Imokilly Motor Club are delighted to announce preliminary details of the Great Stuff Caterers sponsored Imokilly Mini Stages rally scheduled to take place on Sunday July the 26th. Following the successful running of the Imokilly Single Stage over the last 3 years we step it up a gear this year by running a mini stages rally. We also make the move from east Cork where the event has been based down the N25 to our near neighbours in Dungarvan.
We are delighted once again to have Bryan Allen and his company Great Stuff Caterers back on board as title sponsor. The rally will be based on the weekend of the 25th & 26th in the Park Hotel in Dungarvan who have come on board as rally headquarters and associated sponsor. Scrutiny, Parc Ferme and Service will all be located within the town which will make it very accessible to everyone.
The rally itself will consist of 2 x 15Km stages in the West Waterford area each repeated 3 times giving a total stage distance of 90 Kms over the course of the day with service after every 2 stages. Club secretary Derek Power from Old Parish again takes on the job as Clerk of the Course for the event. Commenting on the rally Derek said “for the last number of years we ran this event as a single stage rally in the east Cork area so it gives me great pleasure as C.O.C to be able to bring a motorsport event back near my home area of Dungarvan and visit some stages that have never been used before”. The event will be a counting round of the Plasticbags.ie Southern 4 Rally Championship as well as a round of the Imokilly Motor Club Championship.
Over previous years the rally has attracted competitors from all over the Island of Ireland and the same is envisaged come July. PR of the stages in question will begin shortly but in the meantime you can catch up with all that is happening both in the club and with the rally by logging onto our website www.imokillymotorclub.com or follow us on Facebook.
