Omagh Motor Club Ltd. are delighted to once again have the support of McKelvey Asbestos Removal Ltd as headline sponsor to the 40th Anniversary of the Bushwhacker Rally which will be held on Saturday 26th September 2015. This popular event is the penultimate round of the McGrady Insurance MSA Northern Ireland Stage Rally Championship and a full entry is anticipated.

To commemorate this landmark occasion, a road closure order has been granted to the Club which will entail a compact format of 3 stages completed twice consisting of approx. 40 stage miles and is based at the traditional Lough Bradan, Carrickaholten and Killeter forests. Start and finish venues will be held at the Silverbirch Hotel with central servicing at Aikens Caravan yard on the Drumquin Road outside Castlederg.

All stages this year have been extended with a 9 mile stage on the combined Slievedoo and Glenderg forests at Killeter and a testing 6.5 mile stage on the combined Lough Bradan North and South forests.

As small linkages of public road are required, spectators will be restricted to four viewing areas in total on the Lough Bradan and Killeter stages and no access on the Carrickaholten stage will be permitted. Also, access to the stage start and finish areas will be prohibited and strictly reinforced by marshalls. This is in line with the introduction of Motorsport Association (MSA) strict guidelines introduced earlier this year after the Scottish Parliament Inquiry recommendations into the spectator fatalities on two Scottish rallies within the past couple of years.

Further access information can be obtained in the rally programmes and these will be available a few days prior to the event at the following outlets : Silverbirch Hotel ; McCullagh's Filling Station, Campsie Road ; Aiken's Caravan Yard ; Vivo Shop, Main Street, Drumquin; Post Office Shop, Main Street, Killeter. Also, a variety of 40th Anniversary Bushwhacker Rally merchandise will be available at the Silverbirch Hotel on the morning of the rally and at Aiken's Yard during the day.

Further information can be obtained via omaghmotorclub.com or the Club's facebook page.
