Donegal was always going to be a must as rallying can do no wrong in the north west and sure enough the response was beyond all expectations. We ended up with one hundred and sixty five crews, eleven former winning drivers and six former winning co-drivers. The sun shone between the showers on the big day and the undoubted highlight was the run through the Ramelton Town stage where their Festival Committee put on a fabulous welcome for the crews as hundreds lined the streets.
