This months issue folks is packed from start to finish. The front cover features the superb start Declan and Brian Boyle had to the year by winning the Galway International Rally. We have an in depth report on the opening round of the 2014 Irish Tarmac Championship.
Martin Holmes looks back at Rally Sweden, and what seems to be a rejuvenated Jari-Matti Latvalla this year, and his win on the second round of the WRC. Martin then looks at Rally Mexico, and event that starts this week.
We have our FIA European round up with a report from the Latvia Rally, as well as in depth reports from some of the events that have taken place in the last few weeks. The Wydean saw victory for David Bogie, while Paul Bird wrapped up the win on the North West Stages and Richard Hill took a dramatic win on the Red Kite Stages.
Simon Mauger won the South Down Stages Rally at Goodwood, while Peter Stephenson took the spoils on the Riponian Stages and don’t forget the stunning performance by Donegal’s Declan Gallagher in the Toyota Starlet to win the Galway National.
We look forward to the start of the Dunlop National Championship, which kicks off next week with the Mayo Stages. The entry list for the opening round already looks impressive.
Pacenotes got the chance to look at Thomas Purdy’s 260hp Ford Escort recently and we feature the car this month in its rather mean green color scheme.
Our Club of the Month is Enniskillen MC, who celebrate 50 years this year.
Don’t forget too, that Pacenotes Rally Magazine is available too on iPad and other devices, so you can take us with you wherever you go.
