Donegal Rally officials have made an urgent appeal for marshals for Sunday’s stages.

The length of the Fanad Head stage was halved on Saturday due to a shortage of marshals.

Crews did three loops of the shorter Fanad Head stage.

Now, rally organisers are appealing for marshals to aid with the running of the third and final day of the event. Sunday sees two loops of Gartan, High Glen and Atlantic Drive.

“We URGENTLY need your help tomorrow!” rally officials say.

“If you are available to help, please contact Ger Hays on 087-0560316.”

Interested people will be informed of meeting points.

Rally chiefs have thanked their ‘brilliant’ marshals who assisted on Friday and Saturday.

They added of the shortening of Fanad Head: “Unfortunately we ran out of time to get the longer version of Fanad and opted for the shorter version.”
