SUIRWAY GROUP SOUTH EAST STAGES RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP
Posted: February 3, 2017 7:06 AM
The 2017 SUIRWAY GROUP South East Stages Rally Championship was launched at the 2016 awards night in The Seven Oaks Hotel in Carlow. James Coleman, MD of the SUIRWAY GROUP, who presented the awards for the 2016 championship, expressed his delight at the exposure that his company enjoyed through his sponsorship of the championship.
The SUIRWAY GROUP SES Rally Championship has been commented on as one of the better kept secrets in Irish rallying. Despite the fact that the South East Stages Rally Championship has been in existence for about 30 or so years in one form or another.
Double points for nominated bonus round.
Super special stage for fastest registered competitor in each group.
2 Sponsored entries on each round.
Competitors best 5 rounds to count.
Extra prizes for Juniors (Group 1)
New for 2017 is a group for the J1000 class
Free tickets to championship prizegiving for all award winners.
The Class definitions were replaced with the word Group as there was a dissimilarity between the National Championships / Motorsport Ireland classes and those of the South East Stages. Instead of having 20 classes in the championship, the classes were adjusted into GROUPS. This was to allow the maximum number of competitors to compete and attain maximum points versus the number of cars in each group.
The promoting clubs agreed to sponsor an entry for one event, this was matched by the SUIRWAY GROUP also sponsoring an entry for each event for drivers who registered for the championship. For example Pierce Doheny (Group 2)w won the sponsored entry for the 2017 Willie Loughman Forestry Rally. From the 2017 registered crews there will be two sponsored entries from Group 2 to the Moonraker Forestry Rally. (*Terms and conditions apply. The crews will have to pay the insurance levies)
