Few motorsport events bring together the best drivers from
Ireland and the UK, but this year’s ToddsLeap.com Ulster
International Rally is the exception to the rule…
The August 21st/22nd autosport extravaganza has an all-star cast,
headed by current Irish Tarmac Championship leader Eugene Donnelly
in his nimble Skoda Fabia WRC!
A counting round of the fiercely competitive British Rally
Championship, the Ulster will host a head to head clash between
current championship joint leaders Mark Higgins (IOM) and Ireland’s
hottest ‘young gun’ Keith Cronin.
Dazzlingly fast Cronin amazed the rally fraternity by almost
beating ‘Manx Missile’ Higgins on his home rally last time out. The
vastly experienced Manxman will want to assert his authority on the
young title challenger, so a battle royale is set to be fought out
on the slippery Ulster lanes!
Another young and old pairing are set to ignite the twisting and
treacherous Ulster stages as legendary ‘Welsh Wizard’ Gwyndaf Evans
is paired with young ‘Flying Scot’ David Bogie in the Mitsubishi
Evo 10 mounted Team JR Lico!
With the entry list three quarters full, the clock is ticking
towards the August 21st start of the 2009 Ulster, so anyone wishing
to enter what is set to be a modern classic should do so
immediately. Normal priced entries ‘close’ this WEDNESDAY 29th
July, after which time any late entries will incur a financial
penalty, until the absolute entry deadline of Monday 3rd
Rallysport aficionados will doubtless note the presence of a
certain Peter Scott on the 2009 entry list. Scott is a former event
CoC and this year has swapped the ‘hot seat’ for the hot tar of
Ireland’s premier motorsport extravavganza – the ToddsLeap.com
Ulster International Rally!
