Irish rallying sat bolt upright this week with the news that M-Sport, the official works rally team for the Ford Motor Company, will appear at Ireland’s premier tarmac rally. And two very famous Irish names will be in it. Fermanagh’s Alistair Fisher, with Donegal’s Rory Kennedy co-driving, will pilot the Works Ford Fiesta Super 2000 car that won the Monte Carlo Rally in 2010 in the hands of works driver Mikko Hirvonen.. Alistair is running at the front in the FIA’s new WRC Academy, with a different spec Ford Fiesta and led the field on the WRC round in Portugal last month with it. He has the pace and will be pushing hard.” A spokesman for Donegal Motor Club said: “ This is fantastic news for the event and for Irish rallying. It will be great to have the M-Sport team in Donegal again. We suspect a few of the top seeds will be sleeping a lot less easily from now until the rally starts on June 17th next.”
