Productions Tarmac Titans series, profiles the Dubliner who triumphed throughout three different eras of rallying often against teams with substantially greater resources.
He made his name in Group 1 Escorts and then progressed to his first Tarmac title in a Vauxhall Chevette. His rallying then continued with Manta 400s, a BMW M3, Toyota Celica GT4s, which brought him two successive Tarmac titles, to the latest WRC Ford Focus, in which the second generation of McHales are continuing to perpetuate the McHale rallying dynasty.
