Rock on Dommy

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.
