We are excited to announce 5 time Irish Tarmac Rally Champion Eugene Donnelly has purchased a Right Hand Drive Proton IRIZ R5.
The car, which is currently in build, will be the first homologated R5 car to hit the international rally scene.
Eugene comments “I’m looking forward to another new project and excited to have the first homologated RHD R5 car in the world. I’m also looking forward to working with everyone at Mellors Elliot Motorsport and with Derek McGeehan of McGeehan Motorsport who I’ve had a fantastic career with. We plan to do an extensive test program before we commit to events but we would like to be ready for The Kilarney Rally of the Lakes and my favourite event The Donegal International.”
