Fassbender Rally of the Lakes documentary broadcasts on-line Tuesday

Fassbender Rally of the Lakes documentary broadcasts on Tuesday evening .

One year on from his appearance on the Cartell.ie Rally of the Lakes, local Hollywood A-lister Michael Fassbender will release an on-line documentary of his experience on the event.

The story follows Fassbender, a self-confessed petrol head as he makes the transition from a circuit racer to a rally driver – two very different but closely aligned disciplines.

Prior to last year’s Rally of the Lakes, Fassbender had raced in Ferrari Challenge events in the USA.

He made his race debut in 2017 and had completed to two partial Ferrari seasons before making his rally debut this time last year.

He was named as the rally’s ambassador as part of the event’s 40th anniversary celebrations last year and drove a Ford Escort Mk2 on iconic Killarney rally roads like Moll’s Gap.

The documentary follows Michael’s progress in the rally, an event won by local rally star Paul Nagle. Both are former pupils at Fossa National School but followed two different career paths which only crossed over for the first-time last May.
