In the wake of the Dance To Tipperary fiasco, the TROA today announced the return to the ITRC for 2018 of Clonakilty Blackpudding as associate sponsors of the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship. They are further delighted to announce that Michelin will also support the championship as an associate sponsor.
Clonakilty Blackpudding had been title sponsor for the past four years and had always intimated they would like to keep an association with the ITRC after the deal for the title sponsorship had ended. Collette and Ed Twomey have been ever present and fantastic supporters over the past four years and continuing as an associate sponsor for 2018 proves their commitment to the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship.
Colette Twomey said, “We are delighted to continue our proud association with the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship. We look forward to seeing you all for the opening round in Clonakilty this St Patrick’s weekend for the West Cork Rally.”
Michelin have been associated with the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship and indeed all Irish rally championships and its competitors for many years and for them to continue to promote their brand through the medium of the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship bears testament to its success.
Tim Hoare, UK and Ireland Marketing Manager: “It is great to be able to support the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship which includes some of Irelands most iconic rallies. Michelin work hard to provide the most cost-effective tyres. For these long international events Michelin tyres offer long lasting consistency with rally winning pace”
The Irish Tarmac Championship is in its 40th season this year and the forthcoming Quality Hotel West Cork Rally is the opening round of the 2018 series.
