Press Release No 3 - Juniors and Historics to run first on the road

Posted: March 10, 2011 9:50 PM

Organisers of the upcoming Carlton Hotel Circuit of Kerry Stages Rally today announced detail’s of a new format for the Junior and Historic categories of the rally. The new format will see both categories compete over the first 6 stages of the rally and also be seeded into the mainfield of the event which will eliminate the need for crews to wait around during the day to join the second half of the rally. The winners of both categories will also be brought over the finish ramp before the main field and will be interviewed by On the Limits Sports which will be televising the rally to a world wide audience on TG4, Motors TV and Sky Sports which inturn will give the crews more exposure throughout the rally.

Kerry Motor Club would like to thank the MI Rallies Committee for allowing this on a trial basis and if successful may be used by other clubs subject to the event starting 131/141 to include Juniors and Historic competitors.

Entry fee for Junior & Historic’s is €250 for 6 stages and Entry form and Regulations can be downloaded or competitors can use the Online entry system.

Any overseas crews who wish to compete on the Carlton Hotel Circuit of Kerry Stages Rally can contact +353876615991 or e mail to help and assist crews with flight, ferry and accommodation details.

Press Release 1

Posted: January 27, 2011 12:55 PM

Kerry Motor Club, the organisers of the Circuit of Kerry Rally are pleased to announce the reappointment of Senan Raggett as Clerk of the course for his 5th consecutive rally.

Senan, has been a member of KMC since 1990, and initially joined the club as a marshal and worked through the ‘ranks’ to be COC of one of the most popular events on the Irish Motorsport Calendar.

Speaking last night at a Kerry Motor Club meeting, Senan thanked the directors and members for his appointment, he also announced a few radical changes to follow on from last years novel approach in helping to attract entries in such economically challenging times. They are as follows:

    1. Entry fee will be reduced to €450
    2. €250 Voucher for each class winner for Kerry Mini Stages Rally 2011(Banna)
    3. Modified Challenge
    For the second year KMC will offer 2 free entries from 4 nominated events, to highest placed car in classes 9 to 14 (those events are Circuit of Munster, Galway Summer, Clare Stages or Kerry Mini Stages)
    In addition to the above if ‘The Modified Challenge’ is won by a car in class 13 or 14, a free entry will be awarded to the highest place car from classes 9 to 12.
    4. As Kerry is not a counting round of the Dunlop Championship, TV coverage was not included; however following discussions with On the Limit Sport, the event will be televised and shown to a worldwide audience. A complimentary DVD of all cars and the programme will be given to each crew.
    5. Again The Carlton Hotel have been amazing with their offer for the weekend, A double/twin room for Saturday night B&B €99 and stay Sunday night FREE!!!
Regulation and more details will follow soon
