MacCrone wins emotional Beatson’s Mull Rally


TWELVE months after being involved in the terrible crash which claimed the life of his close friend and co-driver Andy Mort, John MacCrone claimed an emotional win in the Beatson’s Mull Rally.

The Dervaig driver, piloting his Ford Fiesta R5 and reunited with co-driver Stuart Loudon, with whom he took victory in 2013, won a thrilling battle with his old rival, nine-time winner Calum Duffy.

The pair were separated by just 18 seconds as they entered the final 15-mile test at Glen Aros/Calgary Bay, in the pitch black of the Inner Hebridean island at 1.24am.

As the two drivers strived to shave every second they could off their time, it was Duffy who topped the timesheet, stopping the clock in 13 minutes 16 secsonds.
