Borders rally preparation outfit Dommy Buckley RSC had three cars out on the Border Counties event at the weekend, as the excitement of the Brick and Steel Border Counties Rally/Prestone MSA British Rally Championship and the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship unfolded over a couple of days in the Jedburgh forests.
It was quite an operation for the Kelso crew, with 10 mechanics, one M-Sport engineer and Dommy’s former co-driver Doug Redpath as co-ordinator.
They ran three Ford Fiesta R5s: Tom Cave finished second overall in the BRC event, Donnie McDonald finished first in class in the BRC event and Rory Young finished third overall in the National B event.
While all this was going on, Dommy himself was in Ireland, running two cars in the second round of the Irish Tarmac Championship. Again, he had four mechanics and an M-Sport engineer.
Alister Fisher finished third overall in another Fiesta R5 and now leads the championship.
