- Coal Merchants for helping to get us here. It was a really enjoyable weekend, and there were a lot of positives too."
