James McGreal at Birr Stages Rally

Wet conditions greeted James McGreal & Chris Mitchel as they brought their recently acquired Mitsubishi Evo 6 out for a run at Birr Stages Rally to blow off any cobwebs before their home event Mayo Stages Rally next weekend.
The pair had a good run out in the ex Andrew Stewart car, despite the wet & mucky conditions making the stages based around Borris-in-Ossory treacherous at times.
Overcoming gearbox gremlins heading into the last loop, the pair finished the event third in Class 15 and 44th overall
Donagh Kelly put in masterful performance to retain the Birr Stages Rally title in his Ford Focus WRC.
