Watch the 2001 Cherokee Trails International Rally from 7pm, Thursday 4th of March

Motorsport Ireland will stream highlights from the 2001 Yokohama Fiat Punto Championship from 7pm on Thursday, 25th of February.

This week’s Motorsport Ireland – RIAC classic video from the RPM Motorsport collection is highlights from the 2001 Cherokee Trails International Rally.

With a lack of rally action in Ireland in 2001 owing to an outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease, RPM travelled to America to focus on the sizeable expat community who had been putting their stamp on the SCCA ProRally series. The early 2000s were pivotal for the growth of rallying in the USA and there is still strong involvement in the sport from Irish natives to this day. However it wasn’t an Irish expat or a local talent who won the 2001 Cherokee Trails International Rally in 2001, as young English visitor Richard Tuthill triumphed in his Mitsubishi.

This programme will be available to stream below from March 4th:

Next week’s upload will feature the 1981 Circuit of Ireland Rally where, in its golden jubilee year, Jimmy McRae showed his mastery of the classic Easter marathon.
