Paul added that the regulations are currently with Motorsport Ireland and we would hope to release them and the entry forms shortly.
“We have had quite a bit of interest from Ireland and indeed further afield which bodes well for this year’s event. We are really excited to bring the rally to its new home in Macroom with the classic stages such as Killnamartra, Fuhiry, Mullaghinish and Mushera to name but a few. We have a very exciting and spectacular weekend lined up in Macroom and there will be something for all the family over the rally weekend with the top clubman crews coming out to thrill the fans on these iconic stages.”
