The 2018 Rathkeale House Hotel Circuit of Munster Stages Rally in association with Lyons of Limerick is go!

Posted: April 16, 2018 12:10 PM

Limerick Motor Club and the 2018 Rathkeale House Hotel Circuit of Munster Stages Rally committee, with new Clerk of the Corse, Shane O’Callaghan are delighted to announce that they will return to the West Limerick town of Rathkeale (which is only 20 miles off the M7 motorway) where the annual Circuit of Munster stages Rally takes place on Sunday the 3rd of June, 2018 (June Bank holiday Weekend).

For the last 2 years, Rathkeale and its surrounding hinterlands has been hugely supportive to the Circuit of Munster Stages Rally and Limerick Motor Club would like to take this opportunity to thank all their sponsors, associated businesses in Rathkeale and the surrounding area, the local residents, Rathkeale House Hotel, which is again rally HQ, Rathkeale Town business committee, the Garda Siochana and Limerick County Council for their unprecedented and continued support & we wish that this collaboration will continue for 2018.

With entries opening very soon, rally organisers, under the stewardship of, new Clerk of the Course for 2018, Shane O’Callagahan have plans at a very advanced stage for this years rally. Even before, rally regs have been released, leading competitors from around the country & overseas have contacted rally officials in relation to accommadation for the first weekend of June. We will be publishing a Rally Guide in due course with all details very soon.

This year's Circuit of Munster Stages Rally will challenge competitors as they weave their way along the dramatic scenery of the hills and valleys on perfect tarmac in the West Limerick lanes, located to the West of towns of Rathkeale and Newcastlewest. 3 fantastic stages covering the maximum allowed of 120km, with low road mileage, on some of the best driving roads from start to finish. It promises to be spectaclar and be an exciting race fueled weekend for competitors and spectators alike and is a must for all the family.

We wish to thank our hosts and rally HQ, Rathkeale House Hotel, who have come on board again as main sponsor for the event and will host rally HQ from 1st to 4th of June. We would also like to thank our associate sponsors, Lyons of Limerick and of course our many stage sponsors without whom their deep pockets, we would not be able to organised & promote our flagship event.

The 2018 Circuit of Munster (Limerick) is Round 3 of the Top Part West Coast Rally Championship of which we are expecting a big entry come June Bank Holiday weekend in Limerick county.

With a compressed and compact loop of 3 stages done 3 times, giving a total of 120km on 9 brillant stages, the competing crews can look forward to the superb West Limerick tarmac in a mixture of fast open roads with many tight twisty techinal sections, in perfect quantities which will challenge even the most experienced drivers and navigators.

If you enjoy the challenge which comes from special stage rallying & you are up for the experience, which is the Circuit of Munster Stages Rally, we look forward to welcoming you all to Rathkeale on the June Bank Holiday! We promise a great weekend’s rallying, which is competitor friendly and a party on Sunday night! And you don’t have to be home for work on Monday morning. Limerick is the place to be on June Bank holiday for high revs, high octane & full of action.
