Skibbereen Ready for Fastnet Rally
Skibbereen & District Motor Club are delighted to announce details for the 2006 West Cork Hotel Fastnet Stages Rally.  

The Rally will start at 8:00am on Sunday Morning, the 29th of October from the NCT Centre in Skibbereen. The event will be decided over 8 stages in a 2x2 format close to the host town; with the cars returning to the NCT centre for service after every 2 stages. The motor club are expecting this compact format to be popular with both competitors and spectators alike.  

With both the Dunlop National and 023 Tiles Southern 4 Championships already decided, it’s a race to the flag for the 151 crews, headed by last years’ winners and outgoing Dunlop National Rally Champions, Ray Breen and Andrew Purcell in their Ford Focus WRC.  

Leading the Subaru challenge is the 2nd seed driver Patrick Elliot from Cavan, Elliot and his navigator Paul Goodman have a very good record on the classic stages around Skibbereen. Welsh driver Gareth Jones with Cork Co-Driver David Moynihan, will run at No 3. Gareth is one of 12 overseas drivers to enter the rally.

  At No. 4 is the leading local driver on the event Denis Cronin with Helen Sullivan calling the notes in the Subaru Impreza WRC. Making up the top 5 are Aaron MacHale/Craig Parry in another Ford Focus WRC.  

The Patterson’s National Group N award will be the main focus for the top seeds in the production category, Alan Ring/Adrian Deasy and Willie Fannin/Mick Courtney. The Subaru pair will also face the challenge of the Mitsubishi crews, Gabriel Martin/Paddy Robinson, and local drivers Keith Cronin/Anthony O’Connell and the Kelleher brothers Martin and Kevin.

  Leading the 2 wheel drive challenge, are the very rapid Darrian T90 GTR of John Dolan/Gwynford Jones and the Ford Escort driven by Phil Collins and navigator Derek Brannigan.  The event will also run historic and junior categories, with these crews starting the rally later in the day.  

The official launch of the 2006 Fastnet Rally will take place on Tuesday the 24th of October in the Rally Headquarters, the West Cork Hotel Skibbereen, starting at 8:00pm.  

The official rally programme will be available in Newsagents and Petrol stations in West Cork from Monday 21stof October, and will contain colour maps and stage details, along with numerous articles.

Fastnet Rally moves to new base.
Skibbereen & District Car Club have announced that this year's Fastnet stages rally will have a new H.Q.

After a long and successful association with the Marine Hotel in Glandore – so successful the event became known as the Glandore rally- it has been revealed that the Marine Hotel which is undergoing a major reconstruction, will not be hosting the rally this year.

The club would like to take this opportunity to thank Sean and Theresa O’Brien, their family and all of their staff for the tremendous contribution that they made to the success and the growth of the rally over the years.

The rally has had its Scrutiny and Park Ferme in Skibbereen now for a number of years and this year the town will also be the Headquarters, with the announcement that The West Cork Hotel, on the banks of the Ilen River is to be the Main Sponsor and Event Headquarters.

The West Cork Hotel - Fastnet Stages Rally will be the final round of the Dunlop National Rally Championship and the 023 Tiles Southern 4 Championship, both of which could yet be decided in Skibbereen on October Bank Holiday weekend. It is also a counting round in The Skibbereen and District Car Club Championship.

It is believed that this move will be hugely popular with both spectators and competitors as it means that Scrutiny, Park Ferme and Rally Headquarters are all within a few hundred metres of each other.

The rally will be using the trusted format of 4 stages repeated twice and the Clerk of the Course Michael O’ Riordan and his team of dedicated assistants have picked 4 stages which will ensure that whoever lifts the Fastnet Rock Sculpture at prize giving on Sunday 29th October will have worked hard over the weekend to deserve the honour.
