County Derry-born Marty McCormack is enjoying a notably strong season in the Prestone MSA British Rally Championship and, with a typically skilful showing and trouble-free run in the last remaining round, could well achieve a well-deserved podium finish in this hard-fought series.

His season in the Kumho-shod Skoda Fabia R5 began with a DNF due to suspension problems on the Border Counties event. He and trusty co-driver David Moynihan then put themselves firmly in the hunt for championship honours with a 3rd place in both the Pirelli International and Scottish rallies. Read More »

Having finished a fine third overall on the previous weekend’s British Rally Championship Pirelli Rally in Carlisle, the pairing of Marty McCormack and David Moynihan were hopeful of a strong result on last weekend’s (May 13) Donegal Forestry Rally. And their wish was well and truly granted, with a memorable outright victory by the sizeable margin of over 1 minute 10 seconds for their TigerRisk Kumho-shod Skoda Fabia R5.

The victory leaves the duo joint fourth in the Irish Forest Rally Championship with three rounds to go, and just a handful of points away from the podium places of the British Rally Championship. Read More »

Kumho McCormack RACMarty McCormack and Phil Clarke slid their Kumho-shod MKII Escort to a fourth consecutive victory on September 8’s Red Kite Historic Stages event, thereby clinching the inaugural West Wales Rally Spares R.A.C. Rally Championship with one round still to run.
