Sunday July 30th sees the return of The Jim Walsh Cork Forest Rally, one of Ireland’s premier Forest Rally events. The event is once again a counting round of the Valvoline Irish Forest Rally Championship. The Rally is also the stage for what has now become one of the most coveted prizes in Irish Modified rallying, The Mark 2 Master Cup.

Cork Motor Club is delighted to announce the return of Mallow based firm, Crafted Fitted Furniture and Joinery as the main event sponsor for 2017. This is the 3nd year running that CFF&J have partnered up with Cork Motor Club to help create an event that attracts competitors and spectators from the four corners of the country and beyond. CFF&J are one of Irelands leading suppliers of Fitted Furniture and Joinery products and are a real North Cork success story.

The 2017 event also sees Paul Casey return as Clerk of the Course after a 5 year break. Speaking with Paul recently it was revealed that the event will once again be based from CFF&J’s hometown of Mallow with the event headquarters located at The Roundabout Inn. Paul has been busy working with his team over the last number of weeks, getting the details finalized on the 2017 event. Paul revealed that the club received extremely positive feedback from all competitors following the 2016 event due to the quality of the stages and the compact route used. As a result the 2017 event will follow a very similar format.

The event will once again consist of 6 super smooth special stages based in the Boggeragh Mountains, running a 3x2 format. Two of the morning stages are variations of old Cork Forestry classics and the third test will be a new version of the magnificent 16km Boggeragh Drive stage. This 16km gravel masterpiece made its Cork Forestry debut in 2016 and immediately gained a place as a firm favorite with the competitors. This year’s version will certainly not disappoint, with a little bit of everything stretched out over the 16km. The running of this stage has once again been made possible due to close co-operation with Coillte, Co County Council and The Boggeragh Windfarm.

Total stage distance for the rally is approximately 70km, with a total road distance of approximately 130km. Service will be conducted after every 2 stages. The Jim Walsh Cork Forest Rally has always prided itself on being a competitor friendly event. This year’s event will be even more competitor focused with Rally HQ, Parc Ferme and Service all located within walking distance of each other. First car away from the start ramp is 09:30 and first car back to Parc Ferme is 16:00 making it a very compact days rallying.

Further information on associate & stage sponsors will be revealed over the coming weeks along with all the developments and build up to what promises to be another very special event.
