Fermanagh’s Garry Jennings (Mitsubishi) and his Letterkenny co-driver Rory Kennedy held off a late challenge from Niall Maguire/Enda Sherry (Subaru WRC) to win the Redcastle Hotel Donegal Harvest Rally, the penultimate round of the Dunlop National Rally Championship.

Jennings, who had originally planned to drive a Subaru WRC, reverted to his usual Mitsubishi and finished five seconds ahead of Maguire.

Gary McPhillips/Gary McNern (Escort) was third – one minute and 32 seconds further behind. The Group N category was won by Trevor Bustard/Kenny Bustard (Mitsubishi).

Although not competing, Monaghan’s, Sam Moffett (Mitsubishi) has won the Motorsport Safety Team Group N award within the Dunlop series.
