Japcars.ie are set to sponsor the Midlands East Rally Championship for 2008 following the withdrawal of Sleatorauto. The popular 6 round clubman’s championship takes in rounds in Birr, Midland, Almc, Gsmc, and Castle Motor Clubs. A welcome addition to the 2008 Championship will be the North East Motorsports Club Mini Stages Rally. Fergal Costello proprietor of Japcars.ie said, “ I am delighted to get the opportunity to sponsor this championship as I feel that it a series has a great marketing potential and all the rallies are very professionally organised”. Fergal who originally is from Leitrim is a well-known driver on the rally scene.

The Midlands East Championship consists of 3 Multi Stage and 3 Mini Stage Rallies making it an ideal championship for the small budget competitor. WRC Car are not eligible for this championship and this is what makes this a true Clubman’s Championship.
