Déjà vu Motorsport is going west in 2020 to fire up memories of some of the great Galway and Circuit of Ireland stages. Our rally re-union will centre on Westport. This Georgian architectural gem, with its tree lined malls and stone bridges over the river Carrowbeg, designed by William Leeson in 1780, will host Déjà Vu Connemara next September, (final date to be announced).
The popular tourist destination was first put on the map in the 16thcentury by the pirate queen Grace O’Malley who plundered the seas from her base on Clew Bay. Déjà Vu Connemara will be setting out to rediscover famous stretches of road like the Lough Nafooey and Sky Road stages that were used on the five-day Circuit of Ireland and Galway International rallies.
Our weekend will have a familiar feel to the Déjà vu’s run in Killarney, Belfast and Donegal. Arriving in Wesport on Friday, entrants will register and enjoy a welcome reception. Then on Saturday morning they set off on a 100 + mile run through the spectacular Connemara scenery.
On their return there will be time to change before the gala dinner featuring big screen footage of historic rallying action; personality interviews; and top class entertainment.
The cavalcade of mouth-watering motors will be a travelling museum of rallying history and the entry will be sprinkled with former champions and some special international guests.
As on all Déjà vu Motorsport events, all the proceeds will go to a local charity, shortly to be announced. Registration, limited to the first 120 crews, will open on the 1st, February 2020.
