M-Sport Ford promises to send Nagle off in style
Paul Nagle’s teammates at the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team have promised to give the Aghadoe man the best possible send-off in Spain next weekend.
Last week Nagle announced his retirement from the World Rally Championship and the October 20 to 24 Rally RACC Catalunya – Rally de España will be his last outing as a factory co-driver.
His driver Craig Breen announced this week Cavan man James Fulton will replace Nagle from Rally Japan in November.
“First of all, I’d like to thank Paul for all of the hard work and effort he’s put in for both Craig and the team this season. He’s a great character and will definitely be missed.
“We all agreed it would be best for James to get a rally under his belt before heading to Monte Carlo next year, we did the same with [teammates] Gus Greensmith and Jonas Anderson in Monza last year and it reflected in a strong result for them on the Monte this year,” said Richard Millener, M-Sport Ford World Rally Team Principal.
“Paul still has one more rally to go yet though, so for now, it’s full focus on Rally Spain and let’s send Paul off with a great result!”
It marks the end of a glistening career for Nagle who leaves the sport with five overall World Rally Championship victories and 18 WRC podiums to his name.
