Dunlop upsets the odds thumbnailMichael Dunlop produced another winning drive in his Ford Escort, this time on the Pokerstars Rally. WK46065.

MICHAEL Dunlop continued his winning streak on the Isle of Man at the weekend - this time in a rally car.
Dunlop mastered the wet conditions in his Ford Escort Mk2 to finish the Pokerstars Rally on the podium.
Despite his last appearance in the car coming on August's Ulster Rally, he showed no signs of rustiness.
Third-place was also good enough to secure Dunlop and navigator Rob Fagg the two-wheel-drive trophy.
“It was a good weekend - one hundred per cent," said Dunlop. "We have been out of the car for a while now, so it was good to be the first modified driver home and mix it with some of the more powerful cars.
“I like it on the Isle of Man and Rob is good at his job. I think that some people are surprised at the result!
“I would really like a few more miles in the car," he added. "By the time we were back on the pace again we had reached the end of the rally, but given how the two days have gone for us I really can't complain."
