A TOP class field is expected for the MJM Group 2017 Dogleap Tarmac Stages Rally which includes 2016 winners, Alan McGeehan and Arthur Cairns, returning to defend their title in the McGeehan Motorsport Mini WRC.
The Shackleton complex at Ballykelly will host the rally and will once again be sponsored by the MJM Group. The event takes place on Saturday August 5 with the action commencing at 10am with the first six stages.
Changes introduced to the route for the Maiden City Motor Club Turkey Run Rally proved to be very popular with competitor and spectator alike, so these have been carried through to the Dogleap Rally.
Clerk of the Course, Michael Irving, said: "By staying away from the runways and concentrating on the access roads, there is more of a challenge for the drivers.
“That makes the competition much closer and is a better spectacle for the spectators as well. We are expecting a great days rallying."
