FOR the first time the Rally of The Lakes will form part of the FIA European Historic Rally Championship.
The rally is certainly living up its international tag with crews from several different countries confirmed for the May 4/5 event within days of entries opening.
So far organisers have received three entries from Swedish crews, Tony Jansson / Erik Davidson, Christoffer Soderberg / Daniel Westlund in a pair of historic Ford Escorts and Nils Bergguist / Karl-Erik Magnusson in a Volvo Amazon.
Boston-based Galway man Frank Cunningham has also entered the historic section of the rally in his Ford Escort and he will be joined by fellow trans-Atlantic competitors Liam Egan and Michael Canny, who are both making the journey from New York to compete in a Toyota Corolla World Rally Car and a Ford Fiesta ST in the modern section of the 15-stage event.
