McRae's back on Antrim title trail; UPDATE.

SCOTTISH rally legend Jimmy McRae hopes to make it four career wins at Rally Ulster when he returns to asphalt rallying in the Tuthill Porsche Challenge this weekend.

The five-times British champion was back behind the wheel for the first time in three years two rounds ago at the Pirelli International and recorded a comeback victory.

Now, after leading the series, he is determined to prove he hasn't lost any of his prowess on asphalt at an Antrim venue that has been good to him.

McRae won there in 1981, 1986 and 1988 and has been installed as one of the favourites again in the only one-make series for Porsche 911s in the world.
