Local pair among favourites for PokerStars Rally

Roads close at 5.45pm

Roads close at 5.45pm this evening as the Pokerstars Rally gets underway in wet and windy conditions.

The event spans across the weekend as more than a hundred crews tackle numerous stages around the Island.

Local pair Andrew Dudgeon and Joe Dooley are among the favourites to win.

Dudgeon believes the weather will play a big factor in who comes out on top:

Organisers have made an appeal to people to help out with Saturday's stages at the Lhen, Dog Mills and Orrisdale.
