Callum Devine’s Stall Allows Matt Edwards to Extend Lead at Donegal Rally

Donegal In an exciting turn of events at the Donegal International Rally, reigning champion Callum Devine’s misfortune allowed Matt Edwards to extend his lead.

McCourt expressed his contentment with his performance, saying, “We’re having a great run. We’re still here and happy with that fact. There is a jump there towards the end some are mentioning, but it was the gravel we were looking at.”

Acknowledging the competition, McCourt added, “To be fair to Matt and Callum, they are in a race of their own now. We’ll just try to keep these other lads off our tails. We’re halfway through, but there is a long way to go yet.”

The battle for fourth to sixth places remains fierce, with Meirion Evans clocking 6 minutes 04.5 seconds, Josh Moffett close behind at 6 minutes 04.8 seconds, and David Kelly at 6 minutes 04.6 seconds. These three competitors are separated by a mere 0.3 seconds.
