The prowess of the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship, which had been steadily growing across Europe in recent years, positively exploded onto the world scene in 2007 when the WRC Works teams came to play with our regular sealed surface aces, in preparation for Rally Ireland.
For Eugene Donnelly and Paul Kiely, it was a reality check on their way to a historic consecutive fourth championship win. They mixed it with the Ford and Citroen WRC Teams in Galway, Donegal and Cork and battled with the multiple British Rally Champion Mark Higgins and his Irish Co-driver Rory Kennedy, throughout the eight round season.
Enjoy the WRC and Group N highlights in this annual review of the greatest Irish rallying season to date. We recall Donnelly’s battle with Gronholm in Galway; Mark Higgin’s mighty win on the Easter Stages; Kris Meeke’s amazing drives in Killarney and Ulster; Donnelly’s dominance on the Jim Clark and Manx International rallies; and Sebastien Loeb’s learning curve in Donegal and then total dominance in Cork.
