Ollie Kierce Cars Carrigtwohill has come on board as main sponsor of the event for the next 3 years . The event will once again be run out of Midleton with Rally HQ (The Midleton Park Hotel), Parc Ferme and Service all in the one location.

Emmet Cronin returns again as Clerk Of The Course and there is no doubt since Emmet has taken over the event, it has grown in stature every year.

Speaking with event main sponsor Ollie Kierce of Ollie Kierce Car Sales Carrigtwohill, he said as a former competitor and lifelong fan of rallying I am delighted to be associated with both the rally and the Imokilly Motor Club. Like myself in business I started small and built up and the Imokilly Mini Stages grows in stature every year .There is a great bunch of people in the club who brought rallying back to East Cork so they should be supported .

Clerk Of The Course for the event Emmet Cronin said it’s great to have a former competitor like Ollie Kierce of Ollie Kierce Cars Carrigtwohill on board as our main sponsor , Ollie is a former class winning co driver in the Forest Rally Championship and understands what rallying is all about. The event has grown in stature over the past few years with a superb entry in 2017 we hope to repeat that this year ,but lots of help and many hours of work are required on the run up to the rally so if anyone wants to help out bringing Motorsport to East Cork get in touch with us at the Imokilly Motor Club.

Emmet said we are also indebted to our associated sponsors Ace Signs, Pat & Jason Ryan Motors Youghal , CB Tool Hire, Scariff Plant Hire, ITS (Innovative Total Solutions), Ahern Commercial Overhaulin'.

The event is a huge cash boost to Midleton and the local environs with around 100 cars expected to start, then factor in service crews families of the competitors and spectators, last year there was not a bed to be had in the Midleton area. This year the club are hopeful of much the same.
