McAree forced out.

Monaghan cousins Vincent and JP McAree have reluctantly had to withdraw from both this Saturday’s Fivemiletown Spring Rally and the following week’s Moonraker Forestry. Driver Vincent suffered a broken ankle while playing football recently, the injury forcing this top gravel crew onto the subs bench for the time being.

The McAree engineering team are considered to be serious contenders for this season’s Valvoline Forestry Championship and plan to be back as soon as is possible.
